"Now I mean to be a match for Grendel,Settle the outcome in a single combat.And so, my request, O king of Bright-Danes,Dear prince pf the Shieldings, friend of the peopleAnd their ring of defense, my one requestIs that you won’t refuse me, who have come this far, The privilege of purifying Heorot" (425-431)
I swear I will kill Grendel!
Beowulf asking Hrothgar if he can kill Grendel represents the call to adventure. Once Beowulf hears of Grendel, he sets off to kill it to bolster his reputation
Then out of the nightCame the shadow-stalker, stealthy and swift;The hall-guards were slack, asleep at their posts,All except one (703-706)
This represents Beowulf taking on the path of trials once he learns about the creature and what he is capable of.
You noblest of men; there’ll be nothing you want for, No worldly good that won’t be yours. I have often honored smaller achievements, Recognized warriors not nearly as worthy, Lavished rewards on the less deserving. But you have made yourself immortal By your glorious action (948-954)
This represents Beowulf being the master of both worlds, as he has defeated Grendel, been rewarded, and will soon head home to tell of his heroic actions.
