Beowulf and the Viking Sagas (LTPR 138)

Andrew’s work this session displayed a solid grasp of the course materials, and he had an excellent attendance record.

Andrew’s first paper discussed the construction of monstrosity in Beowulf. While it had some good individual points about specific elements, these points could have been better connected to an overall thesis. Andrew’s final paper on fate and private belief was likewise scattered in its focus. ┬áThe lack of a strong central thesis meant that observations seemed more like plot-summary than an argument in this satisfactory work.

Overall, Andrew’s work this session was satisfactory to good.
