    Beowulf was boastful, greedy and extremely lustful. He was boastful when he told the story of his “race with the sea monsters.” Beowulf admits that he lost the race, but says that the reason he lost was because he was too busy killing the sea monsters that dragged him under the water. Thanks to Socratic irony, we knew that he was lying and the “sea monster” that dragged him down was really just a beautiful mermaid. As the movie continued, Beowulf was able to defeat Grendel. The demon went back to the cave that he and his mother live in.…
