Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference books and articles of ancient authors. The entries are arranged alphabetical order. This book emphasizes Beowulf's identity as a foreign fighter seeking glory abroad. Such men resemble wreccan, &t;exiles&t; compelled to leave their homelands due to excessive violence. Beowulf may be potentially arrogant, therefore, but he learns prudence.

Keywords: Beowulf; heroic identity
