HI, I like this picture. My sister is studying Beowulf at degree level and she did not get the impression of Wiglaf at all. He was one of the warriors Beowulf chose to fight the dragon with so he could not possibly be weak and also without Wiglaf fighting the dragone would not have died.
However, I do like to see different interpretations of the story. I will be putting a picture of the fight with the dragon on my gallery shortly if you would like to have a look. Elizabeth Bartlett
replies: "Oh, I know Wiglaf isn't weak; it's just sad, because that's how he's often portrayed by literary interpreters. He was the strongest one in the story, if you ask me. I liked him. Yeah, I might check out your gallery; thanks for dropping by, and feel free to visit again!"

I was thinking the whole Lancelot and Arthur thing. Like Beowulf's right hand man perhaps. But I loved the story and I love this pic. Elizabeth Bartlett
replies: "Yeah, Lance & Arthur; also a good story! But Beowulf is SUCH a classic; thanks for commenting, hun!"

I had to write a story about Wiglaf in English. After I failed to graduate I started writing it again. It's posted on elfwood. I thought he was a strong character, he fought when no one else would, and honor is greater then physical stregnth, in my opinion anyway, and guys who will fight for those they love are sexy.

replies: "I totally agree with you on that one. That's one of the reasons I like Wiglaf so much; he's honorable, and stands by what he believes in. And yes, that is sexy!!! ^_^"
