Rap about beowulf and grendel
Beowulf With Related Readings by Burton RaffelBefore Reading Beowulf
I have to read this for my AP Lit summer homework and I really dont want to read it. Its just not something I can enjoy. Ugh!
After Reading Beowulf
Yep. I am not being dramatic, I promise.
I expected to hate this book, and I was right. It was a totally MISERABLE read. I could not wait to be finished with it. I dreaded starting this book and if it wasnt required reading for my AP Lit class, I would have DNFd it right away.
No female, no matter how fierce, could have come with a mans strength, fought with the power and courage men fight with... (Lines 1282-1284)
First, I get that its old. Really, really old. So old theres no known author, but I was so frustrated with the way women were treated and spoken of. I get that thats how things were, but that doesnt mean I cant be upset by it. And I was. And, in all honestly, Grendels mother was pretty fierce and despite her being the bad guy, I liked her more than Beowulf.
And how great a sin for a women, whether fair or black, to create fear and destruction, for a women, who should walk in the ways of peace... (Lines 1940-1944)
Of course, I totally hated Beowulf. All he wanted was fame, and I just wasnt down with that. And come on, did they really have to go on and on and on about how heroic he is? I got it the first time, thanks.
I may not have appreciated the book the way others do, and I dont care. I just do not like this book. I dont care what historic value it has or how important it is to literature. Not.my.type.of.book. Not something I would ever enjoy.
Unfortunately, I have to study and prepare to be tested in on it next month. Yikes. (This is probably the angstiest and most ranty book review Ive ever written.)

All righty! This update will be much quicker than the last. That might seem like a lot. But, honestly, I expect this part of the editing to take much less time than the poem itself, since when I was making my original posts I think the commentaries generally saw much more attention than the scraps of the poem I was posting. As for the timeline? Two weeks ago I had written that I was thinking this book would be finished and ready by the end of February. Though, being completely real, the end of February might just be when the pre-orders start.
Post a Comment. Alliterative Verse has some similarities to rap songs. Both were sometimes composed during a performance, instead of before. Both have accentual rhythm. Both use poetic devices that repeat sounds. One difference is that Alliterative Verse uses alliteration in predictable ways, but rap uses rhyme, consonance, and assonance just as much, and sometimes in surprising ways.
