While the poem Beowulf is littered with historical facts it ultimately represents the thoughts and fears of a culture that are no longer present within the world. Also worth noting is that the poet who wrote Beowulf did not write the poem from a first hand perspective but as someone who grew up hearing tales of monsters and heroes, a person who straddled an era of history in which pagan traditions were fading, but not entirely absent, to a new Christian religion. Fact and physical artifacts may tell that a man once existed in a land but it can tell nothing of how that man felt, myth however
Charlie did not even benefit that well from being a test subject in the experiment.
