A quick story of where in the poem "Beowulf," Beowulf was shown crossing the first threshold in the hero's journey
Beowulf: Crossing the First Threshold
Beowulf is my name... (343-347)
They had seen me boltered in blood of enemies when I battled and bound five beasts...(419-424)
I meant to perform to the uttermost what your people wanted or perish in the attempt, in the fiend's clutches. And I shall fulfill that purpose... (634-638)
Now I mean to be a match for Grendel, settle the outcome in single combat. (425-426)
But when dawn broke and day crept in over each empty, blood shattered bench... (484-488)
No weapons, therefore, for either this night: unarmed he shall face me if face me he dares. (683-686)
