    How is Beowulf typical of an epic hero? Consider other characters in the poem as well, such as...

    Hrothgar, Wiglaf, and Beowulf's men. In what ways do they live up to, or fail to live up to, the image of the epic hero?

    Is this an essay question you have to answer?

    I wouldn't say that "Beowulf" is "typical," because Beowulf is such an ancient story that it's really a standard setter in that genre.
