The epic poem Beowulf combines elements of paganism and Christianity. One aspect of paganism is the concept of wyrd, the Old-English word for "fate." What is the role of fate in the poem? Based on your understanding of Beowulf, how do you think Anglo-Saxon society viewed fate? I don't really understand what this question is asking.

    ok so its basically through their actions, fate will decide how everything will go down in the poem and nothing they do can change fate
