Today, we read turned in the Oedipus essay redoes, and had a quiz over Beowulf 1-4.
Homework: read Man Booker Prize, pg. 230, and work on presentation container.
Things to listen for:
-characteristics of epic poems and epic heroes
-impressions of Beowulf, Hrothgar, and Grendel
-Good vs. evil
We read 5-11 for Beowulf, and talked about some of the characters. We were introduced to Grendel, the monster that swipes people and murders them. We were also introduced to Beowulf, and he is described as the strongest man that has ever walked the Earth. We were not able to watch the scenes in the movie, but are looking at watching them either Wednesday or Friday.
