Our first two days we covered the history of the Danes starting with Shield Shiefson to the current King Hrothgar. We also looked at the discovery of Grendel, his lineage back to Cain, as well as his initial attack on Heorot. We left off today discussing Beowulf’s arrival on the Danish shore.

Keep track of the motifs we’ve been introduced to so far: Good vs Evil, Heaven vs Hell, and Light vs Dark.

Please continue to look at your study guide to follow along.
