Classics Summarized: Beowulf
 
10:53
Beowulf! The tale of the baddest Geat to ever Geat. Tolkien said that the Dragon in Beowulf is one of only two *true* dragons in all of literature - the other being Fafnir. The influence of both these dragons is very visible in a lot of our more modern fantasy: for instance, where Beowulf's Dragon inspired Smaug, o chiefest and greatest of calamities, Fafnir inspired C. S. Lewis to include that cursed bracelet thing that turned Eustace into a dragon in Voyage of the Dawn Treader. And I think we all know the badder of those two dragons, so I guess Tolkien - and, by extension, Beowulf - wins this round. Where was I? Right.

Beowulf Summary | Summary & Analysis of Beowulf (Grendel, Grendel's Mother, Dragon)
 
43:06
Beowulf Summary | Summary & Analysis of Beowulf (Grendel, Grendel's Mother, Dragon) Beowulf is an Old English epic poem consisting of 3182 alliterative lines. It may be the oldest surviving long poem in Old English and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Old English literature. A date of composition is a matter of contention among scholars; the only certain dating pertains to the manuscript, which was produced between 975 and 1025. The author was an anonymous Anglo-Saxon poet, referred to by scholars as the "Beowulf poet". The poem is set in Scandinavia. Beowulf, a hero of the Geats, comes to the aid of Hrothgar, the king of the Danes, whose mead hall in Heorot has been under attack by a monster known as Grendel. After Beowulf slays him, Grendel's mother attacks the hall and is then also defeated. Victorious, Beowulf goes home to Geatland (Götaland in modern Sweden) and later becomes king of the Geats. After a period of fifty years has passed, Beowulf defeats a dragon, but is fatally wounded in the battle. After his death, his attendants cremate his body and erect a tower on a headland in his memory. The full poem survives in the manuscript known as the Nowell Codex. It has no title in the original manuscript, but has become known by the name of the story's protagonist. In 1731, the manuscript was badly damaged by a fire that swept through Ashburnham House in London that had a collection of medieval manuscripts assembled by Sir Robert Bruce Cotton. The Nowell Codex is currently housed in the British Library. ...............................................................................

Epic Literature and Beowulf
 
09:45
Don't forget to hit the Like and Subscribe videos to make sure you receive notifications about upcoming Literature, Grammar, Reading, Writing, and World History lessons from MrBrayman.Info. In this lesson, we'll look at the literary and cultural background of Bewulf as well as features of epic literature. This is intended as preparation for the reading of Beowulf in class. Below is the outline of the slides used in the lesson: Epic Literature and Beowulf Characteristics of Epic Literature The Epic Hero represents the culture's values Often, those values are seen in the character's deeds and long speeches Long speeches serve as histories and genealogies Characteristics of Epic Literature En Media Res, the action starts in the middle of the plot, near the climax; Beowulf somewhat does this Epithets—characters are often referred to by a unique characteristic or as the "son of" Characteristics of Epic Literature Composed in narrative verse (Poetry!)—these were pre-literate societies Long, showing how the hero or culture develop over time Common throughout the world Epic Literature Other well-known epics: The Odyssey The Iliad Gilgamesh The Ramayana Background of Beowulf The story opens en media res when the monster Grendel has been attacking the Danes' mead hall, Herot We don't know why, but because he is said to be related to the Biblical figure Cain (the first murderer), we know he's evil Background of Beowulf The King of the Danes, Hrothgar, has been unable to stop Grendel Grendel has been attacking Herot for 12 years Grendel cannot be hurt by the Danes' weapons (perhaps because of the "Mark of Cain?") Background of Beowulf Beowulf, a young thane of the Geats (Swedish tribe) hears of Hrothgar's misfortune Like any young, epic hero, he sets out to make a name for himself... Cultural Background of Beowulf Originally an oral Epic by the pagan Anglo-Saxons Written down by Christian monks sometime in the 900s or early 1000s Has Christian elements and themes Cultural Background of Beowulf Beowulf is the great pagan war hero and the self-sacrificing Christ of his people Grendel is a typical monster but with this Cain business Fine example of "cross-over" literature from the period of Christian expansion throughout Europe Cultural Background of Beowulf Keep in mind that Beowulf represents a traditional European Christian worldview—it doesn't matter why something is evil, and you don't try to understand it; you just kill it
