You have read the story of Beowulf's last battle in two forms-as part of an epic poem, and as part of a graphic novel. Now, deepen your understanding by comparing and writing about the two works. Critical writing is a type of argumentation. The writer makes a claim about the effectiveness of a text and supports the claim with reasons and evidence. Critical writing also anticipates counterclaims-differing points of view-and responds to them fairly. Write a critical evaluation of the excerpt from the graphic novel Beowulf. In your essay, make a claim about the graphic novel as a storytelling medium. As you craft your claim, consider the question: How effective is the graphic novel excerpt as an adaptation of "The Last Battle"? To support your claim, cite evidence from both the graphic novel and the epic poem. Include at least one counterclaim and present an argument in response to it.
