  • The characters in Beowulf don't have any time for family dysfunction. They're all too busy

  • being identified as each other's sons.

  • We'll talk about the other ways identity is established in this poemand why identity

  • is importantwhen we talk about Theme 2.

  • Lineage and reputation.

  • Sear those words into your skull if you want to remember theme 2—the importance of identity.

  • Beowulf is all about heroism. Yes, it's about what it takes to be a hero, but it's also

  • a chronicle of heroic acts. Heroic acts, for which characters later become known ... thereby

  • establishing their identity.

  • And that's why lineage and reputation are so importantthey give characters a way

  • not just to identify with their own heroic acts, but also with the acts of those that

  • came before them.

  • Lineage sets out certain standards of heroism. Characters take pride in those standards and

  • attempt to live up to them themselves. For example, Beowulf tries to live up to the reputation

  • of his father.

  • Meanwhile, in attempting to live up to those standards, each character builds his own heroic

  • reputation, both through his deeds and through his values.

  • In the end, you can think of this poem's focus on identity as the way it puts a face on heroism.

  • Identity's importance lies in the fact that it takes heroism from the abstract ... to

  • the personal and attainable.
