lost confidence in himself. This proves to be true when the Frisian demands to see Beowulf and Beowulf tells the Frisian, “I died a long time ago.” This statement tell me that he lost respect and confidence in himself. If he was considered a hero by everyone and he knows he lied to them then it defeats his belief in heros. In the movie when Beowulf was young he seemed to be very attracted to the Queen however when he older we see that Beowulf has a love affair with his servant Ursula. It seems as if he doesn’t even know how to love, or that he’s being untrue to himself. I believe this is a character flaw he has from lying when he was young which in turn made him lose respect in himself. In the book Beowulf takes care of his kingdom well and when the dragon terrorizes his kingdom he bavely kills the dragon with the help of one of his comrades, however dying afterward. His final wishes were to have a great tower built in his honor. This in my opinion shows a flaw, because if he was truly noble and humble then he wouldn’t care to make sure his legend lives on. I shared with you some characteristics flaws that Beowulf has. He was noble hero but did not possess the strength to resist temptations. That’s alright though, because nobody is perfect.

    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.
