Overall Impression of "Beowulf"
I'm curious as to what you're impressions of "Beowulf" were. I didn't enjoy it all that much, but I'm interested to know why you liked it (if any of you did). The character of Beowulf seemed a little too cocky and self-assured to me. Maybe that was valued in their culture, but I find it very off-putting. Beowulf can be compared to Aragorn because they are both good fighters and become kings, but Aragorn is much more likable because he is so humble. Does this make Aragorn a better king than Beowulf?
