Transcript of Beowulf in the eyes of J.R.R. Tolkien

The End Agree or Disagree? "Man alien in a hostile world, engaged in a struggle which he cannot win while the world lasts."-J.R.R. Tolkien Alienation in Beowulf v. Modern Alienation
Beowulf in the eyes of J.R.R. Tolkien
Presented and Mastered by:
Luke Higgins & Alex Reuss Alienation in Beowulf v. Modern Alienation Questions/Discussion? Alienation in Beowulf- alienation was more literal because of differences such as not being human. Modern Alienation- alienation now is more based on personality differences rather than being a different species. Yes, fighting against alienation is almost impossible. Without support of others the mind is incapable of fighting against the stereotype of being different and lesser. In a sense, this is being buried beneath the norm, in other words, subjugated so far that you cannot fight to get back up. Differences Similarities Alienation, in both cases are seemingly impossible to overcome. As a result of huge prejudices and stereotypes posed against such beings, the human mind is incapable of surpassing these deviations from the norm as shown by such entities, which results in an almost insurmountable barrier between the alienated and the "norm."
