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.

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?
