Beowulf (4 of 6)

Publication Date: April 13, 2010

Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages

According to what I've read, the most literal translation of that passage is "he is a whole day reaching the bottom of the sea." I mean, I know he's an epic hero, but Guybrush Threepwood couldn't hold his breath that long. There's really only one logical explanation: Beowulf is an alien. Or a robot. Or an alien robot.

Alright, fine, so maybe I'm being pedantic. Surely this is supposed to be a tale of fantasy, in which logic need not always apply. But dammit, unless Beowulf can also talk to fish and team up with Batman, he shouldn't be underwater for that long.
