Beowulf, By Seamus Heaney

- In society, cruelty often leads to dehumanization, but it can also be the reaction to dehumanization. Perpetrators are either idolized or villainized, while victims tend to be blamed for the actions committed against them. In Beowulf, cruelty is used as a social crutch, as well as a symbol of humanity, or the lack thereof. Barbarity, and the intent behind it, is what makes the heroes and the villains one and the same in Seamus Heaney’s translation of Beowulf. Grendel’s alienation from society motivates his cruel behavior, but Beowulf’s idolization leads him to be revered for the same actions....   [tags: Beowulf, Hero, Social class, Grendel's mother]
