Some readers view Beowulf as a boastful glory seeker. Other readers view Beowulf as a noble, selfless man. Based on your reading of the excerpts, discuss each point of view in a well structured paragraph. You will have two separate paragraphs -- one for Beowulf as a boastful glory seeker and one for Beowulf as a noble selfless man. Each paragraph must contain supporting evidence from the poem in the form of one or two brief quotations.
