"Crying that no better king had ever Lived, no prince so mild, no man So open to his people, so deserving of praise." (Raffel60)

Modern Times with Beowulf

Superhero or just an average person?

Beowulf is an epic poem that has survived since about 521 AD. The poem has been translated from old English to modern day English. After all this time what is the true story of Beowulf? People may never know, as it translated through the years the poem could have lost meaning and truthfulness. If the poem has lost that importance, then why does society still read it today? Maybe people view Beowulf as a superhero and look up to his mighty courage and power he portrayed. Then again, Beowulf could have been an average man trying to do the right thing for his people and kingdom that he cared so dearly about.
