Grendel had been terrorizing the Danes for twelve years and none of them could defeat Grendel with weapons During the battle with Grendel, Grendel notices Beowulf’s extraordinary strength: “He knew at once that nowhere on earth Had he met a man whose hands were harder; His mind was flooded with fear- but nothing could take his talons and himself from that tight Hard grip” (p. 33, 433-437). To proclaim his victory and triumph over evil, Beowulf hangs an arm of Grendel’s, which he savagely ripped from the beast, from the ceiling.Later, Beowulf encounters Grendel's mother, who is even more terrifying than Grendel. In the battle with Grendel’s mother there is yet another example of Beowulf’s super-human strength when Beowulf lifts a huge sword that was forged by giants and kills Grendel’s mother with it. It was said that the sword was magical so that no ordinary man would have the strength to lift it. Beowulf also boasts of his strength many times throughout the poem.
He fought the monsters with his bare hands. He had the true characteristics of a hero, strength, bravery, and courage. Nobody would dare do the things Beowulf attempted in his lifetime. I envisage during all his battles he possesses all the traits of an epic hero. So, Beowulf, travels from Geatland to save Herot from the demons that lurk about.
Strength, honor, and resilience are all words that captures the essence of Beowulf. During the Anglo-Saxon era, Beowulf is a hero who strikes fear in his enemies and relief in his allies. Beowulf is widely-regarded as the most honorable and ruthless hero in all of the world; he defends villages of people from blood-hungry predators, defeats sea monsters, and defeats Grendel and Grendel’s mother in the epic poem Beowulf. However, Beowulf can be an egomaniac at times. For instance, before Beowulf’s epic fight and defeat of the monster Grendel, Beowulf strips nude and fights the monster nude to boast and show off.
Lancelot is such a powerful knight that he was able to single handedly win this tournament, and defeat close to forty knights. Not only did he vanquish these knights, but he also wounded most of them so badly that they would never fully recover from their injuries. After winning the tournament, Lancelot set out to rescue the knights of the Round Table that were captured by Sir Tarquine. Lancelot then endures an aggressive battle with Tarquine, and Tarquine tells him that out of all the knights he has ever challenged, Lancelot is the most powerful. “You are the most powerful knight I have fought yet, but I fear you may be the one whom in the whole world I most hate” (1079).
The character I was assigned from Mr. Halliday was BeoWulf. BeoWulf is a mighty and fierce warrior. He hears the news that there is a monster attacking people in the Land of Dane, and no one has been able to fight him, and whoever tries they end up dying. So then he thinks that he should be the one and then he Call’s to the Adventure, so then Beowulf argues with his father about going to the Land of Dane, but his father thinks that it is too dangerous, but despite the fact of his father, BeoWulf scurries to kill the evil monster, whose name is Grendel. He goes to the land of Dane to fight Grendel, and ends up defeating him.
First he was strong enough to stand up to Grendel and claim his victory against his opponent. Everyone knew his strength and therefore believed he was the only one capable of fighting the monster Grendel. In the text the guard for Scyldings tells Beowulf, “I have never seen a mightier warrior on earth” Beowulf was also very strong when he was able to rip out Grendel's shoulder, a monster who made the Danes suffer a tremendous amount. Beowulf was also courageous in his battle because he didn't back down against Grendel. He knew of Grendel's fierce attacks on the Danes but he still came to fight him.
Christopher Reeves once said, “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” Although Beowulf was human, he was not an ordinary individual, hero, or king, for he was a man who displayed superhuman qualities in his efforts to protect the Danish and Geatish people. Beowulf, who was established Geatish warrior that spent his life in battle, showed these extraordinary characteristics that made him an epic hero, one who possesses superhuman, almost god-like qualities. Being constantly on a quest, risking his life for glory and the greater good of society, and being superiorly intelligent, courageous and strong are the three most important reasons why Beowulf deserves such a notable
Bravery is one of the qualities that would make Beowulf a hero today. In the epic, he faces many powerful enemies that he must overcome. When he fights his greatest foe a dragon he is much older. His courage urges him into the battle even though his age has weakened him. Before his battle with his greatest foe he shows his
Beowulf was recognized as the “strongest of the Geats” and an incomparable warrior whom none could surpass. What he is most noted for is how important he finds glory to be. When he requests to fight Grendel for Hrothgar he states he will fight without a sword, as Grendel fears none and fights using his claws. Beowulf fears that if he points his sword to a creature that uses none would be disgraceful and will not bring glory. “But Beowulf longed only for fame, leaped back into battle” line 486, this shows that even as Beowulf is faced with a fight that may be his last, his need for glory
Grendel returns to the cavern where, with his dying breath, he tells his mother the name of the man who killed him. Then you see our second conflicts were She and Beowulf are clearly attracted to one another. Unferth gives him his own familial sword. Beowulf goes to the cavern to kill Grendel 's mother. He uses the Dragon Horn to light his way.
