summary of lines 924-955 how does king recognize beowulf
Answers 1Add Yours
The king recognizes Beowulf as a hero, a great warrior, and a son.
Noblest of men, I will love you all my life,
Like a son. Hold hard to this new kinship,
In future. You shall not lack for worldly
Possessions, while I still hold the power.
I’ve often dowered lesser men with riches,
I’ve showered my gifts on worse fighters,
For far humbler things. You have ensured,
By your own deeds, that your fame will live
For ever and ever."
