Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of Latin and Greek words and collocations that occur in this book titled Heroic Identity in the World of Beowulf. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. If Greeks and Romans could view some of Alexanders behaviors as immoral (vainglorious, specifically), an Anglo-Saxon could just as easily condemn Beowulf for similar failingsespecially because their own outlook on Alexander was largely negative. No modern English term quite captures Beowulf s motivation, which in Greek epic might be expressed as thymos, a quality associated with ones personal ambition for honor and a touchy regard for its public acknowledgment.

Keywords: Alexander; Beowulf; Greek word
