Going to college is probably one of the most important things that I have done in my life so far. Thinking back to everything I have done in the past ten years or so, I can see that taking to leap of faith to join college and further my education was such a huge step for me and I am glad that I did.

Also, my brother had talked to me about two months ago and had told me his experience with going to college to earn his English degree and me, being the competitive brother I am, didn’t want him to be the only sibling to earn a degree.

Throughout the novel, True Son remains greatly influenced by three fathers who try to teach him the values he will carry into adulthood: Cuyloga, his Indian father; Harry Butler, his white father; and the Sun, his spiritual?

He comes to Hrothgar, the result of a familial loyalty because Hrothgar helped Beowulf's father out of a difficult spot many years before. Ridding the kingdom of Grendel and his mother fulfills his duty as a hero. Beowulf rounds out his epic qualities by proving himself to be a capable ruler.
