pyre. The wielder of wonder Da lui poi nacque un erede, un figlio nelle sue stanze, che il cielo ha mandato per favorire il popolo, sentendo il loro dolore che prima non avevano un conte come conducente da così tanto tempo; il Signore lo ha dotato (epiteto), Portatore di Meraviglie, famoso in tutto il mondo. Famoso era questo Beowulf: la sua fama andò lontano, figlio di Scudo, nelle terre Scandinave. To him an heir was afterward born, a son in his halls, whom heaven sent to favor the folk, feeling their woe that erst they had lacked an earl for leader so long a while; the Lord endowed him, the Wielder of Wonder, with world's renown. Famed was this Beowulf. far flew the boast of him, son of Scyld, in the Scandian lands. by lauded deeds Con le sue grandi imprese shall an earl have honor in every clan. Forth he fared at the fated moment, sturdy Scyld to the shelter of God. Sarà un sovrano che avrà onore in ogni clan. Andò lontano nel momento predestinato, Forte Scudo nel rifugio di Dio. the passage is from the prelude of beowulf and it introduces him, he became famous in scandinavia for his heroic deeds. beowulf was the son of the king, sent by god, he has to lead the folks and listen to their woe. the names beowulf is called with are the wielder of wonder', 'sturdy shield'. to have honor for the geats meant to have honor on the battlefield, fighting bravely, killing the enemies and maybe dying courageously, this is not in accordance with christian sensibility because violence is not compatible and accepted by the christian faith. the hero is predestined to carry out great deeds (1.5 the lord endowed him), he is famous (l.7 famed was this beowulf, far flew the boast of him), he is a leader (l.1 to him an heir was afterwards born), he is capable of great acts (l.9-10 by lauded deeds shall an earl have honor in every clan.), he is a figure of high social status (l.4 that erst they had lacked an earl for leader). in the text the predominant poetic device is alliteration because beowulf was originally an oral text to be listened and not read, this creates rhythm and helps public memorise the text. in the part of the poem that speaks of the battle between beowulf and gredel, we find the monster very violent in the confrontations of beowulf's men, but beowulf being a hero had supernatural strength. he managed to scare him and defeat him with the help of his men, the monster died slowly due to a serious wound.
