Those that spoke of MLK has agreed that life in the US would have been different if he wasn’t apart of history. There are some similarities and some differences between the two. Beowulf and MLK were similar because neither one of there reasoning for fighting weren’t for fame/selfishness. Beowulf fought when his men were under attack. For example, he only fought the monster, Grendel, because the monster was killing all the men.
II. Beowulf fights Grendel. Beowulf shows goodness and bravery volunteering to stand up to the Grendel that has been eating the people of Herot. "I have heard moreover that the monster scorns in his reckless way to use weapons; therefore, to heighten Hygelac's fame and gladden his heart, I hereby renounce sword and the shelter of the broad shield, the heavy war-board: hand-to-hand is how it will be, a life-and-death fight with the fiend." (433-440) It shows that Beowulf is fair because he fights Grendel with out any weapons.
The fatal flaw is often the most important convention in any tragic hero story; Tony’s flaw is his complex and volatile personality. On one hand, he can be very violent at times, and he swears and insults people liberally. On the other hand he has his virtues which he sticks to without compromise. These virtues eventually lead him to his death (he killed the assassin to prevent him from detonating the bomb as the target’s car also had his children in it). Tony’s hubris is also heavily shown in this scene.
The stranger threw aside his cloak to reveal well-worn black plate armor and a massive warhammer. After a short but brutal contest, Thrall managed to disarm his foe, but was prevented from throttling the stranger by some of his clan. It was then the stranger revealed himself as Orgrim Doomhammer, the Warchief of the Horde. Doomhammer had been contacted by Drek'Thar about the return of the son of Durotan. The Warchief decided to provoke Thrall into a fight to see if Drek'Thar's praise was deserved, and it was.
He took one swipe with his iron sword, penetrating my skin and drawing blood. I leaped with pain and spouted murderous flames, spreading them everywhere. There was little fight left in him. He knew his life was coming to an end, yet foolishly resisted. He could not give up.
The main cause to the battle was that Grendel was terrorizing and killing every one of the Danes, Grendel just would not leave the king alone. The battle had taken place in the land far from ours where the king laid his head at night; the castle was where everything happened. Grendel came at me with all his might we just fought and fought then he came at me again I took his hand and broke a finger then I guess that wasn’t enough so then I broke his arm. After I broke his arm he ran off to cry and die alone because I defeated him. The defeat of Grendel was basically everything to the king; Hrothgar had lost his honor, his kingdom, and his faith so when I came back to him with Grendel’s arm to hang to say he is dead was the priceless moment of happiness for the king and
From the moment he holds a grip of Grendel’s arm, the monster was terrified. Grendel was trying to swing Beowulf off his arm, hitting himself against the wall’s Herot. Beowulf kept making his grip stronger, to not let him escape. As Grendel twisted from pain, his shoulder snapped, muscle and bone splinted. Grendel ran as the second he was free, but that was the end of him bleeding to his death.
(Golding 69) Though he chant may have been born out of their frustration of constantly being eluded by the swine and finally being successful, as time goes on the chant becomes more of tradition when they take an animal’s life. Eventually, everyone begins to indulge in this vicious call for murder. Further into the story, there are more evident signs that the group is slowly descending into violence. Roger, a rather
Jack never once asked Piggy for his ‘specs’ and every time had attempted and succeeded in taking them. Another example is when Jack and his tribe of savages hunt down Ralph without remorse or a second thought to their actions. They hunt him because Jack wanted him out of the way so he himself could become chief, Roger also said “See? I told you-he’s dangerous” (216). Ralph was only fighting back in self-defence but also had happened to injure one of the savages in his attempts to elude the boys.
Beowulf firsts shows this when he defeats Grendel in Herot, for the ring-giver Hrothgar in behalf of his king Higlac. Beowulf had killed Grendel with his bare hands in order to show his true strength. Beowulf exhibits his superhuman strength also when he kills Grendel’s mother with “A heavy sword/ Hammered by giants.” During this fight Beowulf also showed another superhuman quality of courage. Beowulf showed his superhuman courage when he
