“Killing as often as he could, coming Alone, bloodthirsty and horrible.” (pg. 23]
As Beowulf dies, he tells Wiglaf that he sold his life for the treasure. He tells him to take what he leaves. He also tells him to lead his people, his fellow Geats. He admits that his time is gone. He asks Wiglaf to have the Geats build him a tomb. He asks Wiglaf to have the Geats burn him and build him a tower at the tower’s edge. “Take what I leave, Wiglaf, lead my people, Help them; my time is gone.” [pg.45]
