Question

Use Beowulf (pp. 282-283) to answer the question. Beowulf's statement in lines 36-37 is ironic because- A. the Danes will not mourn Beowulf B. Beowulf and his men will survive C. there will be no corpses if Grendel wins D. Beowulf does not trust the Danes

Solution

Verified

C- There will be no corpses if Grendel wins

Beowulf says that if he dies, no Danes will "fret about sewing our shrouds (pg 283)". A shroud is something that a dead body is wrapped in. This is ironic because if Beowulf is defeated, there will be no body left to wrap.
