Handout - Structure of Beowulf (Times)

Please help us improve with this one minute survey (opens in a new tab)

A handout breaking Beowulf down into a series of 'times' - i) the distant past; ii) just before the fight with Grendel (e.g. 20-50 years); iii) Danish episodes; iv) intervening period (50 years); v) time of Dragon, and future. The handout breaks the fits down into meaningful sections to show how the poet moves back and forth between these time periods.
