The Courage, Strength, and Integrity of Beowulf


        "He who had come to them from across the sea, bold and strong minded,

had driven affliction off, purged Herot clean."  Beowulf has traveled a great

distance to help people in need.  Even though Beowulf is a fictional character,

he is clearly the heroic symbol needed by the people of the chaotic Middle Ages

with his extraordinary characteristics of  courage, strength, and integrity.


      To be a hero a person needs to be admired for courage, strength, and

integrity.  A hero is any person admired for courage.  A person with courage can

easily take on any task.  Courage is not the absence of  fear but rather the

know-how to control it.  To be a hero is also one that is strong.  To be strong

a person needs not only brawn, but the knowledge to use it.  Strength without

direction is like trying to hit a cloud with a bow and arrow.  A hero is also

anyone that posses integrity.  With integrity a hero knows how to do without a

doubt what is right.  A person with integrity is unimpaired, so he is able to

accomplish the task at hand.  A person who upholds these qualities and more is

truly a hero.


      Beowulf, a hero for heroes overcomes the hideous creature Grendle, in

order to aid the Danes, whom are in the need of aid. Beowulf sits awake in

uncertainty of what comes in the depths of the everlasting night.  This shows

that Beowulf has an uncanny amount of courage.  He, as any human in this

predicament is obviously full of fear, but with courage he is able to control

this fear.  As the infamous Grendle rushes towards Beowulf with great might, the

mighty Beowulf catches the viscous monsters claw and tears the whole limb from

its now empty socket. This definately shows a great amount of strength. To have

such great power to pull an arm from its socket he must be strong.  Beowulf

traverses a great distance in order to help a foreign people whom are in the

need of aid.  By helping the Danes, Beowulf shows that he posses an elevated

amount of integrity.  Beowulf is determined to accomplish a task, and he does it

like no one else could without haste.  Beowulf, the mightiest of all in this

world, ideally portrays the innate qualities of a hero, and surpasses them with

great length.


      Beowulf came, he saw, he conquered and destroyed the vile Grendle.

Herot is once again a joyful place.  With courage, strength, and integrity the

glorious Beowulf  accomplishes everything and more to become a hero that will

never be forgotten.
