Introduction: “Our language is the reflection of ourselves. A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers.” Those who access to the great potential of literature and language attain widespread liberation and selfhood. This reward allows people to formulate and trigger defiance from the conscious subjugation they have fallen subject to. Language also however, can be used as a tool of power itself whether it be by oppressive reigning powers or a moral code.

Duality is a rare dynamic method in all kinds of texts; it improves and supports the poem to sound delightful. One of the most important ways duality features in the epic is the way in which it talks about big themes and important events in the story. When reading dualities, you can picture the situation, and obtain a beneficial comprehension.

The Anglo-Saxon society and our modern society, although thousands of years apart these two periods have characteristics in areas that are alike and different in more ways than one. Let us talk about the values and the code of conduct of these two societies. First of all, during the Anglo-Saxon period, fighting is the main solution for them to solve problems and with fighting comes power. Power, power over people, power over land, power over resource and treasures. To them, power is everything and for one person to attain so much power, one must become a hero and perform heroic deeds.

Some of the prime components of the foundation are epistemology, methodology, and method, all of which are interrelated and cemented together. The result of these contributes to the authenticity, reliability, and clarity that enables qualitative methodology to deliver such compelling results, and how researchers and participants are able corroborate in any study. Epistemology, in a most general way, is that branch of philosophy which is concerned with the value and origin of human knowledge, (Dubray (1909).
