Please check this paragraph .

Beowulf possesses all of these essentials charterstic throughout the poem which prove him an epic hero of the poem. Beowulf is a young adventure who takes risks of his life for glory achievement. He crosses the sea, defeats ungodly beasts in bloody combat, wins a foreign ally for his king and earns respect from his native people. Eventually he becomes king himself, rules in relative peace and wisdom, and then is killed in a fight with a dragon.
