Wield Words Well
By Eli Gemmill (12th grade)
Undeniably, Beowulf should be read by modern readers as it shows the benefits of bravery, the dangers of pridefulness, and illustrates the culture of Medieval Europe. The themes this epic illustrates are as relevant as ever, and this is the reason why it should be read by all people who struggle with the same ageless issues that people dealt with even in Medieval times.
