Beowulf defeated the dragon but also lost his life while fighting for his people. He states, “So God/Gives guidance to those who can find it from no one/Else” (Beowulf 12-14). This quote is saying, how Beowulf will do what others will not do, he’s showing his bravery towards Hrothgar. The other criteria the Anglo-Saxon hero shows is generous.

Those who died in the war experienced victory because they lost their lives. Last stanza, As he defeated--dying--On whose forbidden ear-The distant strains of triumph-Burst agonized and clear!

Finally, the Bard of Avon shouldn’t be taught in classes because it’s difficult for students to understand, his work is not culturally diverse, and is outdated for today’s students. Of course though some people would disagree and say that Shakespeare should continue on being taught in class because “Shakespeare is truly a writer for for the whole world” (378). Yes, he may be a great writer but classrooms everywhere so diverse culturally this generation. Dana Dusbiber a english teacher from Sacramento who refuses to teach Shakespeare to her students said “I do not believe that a long-dead, British guy is the only writer who can teach my students about the human condition” ( Bradford Thomas). A dead 400 year guy year old guy shouldn’t be the only one who teaches students of today’s generation the values of love, war, and life.

This lead to Gilgamesh’s search for eternal life which lead him to understand that death will always follow life. The “Epic of Gilgamesh” guided the Mesopotamians to this conclusion that people aren’t suppose to live forever because their divine hero can die too. Gilgamesh was their own hero, sort of like Superman.

Odysseus pulled through all these obstacles and made it back to his homeland to reclaim his power as king.
