Siegmund and Finn In the epic poem Beowulf there is a celebration of a great battle won by Beowulf During this celebration two stories are told One of Siegmund the mightiest warrior of them all Where we learn that if you are brave then you will be remembered The other of Finn an extremely foolish king Which teaches patience can truly pay off Siegmund was an ancient warrior who was extremely famous He was the strongest and bravest of all warriors Everyone knew his name and he lived a very rich life There were tales of giants wiped from the earth by Siegmunds might- and forever remembered fame that would last him beyond life and death 51 This shows just how famous he really was The point the story is trying to get across is that if you are brave and strong then you will be remembered Siegmund was extremely strong and could back himself up in any situation This story is relevant to Beowulf because it shows how famous Beowulf has become and how much more famous he can get He needs to continue his path to greatness by fighting any battle he can and bragging about it to anyone wholl listen The story of Finn begins when he starts a war that he cant finish Making a weak alliance he leaves his people in a foreign land with the Danes After a long winter the Danish king kills Finn and takes all of his riches and treasures He planned he waited wove plans and waited Then a Danish warrior dropped a sword in his lap a weapon Finn and his men remembered and feared and the time had come and Hengest rose hearing the Danes murmur and drove his new sword into Finns belly butchering that king under his own roof And the Danes rose their hearts full of Finns treachery and the misery hed brought them 59 This passage is training Beowulf
