This statement provides more information on Beowulf’s family history. Beowulf’s family history possibly had an effect on his braveness and eagerness to earn power and fame by taking on various battles throughout the text. Beowulf begins with the narrator telling the story of Shield Sheafson leading up to his funeral, which in my opinion foreshadows Beowulf’s funeral at the end of the poem.

Brown’s novel is assumed to be based on the unconfirmed rumors that Thomas Jefferson fathered a child with one of his slaves, Sally Hemmings (Kirkpatrick, 2004). These rumors were very relevant at the time that Brown wrote his novel. It seems that Brown was even ahead of his time in questioning the actions of President Jefferson because the DNA confirmation behind these rumors was not provided until years later. One of the strong motifs throughout this novel is hypocrisy. The fact that Thomas Jefferson, one of the writers of the Declaration of Independence, who fights for freedom and equality for all, would allow his biological daughter to be put up and sold at auction just shows the great deal of hypocrisy during the time of slavery.
