If Beowulf had been written in a different place and time, it might have taken the form of an ode since it praises a man, has three parts and was originally recited out loud (or even sung). In this case, Beowulf's funeral would have been the epode of the ode.

Why?

A

Beowulf's funeral mirrors the beginning of the poem.

B

Beowulf's funeral ties together the story of Beowulf.

C

Beowulf's funeral is the opposite of the creation of the dragon's cave.

D

Beowulf's funeral ties together the deaths of Grendel, Grendel's mother and the dragon.

E

Beowulf's funeral mirrors his demise.
