Prompt

The heroes of all the myths we have covered thus far have been quite complex, and this week’s reading about Sigurth is no different. In this es.say, analyze how the poems describe Sigurth’s heroic accomplishments, and explain your impression of him. In doing so, pay close attention to his fight with the dragon, his promise to Brynhild, his pact with Gunner, and his ultimate betrayal.
