Beowulf was a character that was given or blessed by the gods to the people during his time to be a saviour against evil and to become a just ruler.For all these reasons, (adventures, character, treasures and blessings) Beowulf was an epic hero amongst his era.Grendel had the strength of 30 men, Grendel’s mother could not be taken down by a normal sword’s full attack head on, and a dragon was simply above humanity...., and was capable of slaying Grendel’s mother, could not be just a pure coincidence.Only a potentially superior monster or heaven-defying beast fit the criteria for an antagonist role against the main hero; any ordinary villains would not be worth mentioning at all.

It almost dehumanises the characters, and heavily implies that black women were not allowed to be mothers.Whilst the authoritarian control of the slave market meant that Sethe's children were never her own possessions, she refused to give in to that and continued to love her children `thickly' despite advice that this was a risk.She uses the experiences and perspectives of black women to develop a view of black motherhood, that is, in terms of both maternal identity and role, very different from how motherhood is practised in the dominant culture.She represents the barrier that was often necessary in order to resist loving their offspring too much.On a deeper level she is a reminder of the past that eventually helps Sethe and Paul D to d...
