What is a thesis statement?
A thesis statement is road map for your essay. It tells your reader what they will be reading about without using the words "I will be writing about..." Your thesis statement should be specific, only cover what you will discuss in your paper, and provide specific evidence.
Besides Caesar, who else was guilty of being ambitious? Explain.
Many characters embody the trait of ambition. Besides Caesar himself, Cassius is also ambitious. He is jealous of Caesar and greedy for power. He uses his ambition as motivation to convince Brutus and the other conspirators to carry out their plan to murder Caesar, which he justifies as an act to free their country from tyranny.
Why is Grendel upset by the activities going on in Herot? How does this relate to him being a descendant of Cain?
Grendel is upset and motivated to attack the warriors in Herot because he feels rejected and left out from the society around him. In the text, Grendel is described as "a creature of darkness, exiled from happiness and accursed of God." Similar to Cain murdering out of jealousy and hate, Grendel too murders those around him.
