Why is the following passage a typologically important one for interpreting Beowulf?

            “Just so I ruled the Ring-Danes’ country

            for fifty years, defended them in wartime

            with spear and sword against constant assaults

            by many tribes: I came to believe

            my enemies had faded from the face of the earth.

            Still, what happened was a hard reversal

from bliss to grief. Grendel struck

after lying in wait.” (1669-1776)

How does the following passage show Arthur’s conflicted character?

            His blood was busy and he buzzed with thoughts,

            and the matter which played on his mind at that moment

            was his pledge to take no portion from his plate

            on such a special day until a story was told:

            some far-fetched yarn or outrageous fable,

            like the action-packed epics of men-at-arms.

            Or till some chancer had challenged his chosen knight,

            dared him, with a lance, to lay life on the line,

            to stare death face-to-face and accept defeat

            should fortune or fate smile more favorably on his foe. (89-98)
