My Multigenre Project
Beowulf & The Canterbury Tales
I'm a senior in Chillicothe High School and I'm doing a project on the Canterbury Tales and Beowulf. I write a ballad, draw a terrible picture, and also write a diary entry. My theme, which is mortality, is a part of every piece that I do. My theme is mortality. Mortality is throughout the entire poem. Grendel, a few idiots who think they can take on Death, and even the almighty Beowulf are all subjected to death, which is what mortality is. The lesson is that death is inevitable and no one, no matter how strong or arrogant, can escape it.
