Nick Poggetti Beowulf Discussion Questions 1. How is Beowulf (the poem) structured? How does this structure reflect the cultural climate in which it was created? 2. What are the most important values/characteristics of society in Beowulf’s world? How does this compare/contrast with the Germanic society that you have read about? The most important characteristics in Beowulf’s society are bravery and honor. This is very similar to the Germanic tribes we have read about. For instance when Beowulf is fighting the dragon his one comrade stays and risks his life. It was unheard of to flee in the Germanic tribes, and protecting your leader was the most important thing. This one man protected and fought with Beowulf until they were victorious. 3. What kind of leader is Beowulf? What are the characteristics that make him a good/poor leader/ruler? Beowulf is a strong and courageous leader that everyone respects and looks up to.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
