    Good doesn’t always defeat Evil, in real life or in stories. Most modern day stories are made for moral enjoyment, if Evil triumphed over Good then people would find it socially uncomfortable, because entertainment is for enjoyment therefore it must coincide to our morals.

    Well, I kinda looked at it like karma. The evil person does something, then karma bites them and they lose.Not sure if it helped, but I hope it did

    Good always wins because we like to have hope that despite all of the bad, we can still make it through. We would like more than just hope. These are stories made to help humanity, that comfort humanity. It is a reason why some people pray, the reason why some people believe in a higher power watching over us. The reality is that “good” does not always win. Take for instance hitler, sure he is gone but did good actually win. Optimistic view would say yes, but how many people are still living with those painful memories? how many people died. In such situation no one every wins. If you see it in a general fashion neither of them have won. I think we create these stories to cope with the reality that things don’t always go as smooth. Shadow

    Beowulf was created in a time when tribe wars was strife and no one really understood why so many bad things were happening all the time (mainly because of the lack of head leadership in the form of government, hierarchy etc) so they had to create the belief that good always does triumph over evil and even though it does not seem like it, they had to hold on to the belief so that their spirits wouldn’t be crushed.. At least that is my personal opinion of the concept in relative to Beowulf. Beowulf would triumph in the face of all danger and it gave people hope to hear the story in their dreary lives.
