The Battle Begins
The Defensive Strike
"Beowulf the warrior lifted his shield: the firedrake writhed an convulsed and vehemently challenged the king, whose keen, edged sword, an heirloom inherited by ancient right was already in his hand."
"Yet his shield defended the renowned leader's life and limb for a shorter time than he meant it to that final day was the first time when Beowulf fought and fate denied him glory in battle.
"So the king of the Geats raised his hand and struck hard at the enameled scales, but scarcely cut through: the blade flashed and slashed yet the blow was far less powerful than the hard-pressed king had need at that moment."
