Historical background[ edit ] Approximate central regions of tribes mentioned in Beowulf, with the location of the Angles in Angeln. The events in the poem take place over most of the sixth century, after the Anglo-Saxons had started migrating to England and before the beginning of the seventh century, a time when the Anglo-Saxons were either newly arrived or were still in close contact with their Germanic kinsmen in Northern Germany and southern Scandinavia.
The poem may have been brought to England by people of Geatish origins. Though Beowulf himself is not mentioned in any other Anglo-Saxon manuscript,  scholars generally agree that many of the other figures referred to in Beowulf also appear in Scandinavian sources.
Specific works are designated in the following section. In Denmark, recent archaeological excavations at Lejrewhere Scandinavian tradition located the seat of the Scyldings, i. Eadgils was buried at Uppsala according to Snorri Sturluson.
When the western mound to the left in the photo was excavated inthe finds showed that a powerful man was buried in a large barrow, c.
The eastern mound was excavated inand contained the remains of a woman, or a woman and a young man. The middle barrow has not been excavated. Later in his life, Beowulf becomes king of the Geats, and finds his realm terrorized by a dragonsome of whose treasure had been stolen from his hoard in a burial mound.
He attacks the dragon with the help of his thegns or servants, but they do not succeed. Beowulf finally slays the dragon, but is mortally wounded in the struggle. He is cremated and a burial mound by the sea is erected in his honour.
Beowulf is considered an epic poem in that the main character is a hero who travels great distances to prove his strength at impossible odds against supernatural demons and beasts. The poem also begins in medias res or simply, "in the middle of things," which is a characteristic of the epics of antiquity.
An elaborate history of characters and their lineages is spoken of, as well as their interactions with each other, debts owed and repaid, and deeds of valour. The warriors form a kind of brotherhood linked by loyalty to their lord. What is unique about "Beowulf" is that the poem actually begins and ends with a funeral.
At the beginning of the poem, the king, hero, Shield Shiefson dies 26—45 and there is a huge funeral for him.
At the end of the poem when Beowulf dies, there is also a massive funeral for Beowulf — Grendel[ edit ] Beowulf begins with the story of Hrothgar, who constructed the great hall Heorot for himself and his warriors. In it, he, his wife Wealhtheowand his warriors spend their time singing and celebrating.
Grendel, a troll-like monster said to be descended from the biblical Cainis pained by the sounds of joy. Hrothgar and his people, helpless against Grendel, abandon Heorot.
Beowulf refuses to use any weapon because he holds himself to be the equal of Grendel. Earlier, after the award of treasure, The Geat had been given another lodging"; his assistance would be absent in this battle. Unfertha warrior who had doubted him and wishes to make amends, presents Beowulf with his sword Hrunting.
Beowulf, finding that Hrunting cannot harm his foe, puts it aside in fury. Beowulf swims back up to the rim of the pond where his men wait in growing despair.
The dragon[ edit ] Main article: The dragon Beowulf Beowulf face to face with the fire-breathing dragon Beowulf returns home and eventually becomes king of his own people.
When the dragon sees that the cup has been stolen, it leaves its cave in a rage, burning everything in sight. Beowulf and his warriors come to fight the dragon, but Beowulf tells his men that he will fight the dragon alone and that they should wait on the barrow.
Beowulf descends to do battle with the dragon, but finds himself outmatched. His men, upon seeing this and fearing for their lives, retreat into the woods. The two slay the dragon, but Beowulf is mortally wounded.Daniel P.
