Sample text

Having addressed the issue, Beowulf calmly but strongly counters Unferth’s factual assertions. He concedes that, as boys will do (at least boys in Geatland), he and Breca exchanged boasts and entered into a dangerous swimming contest on the open sea. They wore body armor for protection, and each carried a sword. They swam together five nights, not seven. Breca could not pull away, and Beowulf would not abandon the other boy. Rough seas finally drove them apart. Sea monsters attacked Beowulf and attempted to drag him down.

Queen Hygd offered Beowulf the throne after her husband (Hygelac) died, thinking that her young son (Heardred) was unable to protect the kingdom; Beowulf refused but served the young king faithfully. After Heardred’s death, Beowulf did become king and ruled his people well for 50 years. Fortunes, however, do change, as Hrothgar predicted. The dragon is the final test for Beowulf, a test of his wisdom as well as his courage. The problem starts when a fugitive, apparently a runaway slave, stumbles across the dragon’s treasure-trove.
