Beowulf is our first great epic. It is an epitomized history of the life of the Teutonic races. It brings vividly before us our forefathers of pre-Alfredian eras, in their love of war, of sea, and of adventure.
Reading the epic poem of Beowulf gives us a glimpse into the lives of our oldest English-speaking ancestors.
