  • Beowulf, now very old, determined to defeat the monster, gives his followers one last farewell, before he "...will fight again, seek fame still, if the dragon hiding in his tower dares to fight (him)" (Raffell 626-627)
  • Beowulf and his men march to the dragon's den, ready for battle, then, Beowulf "lowered his sword and roared out a battle cry", a powerful yell that "rung in the dragon's [e]ar" (Raffell 663-666)
  • "The beast arose, angry," and attacked the Geats. All the men Beowulf had brought had fled, except one, Wiglaf, who was "...Wextstan's son [a]nd a good soldier" who fought bravely with Beowulf the way through (Raffell 666-715)
  • Wiglaf, seeing his king wounded and losing, "...he ran to his king, crying encouragement [a]s he dove into the dragon's deadly fumes", and together, they kill the beast, but Beowulf was mortally wounded andas a dying wish, asks Wiglaf to bring him the treasure from the beast (Raffell 773-774)
  • The great king has fallen, and as they finish giving him the Hero's farewell, thy burn his corpse. Afterwards they repaid their king's and "...built the tower, as Beowulf [h]ad asked, strong and tall, so sailors [c]ould find it from far and wide (Raffell 843-844)
