Beowulf ctd.

The warriors who have run away come skulking back from the woods. Wiglaf gives them a sound telling-off, saying that they’re worse than useless – as soon as the news about king’s death spread abroad, the neighbouring tribes are going to invade, and they are going to invade even more willingly, seeing what lousy warriors they are. They are also going to lose all the land and bounty that Beowulf lavished on them, and it will serve them right, too. Then he sends the messenger to announce the news about the king’s death to the awaiting army. The messenger foresees the foreign invasion as well.
