Beowulf:Literary elements

Recommended Posts

In the story Beowulf: what are the alliterations, metaphors and hyperboles in the story. In my British Literature class as a senior we read these parts of Beowulf: Grendel, Grendel's mother, the dragon and the death of Beowulf.


Alliteration I know is using the continuation of p and d but I need an example for each one.

A good approach to an assignment like this is to state, in you own words, the definition of each of the terms of which you’ve been ask to find examples: alliteration, metaphor and hyperbole. If you can do this, you’ll understand the concepts, and be able to find examples in nearly anything you read.
