The paper identifies the common idea of chivalry and heroism in all three stories of "Beowulf," "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" and "Oroonoko". The paper shows how, whether the man of honor is officially a hero, or just one to his people, it is ultimately the actions he performs that raise him to a heroic status.
From the Paper:"In the history of British Literature the topic of heroes is quite prevalent. Throughout time many readers have seen different types of epics which show the basic traits and values of what exactly make up a hero. The most common idea revolves around the topics of chivalry and heroic deeds, which combined together give them this heroic title. Although many of these stories usually consist of the main character being a knight, we have also seen some that are not officially classic heroes, but seen instead as one in the eyes of their people."
