Finally, Beowulf even manages to find courage greater than other men when he faces down a full-blown dragon in his old age in order to save his kingdom.

Emily Schwartz Mrs. Srinivasan English II Honors 14 October 2011 A Prevalent Leader In the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf, Beowulf, the epitome of heroism, proves himself a suitable opponent against the demon, Grendel. Beowulf characterizes fearlessness and strength when battling fearsome enemies. Beowulf, the heroic protagonist, enters the village and addresses Hrothgar, a king, and his people with noble confidence for the upcoming battle he wishes to fight in.
