Examples Of Anglo Saxon Loyalty In Beowulf

Satisfactory Essays
I am going to use this source to prove that the Anglo Saxons valued loyalty because in the story Beowulf, loyalty was shown time and time again above all else. When Beowulf began to fight Grendel, the unmatched monster, following the killing of one of his men the rest showed their loyalty and rather than fleeing stood ready for a fight. Another example of how valued loyalty was in this community would be Wiglaf. He was the only warrior to return and aid his King against the dragon, and therefore rewarded with the utmost respect in the Anglo-Saxon community, unlike the deserters who were scolded for their actions.
