Beowulf Project

Hero

Sarah:

I decided to choose my sister Sarah as my hero because she is always there for me and is extremely important no matter the circumstance. She always answers my questions and is so loving. She has helped me with relationships, life decisions, and much more. She has also helped me overcome certain fears and is constantly giving me advice about life. She inspires and motivates me to work hard and helps me realize whats important in life. She is a great example of a leader as well. She is always helping others and is the most selfless person I know.

Analysis:

Quote:

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."

- Christopher Reeve


Meaning: This quote is significant because it shows that anyone can be a hero. I think the objective of this quote is to show individuals that anyone can be a hero, but you must work hard and fight through different hurdles in your life. The message here is to show that appearance or different features doesn't matter. All that matters is what is within inside you. I really liked this quote because it helps me to realize I can do anything if I put my mind to it.


Connection: This quote is similar to the story of Beowulf, because this certain character was a hero. He constantly was helping others through out the story even when he should have helped his self first. He found his strength and worked hard to succeed. My sister is a selfless person and is constantly doing tasks for others just like Beowulf.


Connection: My sister reminds me of this quote because she is always pushing her self even through the hardest times. Even when she thinks she has no strength she finds the courage to keep going. Her actions motivate me everyday to overcome specific obstacles.

Part 3:

Topics: Bravery, epic, and deadly battle

Tangled:
" Tangled" the movie is about a man named Flynn Rider and a woman named Rapunzel. Flynn stole an item and Rapunzel has been locked up in a castle forever because of her magical hair and her evil mother wants to protect from the outside world because she stole her. Flynn rider steals an item and finds the castle that Rapunzel is at. No one is there except for Rapunzel. Rapunzel finds Flynn and refuses to let him go unless he takes her to go see the Lanterns. They go on a exciting adventure as there both hiding from different individuals. They overcome different obstacles on there journey together.

Bravery:
Both Rapunzel and Beowulf are extremely brave because they go through certain obstacles throughout there journeys. They achieve there goals as well.

Epic: Rapunzel and Beowulf were also epic heroes because they go through a lot. She experiences many problems but at the end of the film she is a lot stronger as a person. She is changed into such a different person. Before she was scared about leaving the the castle and had fears about the real world but she overcame all the worries as she experienced it and does not worry about it anymore. Beowulf Fought a lot and was changed because of his actions.

Deadly Battle: There is not a deadly battle in the movie but the main character may feel like she battled through a lot because she went through many different obstacles during the movies such as being locked up, not seeing the real world, and accomplishing her goals. But Beowulf went through deadly fights throughout the story.
