"After these words, the prince of the Weather-Geats Was impatient to be away and plunged suddenly:Without more ado, he dived in to the heaving Depths of the lake. It was the best part of a day Before he could see the solid bottom.Quickly the one who haunted those waters,Who had scavenged and gone her gluttonous rounds For a hundred seasons, sensed a human Observing her outlandish lair from above." (1492-1500)
Belly of the Whale
Beowulf enters the lair of Grendel's Mother. This is in the depths of the lake where she roams and where he must fight until death.
"Then he saw a blade that boded well,A sword in her armory, an ancient heirloomFrom the days of the giants, an ideal weapon,One that any warrior would envy, 1560But so huge and heavy in itself Only Beowulf could wield it in battle.So the Shieldings’ hero, hard-pressed and enraged,Took a firm hold of the hilt and swung The blade in an arc, a resolute blow That bit into her neck bone And severed it entirely, toppling the doomed House of her flesh; she fell to the floor.The sword dripped blood, the swordsman was elated." (1557-1568)

"Beowulf, my friend,Your fame has gone far and wide,You are known everywhere. In all things you are even-tempered,Prudent and resolute. So I stand firm by the promise of friendship We exchanged before. Forever you will be Your people’s mainstay and your own warriors’ Helping hand." (1703-1708)
