Heroism of Beowulf
Beowulf was written in the eighth century by an unknown author. The story is centered on
Beowulf, the main character, who goes to Denmark to offer his assistance in fighting off, Grendel,
the monster who has been haunting them. Beowulf most definitely proves to be a hero. His
heroism is exemplified first when he kills Grendel, then when he kills Grendelís mother, and finally
when he kills the dragon, called Worm.

scared of dying and was glad the worm was dead.
In conclusion by definition a hero is willing to do many things. For example he is willing to
risk his own life for the good of others, faces danger and does not run away from it, and lastly
pursues the danger until it is conquered. Every fight that Beowulf fought showed him doing all
three of the characteristics a hero consists of.
