Hrothgar was full of sorrow and agony. The shelteror of warriors couldn't help his people.
Beowulf, a grand warrior, arrived on the Danish shores and requested to speak with Hrothgar. He offers the king to defeat Grendel and end the terror.
My people have said, the wisest, most knowing and best of them, that my duty was to go to the Danes' great king. The days of my youth have been filled with glory. Now Grendel's name has echoed in our land.
Beowulf creates a plan to kill Grendel during the night when he comes to feast on innocent soldiers. He is confident that he can defeat the evil creature with only his bare hands.
God must decide who will be given death's cold grip.
