its a poem called beowulf its like old and thats why its important. its not that good or anything but its old so thats why they make us read it in school.
heres the main dude his names beowulf. hes super strong and stuff but really prideful (thats his FATAL FLAW *VOCABULARY WORD DROP WEEWOOWEEWOO*)
pretty ugly imo
heres the other main dude sort of. his names hrothgar and hes the king of the ppl that beowulf has to help out.
the thing beowulf has to save hrothgars dudes from is this giant thing called grendel. hesl ike the descendant of cain which makes him evil automatically i guess (pretty bullshit). his deal is he goes into hrothgars mead hall at night and eats a couple of his finest most beloved warriors etc etc. i dunno why they dont just stop going to the mead hall but w/e i didnt write the poem
then when beowulf rips his arm off he dies and his mom gets super pissed so beowulf has to fight his mom at the bottom of the ocean and he magically can breathe because of his faith in god or something. heres a picture of angelina jolie
then he fights a dragon but dude i think you have probably seen enough dragons in your life to imagine one so im not going to post a pic. but yeah he fights a dragon and dies spoiler alert he dies yeah. but by that time hes like 10000 years old and has been the king for super long and ppl were probably tired of him boasting about how he killed angelina jolie once so it works out
