I need to explain Beowulf's speech lines 365-428. topic audience and tone of the speech.
British Lit. -
I don't have a copy of Beowulf anymore, so I can't find this speech by line numbers.
Please try these things:
1. Summarize the speech.
2. Figure out who his audience is (to whom was he speaking).
3. Figure out his own attitude toward the topic of his speech; that is his tone.
