Subsequent to a critical evaluation of research done on the figure in the years 1826-1974, an analysis is undertaken of Wates role in prominent literary works of medieval Germany (e.g.

Alexanderlied, Dietrichs Flucht), Scandinavia (The Thidrekssaga), and England. The examination of his function within the literary milieu demonstrates that Brobdingnagian traits are a fundamental aspect of Wates character. The etymology of his name, as well as his appearance as a giant in folklore, provide further evidence of Wates significance as the manifestation of a primitive growth concept.
