Continuing with the hopeful tone, we learn that "Sigemund's glory grew and grew" (Heaney 885). This growing admiration which exists even after his death is a result of his victorious slaying of a dragon. In contrast to the previous image of Sigemund in battle with his comrades, he kills the dragon by the strength of only his hands. For these valiant efforts against the monster he is rewarded with all the treasures of the hoard. It is never made clear what exactly is included in the treasure, but we can assume that it is more metaphorical than tangible.
The epic poem Beowulf is considered as one of the biggest and most important works of Old English Literature. The Epic poem Beowulf was written between the 8th and early 11th century. The epic poem was about a battle. Beowulf is the hero of Scandinavia. The village has been under attack by a monster.

Beowulf went into the cave and Grendel’s mother was shaped shifted into a beautiful woman.
They both showed the humanity of Beowulf and Grendel, the foreshadowing, and the and the temptations of Beowulf. He was seen as a monster in society and that he was made this way by society. Also, Beowulf was seen as a god because during the poem they said he was really strong, like godlike strong and that he was able to rip Grendel’s arm off. Then, he was not able to rip his arm off.

Since Beowulf originated from Anglo-Saxons, are the traditions that affect the events of the poem Beowulf accurately represent those of the Anglo-Saxons? The basic purpose of an epic poem was to share stories of the culture’s history, pass down the values of the culture, and also to entertain the listeners. The Anglo-Saxons had a pagan culture that honored warriors more than anything. In the events of the poem Beowulf, the traditions of the Anglo-Saxons are properly illustrated. Anglo Saxons were people who settled in Great Britain after the Roman soldiers left in 410 A.D.
The novella is about an old and experienced fisherman, Santiago, who has a boy, Manolin, as a companion. After 84 days without a catch, the old man goes deeper into the water and hooks an enormous marlin. There is a long battle between the old man and the marlin, which the old man eventually wins, but then loses the marlin to sharks when rowing it back to land. Although Petrov’s film omitted many aspects of the novella to fit it into a short film, he still captured the essence of the novella and then used artistic creativity to further it; he specifically succeeded in capturing man’s interconnectedness to nature and the relationship between the old man and the boy. Critics may argue that
The only thing I could do was ignore those voices and move on to prove them wrong and that is exactly what I did. “Carrying the sword Hrunting, Beowulf goes to the lake where Grendel’s mother has her underwater lair. Then, fully armed, he dives to the depths of this watery hell” (page 39, in italics). After Beowulf and Grendel’s outcome, Unferth realizes he was wrong and even offers a truce, by giving him a sword, Hrunting, and supporting him against his next great battle. Beowulf stood up for himself, went out and defeated Grendel, and saved the mead hall, while proving Unferth wrong.
I know it sounds backwards but on September 23, 1926, Gene Tunney beat him in front of 120,000 people in Pennsylvania. He later returned to his wife at the hotel and said his most famous quote, “Honey, I forgot to duck.” Approximately one year later, Dempsey challenged Tunney to a second fight, which was the most disputed showdown in all of boxing history. There was a new rule in the boxing match that while the referee was counting to 3 (the normal count of a knock out), the fighter must return to his corner of the ring. Dempsey did not do this, and gave Tunney a chance to regain his posture and return to the fight via the extended count.

Beowulf's last fight is against a dragon, the exact opposite of a chieftain or a lord. While a chieftain gives treasure, the dragon takes it into its hoard. So, it is a fight against exact opposites, chieftain against dragon, good butting heads with evil. But, why did Beowulf fight, if he knew he was going to die? Let's see if I can find out.
