    請讀完以下的一篇essay equestion

    Q: Beowulf contains Christians elements, but the epic eventually belongs to

    pagan literature. What are its Christian elements and Pagan charateristics?

    A: There is a controversy about whether the Christian elements are intrinsic

    or interpolated by a tenth-century monastic scribe. From its contents,

    the Christianity of the epic does not much resemble that of the Middle

    Ages or of the modern period. Yet it is obvious that Christianity enters

    into the contemporary society. Therefore, the poem is frequently regarded

    as a meditation on the traditional pagan value system from the moral

    viewpoint of the new, incompletely assimilated Christianity.

    Ironically, althouth the epic includes Christian elements, it lacks Christian

    spirit, such as kindness, humility, and love. Instead, it stresses skill, valor

    loyalty, honor and glory that represents pagan characteristics. Actually,

    the epic provides the Anglo-Saxon culture. In the society, struggle against

    nature is everywhere, and honor is everything. There is an emphasis on

    a warrior's courage in battle, and a lord's generosity to kinsmen--whcih is

    based on comitatus.

    Bewulf 是不是基督教的詩呢?

    答:雖然是一首史詩, 含有基督教的義理, 但卻和異教徒精神畫上等號, 基督

    教講求的精神是仁慈,謙卑和愛, 但是這首詩卻強調英勇, 榮譽和光

    榮事蹟. 同時這首詩也有異教徒所強調的宿命論觀點, 因為表沃夫在

    與龍的對抗中預見他未來的失敗。在基督徒眼中, 表沃夫的英雄主義

    是不切實際的, 因為真正的英雄是追求基督徒的信仰與救贖觀念, 而

    非世俗的榮耀。

    含有基教教成分在詩裡面有什麼優點和缺點?原文當中哪些地方

    可以拿出來支持論點?

    答:優點─基督教肯為人類犠牲, 彰顯人性光輝, 原文開場白 The Dream

    of the Rood, 其中Rood 就是指十字架, 表沃夫為民除害擁有基督教

    精神。

    缺點─本篇史詩在談論表沃夫勇猛殺敵的同時,太過強調英雄主義

    事蹟, 反而和異教徒追求世俗的榮耀有關,原文中有提到 Let him who

    may get glory before death; that is best for the warrior after he

    has gone from life. 就略知一二。
