    And Hercules’s defeat of the Nemean Lion was a Beowulfean event.

    Those Thespian lions can be pretty terrifying. Or not, depending on the acting choices:


    Bottom: Let me play the lion too: I will roar, that I will do any man’s heart good to hear me; I will roar, that I will make the duke say ‘Let him roar again, let him roar again!’
    Quince: An you should do it too terribly, you would fright the duchess and the ladies, that they would shriek; and that were enough to hang us all.
    Snug: That would hang us, every mother’s son.
    Bottom: I grant you, friends, if that you should fright the ladies out of their wits, they would have no more discretion but to hang us: but I will aggravate my voice so that I will roar you as gently as any sucking dove; I will roar you an ’twere any nightingale.
