|DIRECTIONS: Use the
following form to identify and define an important, significant word
from Beowulf. Choose a word that is important to your
understanding of the poem. Beowulf is full of words that are
hard to pronounce and hard to understand in our present context. But
don't choose a word on that basis alone. Try to find a word that once it
is defined completely helps you build a richer understanding of the poem
and its historical context.
