Why is this trash considered mandatory reading?

Because of our Judaic-feminist overlords

Beowulf is dope???

I don't want to call it trash, but, after reading it I was very confused by the praise and it's supposed influence.
No wonder why the author didn't want his name on it.

Dude wat Beowulf is fuckin tite.

I wouldn't call Beowulf a foundational text, tho. It's importance was only apraised last century thanks to Tolkien's essays. Chaucer's is muchos more foundational for English literature.
