    “Beowulf” is an epic poem about Hrothgar’s castle in Denmark that is harassed by a monster Grendel for over 12 years Beowulf a Geat hears about this and decides he is going to be the hero and fight Grendel He sails across the sea and gets to Denmark with 14 other Geats Since Grendel does not use any weapons Beowulf decides to fight him with his bare hands as well Beowulf goes into the battle with confidence In the end he rips off Grendel’s arm Grendel then flees to his lair and soon dies there Beowulf hung Grendel’s arm over the rafters to signify his victory The next night though Grendel’s mother goes to the castle kills many men and take back Grendel’s arm Beowulf would not stand for this and decides he is going to go to the monster’s lair and fight Grendel’s mother He floats down to the lair and fights a rough battle but comes out with a victory After he wins he goes to Grendel’s body and cuts off his head Year’s later after Beowulf was recognized as a true hero and named King of Sweden there was a Dragon that was guarding a lot of gold that Beowulf wanted He fought The Dragon for the Gold but had a rough fight None of Beowulf’s soldiers liked his greed so they left him all but Wiglaf stuck by his side and pretty much won the battle for him Beowulf later died but was still remembered as a hero even though he was very greedy Beowulf in the beginning was a very good person who fought for good After he had won two victories and received gold as his earnings he had became very greedy which led him to the fight with The Dragon Beowulf though was remembered as a true hero who gave many epic boasts Grendel is the first monster in the story who bothered the people of Herot because of the many celebrations they had and he did not want to see them happy He would scoop up 30 men in one hand and kill all of them each night Grendel’s Mother is the second monster in the story She was very protective over her son and killed the men because they had killed her son In other words her fight was for revenge Wiglaf is the last hero in the story who helps Beowulf defeat The Dragon He is courageous and has a good heart throughout his entire part of the story The setting impacted the story greatly In the first two battles it took place in Herot a place away from home for Beowulf which then made him a foreign hero known everywhere In the end it took place back in Sweden which shows that Beowulf’s age affected him and he could not even fight and win for his own country The theme for this story is to definitely not be greedy because otherwise Karma will come and get you back Beowulf showed a lot of greed in the end and in the end he couldn’t even fight his own battle I thought this is a good class book to read It taught me a lot about Anglo Saxon views Therefore I recommend it for us seniors

    Though I miss some of the language of the epic—Seamus Heaney’s translation in particular—this graphic novel captures the essence of Beowulf I’m hoping to use it in my British Lit class to help students get into the story

    Now Beowulf is a book I could get into This is a book that had a lot of fighting and a lot of adventures This is the kind of book I enjoy because as a boy I was always fascinated by myths and fairy talesBeowulf is an epic poem about a man from Sweden who travels to Denmark so he can rid the land of an evil monster named Grendel Grendel was a monster that terrorized the castle named Heorot After this battle Beowulf fights Grendel’s mother after she murders Hrothgar's adviser Aeschere He kills her with a sword made by giants After these events Hrothgar is pleased and gives him a lot of treasure Beowulf says his goodbyes and returns to the Geats After a couple of years Beowulf is brought up to the throne after the heir of Hygelac dies Not too long after a dragon appears Beowulf dies fighting the dragon with his assistant Wiglaf and succeeds but with heavy casualties dies in battle Before Beowulf fights each creature he boasts about how he will be victorious Although throughout the book he changes from being noble and true to corrupt and greedyThe main characters in this epic poem are Beowulf Hrothgar Wiglaf Grendel and Grendel’s mother In the book Beowulf is the protagonist in the poem and is said to have supernatural strength and he uses this in some parts of the book Hrothgar is the king that rules over the land of Denmark Wiglaf is a man who follows Beowulf in his old age Grendel is a beast that attacked the castle and slaughtered many Grendel's mother is Grendel's mother This epic poem takes place in 6th century Denmark King Hrothgar rules the Danes and the people of Denmark He lives in a castle called Herot that is being tormented by a monster called Grendel This monster leaves Herot and returns to his swamp Herot is in a state of turmoil and remains in this state for twelve winters until Beowulf comes and rids the land of Grendel and then soon after Grendel’s mother The author does a great job of saying how Beowulf uses supernatural strength and divine intervention to his advantageThe author has a very good way of painting a picture in your mind on what is happening whether it is a battle or a beautiful landscapeThe main message of this poem is to do things for the right reasons and be thankful for what you have I would recommend this book to people in high school and mostly boys because of the actionpeople with a love and passion for adventure and people who are interested in medieval myths would enjoy this book

    121008 We recently read Beowulf in class and to help understand I wanted to read the comic book It was entertaining with all the details of the real story and awesome pictures to help you visualize what's going on I'm not completely finished with it yet but so far it's really helped me grasp the story better3909This retelling of the epic poem Beowulf gives you of an idea of the story with graphic pictures and easy to understand text Based like a comic I was able to better grasp the concept of this in depth classic story The movie blew me away and made me want to read the book but I found out that some major details and events had been misconstrued Stefan Petrucha is the author of many books graphic novels and tv series I truly think that his understanding to make the poem easier and yet lively has spoken to many teens and young adults alike This adaption does indeed tell the story of Beowulf a decorated solider that travels far and wide to defeat monsters and armies Upon hearing about the trouble that Danish king Hrothgar was having in his meade hall Heorot with the monster Grendel a young and restless Beowulf travels to erase the kings fears With his uniue fighting style Beowulf soon defeats Grendel and his hellion mother Beowulf is a man's man Being blessed by a king and soon becoming king of the Geats himself he is dubbed invincible He would come to find 50 years later that another evil could no longer be kept at bay A dragon awakened by a theif terrorizes his kingdom burning down Beowulf's home The uestion presents itself will Beowulf make it through this final battle at the peak of his life? I thought the telling of this graphic novel was awesome and hope to read some of Petrucha's work again soon

    One of my favorite type of books are books that have a sense of adventure When I read a book with a good sense of adventure I feel like drawing either a scene from the book or something related to a book When I was younger about five years old I would even go outside and pretend to be the main character if I read a book or watched a movie like that Beowulf is one of those types of books Beowulf is written by Stefan Petrucha and Kody Chamberlain The book starts out by introducing a monster called Grendel It explains how the monster is terrorizing towns and how those town become the monster’s meal Then it introduces the main character Beowulf He volunteers to slay the Grendel WITHOUT weapons of any kind Later to protect his kingdom he must slay a dragon I think that Stefan and Kody do a good job on adding onomatopoeia to the pictures On page 42 when the creature gets shot with an arrow and has “shump” under the picture I could really hear the arrow passing through the creature But I noticed that there isn't a lot of onomatopoeia and there are a lot of places where onomatopoeia could be used For example when Beowulf decapitaded the Grendel there could have been a nice “swish” the sound of the sword swinging The pictures on every page are very detailed and show the progression of the book For example when Beowulf gets attacked by eels there are multiple pictures to show Beowulf struggling to get his freedom Someone who would like this book would be the average comic book reader someone who likes fantasy and someone who likes the thrill adventure

    Reviewed by JodiG for TeensReadToocomBased on the classic story this graphic novel tells the tale of Beowulf an epic hero who bravely faces the most fearsome creatures In the kingdom of Hrothgar men are being slaughtered by a godless creature Grendel has proven that he cannot be defeated even by the king's greatest warriors He comes in the night and feeds on the men After twelve years Beowulf comes to the aid of Hrothgar He defeats Grendel and earns himself fame But his battle is far from over for another monster has come to avenge Grendel his mother BEOWULF is one of the most popular tales of heroism being passed from generation to generation Here it is presented in stark simplicity The tale of brutal danger and the raw battles for life are coupled with sharp dark images The effect is a novel that is as ominous as the story itself

    I think the following recurring line best represents this book All things born to live on this earth must die no matter how they struggle The light from even the greatest being dims in time It is so for each and every man and woman And also for heroes and monsters Great writing mini lesson opportunity along with several strong metaphors throughtout the textThe words and graphics in this graphic novel work together seamlessly to make a classic tale come alive for the reader I'd highly recommend this version as a prelude to the classical work it was simply captivating
