You will need to identify Beowulf's heroic traits, generalize from these traits a list of typical traits for heroes, use these traits to compare Beowulf with contemporary heroes, as well as describe your definition of a hero, in a well-written, grammatically correct AT LEAST TWO PAGE DOUBLE-SPACED paper. You will need to cover the following in your paper: • discuss Beowulf as a hero, drawing supporting details from the text (make sure to include at least 3 examples from the text PROPERLY CITED) • generalize from these details a list of traits that apply to most heroes (strength, wisdom, bravery, loyalty, etc) • use these generalized traits to compare Beowulf with contemporary ‘heroes’ (such as Batman, Iron Man, firemen, Superman, etc.) • determine what is your personal concept of hero We will be working on these papers in the lab for Friday and Monday. These papers are DUE by Tuesday, September 22nd. After this date, points will be taken off for being late.
