Beowulf A new Rhyme
Monday, 1 December 2003
Literally elements
The alliteration is "In the darkness, of the darkest dark place" because the word dark is written 3 times.


"Snap!" is the onomatopoeia.


The similies are "Like a bear" and "like a sword through his heart".



The main character is Beowulf, and is also the protagonist.



The arch-enemy is Grendel because he is in conflict with Beowulf, the protagonist.


The imageries are "the victors tasted the delicious turkey", "The chewing sounded like a herd of wild animals" and "In the hall, they could smell the drunk and joyful atmosphere"becaus those imageries permit the reader to have an idea, image of whats going on.



In this poem, the theme (the battle of good versus evil) is expressed and is consistent with Nye's epic because it is expressed and consistent with Nye's epic.



The symbols are "the white horse with the black mane" and "He thought of Grendel a beautiful beast" because everything is a mixture of good and evil.



The direct characterization is "Beowulf was short and wise" because it describes Beowulf.

The indirect characterization is "Beowulf screamed for Grendel" because it describes the courage of beowulf.



In this poem, it is an all-knowing person point of view because we know what each character is thinking.



The setting is "In the land of the Danes, After the wars and pain". It describes the time and place.



The vocabulary words are "fen", "pandemonium", "mortal", "corselet" and "horizon".


The explanation of the conflict is "The battle in this part between Grendel and Beowulf generated lots of hype, proving that the conflict in this part was an external type" because they ar fighting each other.



"Beowulf : A New Rhyme" is the title of the poem because we dont want to put the same as the storys.

A new rhyme


In the land of the Danes,

After the wars and pain,

Beowulf arrived riding his white horse with the black mane

In the darkness, of the darkest dark place

Emerged Grendle’s face

The creatures ran in all directions

Landing in the fen’s many sections

Impatient, Beowulf screamed for Grendel

It came; the hall was full of evil

Grendel’s frustration took over

Moreover his pandemonium of pain

Like a bear, Beowulf held the monster

His light, it hurt the murderer

It hurt him like a sword thru his heart

Snap! Went Grendel’s arm

Proving his harm

Everybody was happy

But Unferth was angry

He thought of Grendel a beautiful beast

During the celebration and the feast

During the meal, the victors tasted the delicious turkey

And the scrumptious jerky

The chewing sounded like a herd of wild animals

In the hall, they could smell the drunk and joyful atmosphere

Beowulf was short and wise

Although he had bad eyes

With all this greatness Beowulf was still a mortal

But some still considered him an immortal

The battle in this part between Grendel and Beowulf generated lots of hype

Proving that the conflict in this part was an external type

Beowulf’s reward from Wealhtheow was a golden corselet

Just as the light-struck the horizon marking dawn

Then another battle was about to begin

And it was no time to lower the chin
