Beowulf Identity Quotes
How we cite our quotes:
"Order my troop to construct a barrow on a headland on the coast, after my pyre has cooled. It will loom on the horizon at Hronesness and be a reminder among my people – so that in coming times crews under sail will call it Beowulf's Barrow, as they steer ships across the wide and shrouded waters." (2802-2808)
The final measure of Beowulf's successful establishment of an identity as a warrior and a king is his memorial, Beowulf's Barrow.
