Homework Help: English-Beowulf

Posted by Audrey on Friday, August 31, 2007 at 1:04pm.

Who is Scyld? Where is he from? Where does he go? What does he do? Why does the poem begin here rather than with Hrothgar and Grendel?
Scyld id Beowulf's father. Scyld was a Danidh king from the Scandion Lands. Scyld leaves to protect Lord Frea where he dies. The people send him away on a boat, covering him with treasues. The story begins with Scyld to help explain the history of Beowulf and why Beowulf was a famous warrior.

Could someone please check my answer. I've had to read three different texts to get this answer!
