beowulf essay prompt

And the winner is...

Beowulf exemplifies the heroic traits and the literary techniques of its time.  Analyze this in the context of our class discussion and the commentary you read, and compare with a contemporary hero and the way his/her story is told. 
Extension (you can do this as a separate piece, or you can do this within the framework you establish in response to the above prompt, but this idea was too good to let go even if its authors did :)

How would Beowulf be different if the story was told from a feminist perspective?

Thanks for all your ideas!  Looking forward to reading your work.
