Beowulf In the Path of Exile A truly noble warrior the mightiest man on earth a high-bourne and powerful person leads his men through great battles The distinguished one the one who helps and counsels he is valiant and venturesome showing extreme bravery and courage He is the hero he is the good Grim powerful demons of destruction prowl through the dark haunting the marshes These God- cursed brutes rule in defiance gruesomely slaughter mangle and murder yet show no remorse They are the enemy they are the evil There is an important connection between the enemy and the hero without this connection the hero is never defined The evil enemy has essential characteristics which lead to Beowulf as a hero Not only do the Dane Geat and readers see him as a hero but most crucially he sees himself as a hero I will argue the necessity of having an enemy in comprehension of evil versus good and how there must in fact be some sort of relationship between Beowulf and his enemies Beowulfs death at the hands of the enemy fully defines Beowulf as a hero and because of this he is forever remembered in history Evil actions of the enemy are truly needed in each and every context in which a hero is present In this poem this author wants us to understand and grasp the enemy from the very beginning These creatures dark death shadows are against all they are a threat a danger to all people and cause atrocious hurt terror turmoil and fear These enemies help to define the hero a person worthy of respect he is alert and preforms to the utter most completing heroic feats with bravery strength and courage Beowulf wants to help the Danes and also prove to himself that like his father Ecgtheow he too can defeat the enemy I meant to preform to the uttermost what your people wanted or perish in
