In rage and frustration Beowulf attacks her with his bare hands.

A major scholarly book has just been published which documents a gathering of prominent Anglo-Saxonists and scholars of oral poetry at the University of Western Michigan (Michigan/USA). Benjamin Bagby was a participant in that meeting, where he also performed his version of 'Beowulf'. The book includes essays on translating 'Beowulf', essays on performance (featuring a lengthy roundtable discussion with Bagby and various scholars), and reviews of Seamus Heaney's best-selling English translation of 'Beowulf.' There is also a CD with readings from 'Beowulf' by Bagby (in the original) and a variety of other readers in various languages.

This being the case, a superhero is nothing more then someone who is a hero, but not just that once and for that one person, but someone who helps many people, or leads them....

During his descent to her lair, Beowulf is attacked by Grendel'smother and dragged to her cave.

Why is Beowulf considered a hero?

Yet, the epic of Beowulf has stayed as one of the premiere examples of a heroic epic.

A hero not only needs to be physically outstanding, but he also needs to have integrity, moral values and needs to act without thinking in his own benefit.

On 8 and 9 February 2013 Benjamin Bagby participated in a symposium: "Mündlichkeit und Schriftlichkeit im Wandel der Wissenschaftsdiskurse" at the University of Rostock / Hochschule für Musik in Rostock, Germany. He spoke about the his reconstruction of 'Beowulf' and gave examples of alternative versions of the same sections.

This is only a mere example of why Beowulf is a hero.

Both Oedipus and Othello are distinguished by nobility: Oedipus by birth and deed and Othello by a distinguished career. Oedipus is the son of King Laius and Jocasta his wife, the king and queen of Thebes. Because of an oracle prophesying that King Laius will be murdered by his son, Oedipus is left to die in "the mountains where Cithaeron is"(1472). He is then rescued by a shepherd and raised by "Polybus. . . king of Corinth/and Merope, the Dorian" (834-35). Not only is Oedipus noble in his birth and upbringing, he is also noble in deed. Upon coming to Thebes as a young man, Oedipus answers the riddle of the Sphinx, who is terrorizing the citizens, and rids the city of this monster. In turn he is made King of Thebes and marries, unknowingly, his mother, the queen. Othello, on the other hand, is noble only by deed. He is a Moor and a barbarian by Venetian customs. He is an outsider, yet he is accepted by the Venetian people because of his distinguished career as general of the Venetian army. In defense of his lack of noble heritage, Othello asserts: "I fetch my life and being / From men of royal siege" (1.2.20-21). It is his rank that makes him noble. His contemporaries also praise him as "brave Othello" (2.1.37), and they declare that he "commands / Like a full soldier" (2.1.35-36). Oedipus and Othello have the nobility that a true tragic hero must have, yet this nobility is only the armor that covers the true weakness that lies within each man.

With her dagger she desperately tries to kill Beowulf,but his armor protects him from her attacks.

The poem ends with Beowulf’s final deed of defeating a dragon that was plaguing his own land, but with the defeat of the dragon also comes the death of Beowulf.

Beowulf is called upon again to defeat this monster.


Beowulf, the main character, is an ideal king and archetypal warrior.

Beowulf is presented as a valiant hero, slaying beasts with his mighty strength and demonstrating the importance of the balance between wisdom and strength, but as the story unfolds Beowulf slowly loses his vita...

A dragon attacks Beowulf’s kingdom and his terrorizing his people.

The ancient blade broke, bit into The monster’s skin, drew blood, but cracked And failed him before it went deep enough.” Beowulf finds himself in defeat for the first time.

Beowulf shows physical strength in the story by defeating Grendel.

Heroes were originally personified as being an individual who were not bound by limitations, as well as demonstrating an archetypical sense of moral judgment.

In line 219 of Grendel’s mother, it tells how Beowulf killed her.

Both the characters Beowulf and Grendel represent aspects of both good and evil, Christianity and Paganism, and what occurs when they collide with one another.

This is not what makes him a hero.

Many of us believe that “Classic superheroes stories are wildly fun, suspenseful and exciting” (Tom and Matt Morris) forgetting the idea of what really makes a hero.

However this term does not do Beowulf justice.
