Homework Help: English Literature

Posted by Joshua on Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at 9:43pm.

Unferth accuses Beowulf of "wantonly tempting the waves" and risking his life for a "silly boast." Given what Beowulf and the narrator say about Unferth, how is Unferth's comment a reflection back on himself? How does it apply when we think about Grendel? Consider Hrothgar's comments on his men (lines 363-371). Why is it important for him to disparage on Beowulf's actions as being foolhardy?
