Option #1:

Many readers have pointed out that the fears, hopes, and attitudes seen in Caedmon’s Hymn, Gilgamesh, and Beowulf are still present in the world today. Is this true? If so, which appear to be the most prevalent?

Option #2:

One theory about myths is that they help the people in a given community to come to terms with their world more easily. Can any of the lessons in Caedmon’s Hymn, Gilgamesh, and/or Beowulf still be studied with an eye to improving a person’s way of dealing with life today?

Option #3:

Tragedy is usually defined as the fall of a great hero who endures his fate courageously and nobly. Is this true of Gilgamesh and Beowulf? Compare the two heroes? In what ways are they alike? In what ways are they different? What lessons, or legacy, did they leave for their readers?
