Beowulf Discussion Questions

What are the heroic virtues the poem celebrates? What other virtues seem important, in this world? (for Wealtheow, for example, or the warrior comrades who are not necessarily big named heroes like Beowulf?)

There are generally four heroic virtues celebrated in Beowulf. They are very Anglo Saxon traits that include loyalty, generosity, brotherly love, and heroism. I think lesser-known warriors still must exhibit traits like loyalty and respect for the Gods.
