Beowulf is the first great English, Anglo-Saxon, literary epic, chronicling a hero's exploits as northern European clans teeter between Christianity and the old religions. A monster, Grendel, has descended on Heorot, mead hall of King Hrothgar, bringing death and chaos for 12 years. Beowulf, hero of the Geats, travels to the land of the Danes to free them from Grendel's grasp. With boldness and God's help, Beowulf defeats Grendel and Grendel's mother when she comes seeking vengeance. Finally, at the end of a long reign as king of the Geats, Beowulf faces a dragon to save his people and burn his name into the pages of history.
From what I can see, the study guide arrived in good condition. However, my order was not processed and shipped as soon as I expected; it took much longer. This was likely due to Christmas vacation and the holidays but many homeschoolers still actually continue with school during that time and I've been scrambling a bit to lay an introductory foundation to the book my son will be reading.
