Beowulf's heroic characteristics
Note: Hygelac is King of the Geats during the story
"In his day, my father was a famous man, a noble warrior-lord name Ecgtheow."
"I am Hygelac's kinsman" and "owe allegiance" to him."
"It occurred, my sword had killed nine sea-monsters. Such night-dangers and hard ordeals I have never heard of... But worn out as I was, I survived."
"[Grendel] discovered himself in a handgrip harder than anything he had ever encountered in any man... Every bone is his body quailed and recoiled, but he could not escape."
