Storyboard Text

  • “Our only help, Again, lies with you. Grendel’s mother Is hidden in her terrible home, in a place You’ve not seen. Seek it, if you dare! Save us, Once more, and again twisted gold, Heaped-up ancient treasure will reward you For the battle you win!” (Lines 440-446 pg 31)
  • ¨Then he realized, suddenly, That she'd brought him into someone's battle-hall, And there the water's heat could not hurt him. Nor anything in the lake attack him through The building´s high-arching roof. A brilliant Light burned all around him, the lake Itself like a fiery flame.¨ (Lines 483-489 pg 32)
  • “Then he saw, hanging on the wall, a heavy Sword, hammered by giants, strong And blessed with their magic, the best of all weapons But so massive that no ordinary man could lift Its carved and decorated length. He drew it From its scabbard, broke the chain on its hilt And then, savage, now, angry And desperate, lifted it high over his head And struck with all the strength he had left, Caught her in the neck and cut it through. Broke bones and all. Her body fell To the floor, lifeless, the sword was wet With her blood, and Beowulf rejoiced at the sight.” (Lines 528-540 pg 33)
  • “I am going to use this light-of-battle on the wall to kill Grendel’s mother”
  • “But Beowulf repaid him for those visits Found him lying dead in his corner, Armless, exactly as that fierce fighter Had sent him out from Herot, then struck off His head with a single swift blow. The body jerked for the last time, then lay still.” (Lines 555-560 pgs 33-34)
  • "It's Grendel the demon"
  • “And then the battle’s only survivor Swam up and away from those silent corpses; The water was calm and clean, the whole Huge lake peaceful once the demons who’d lived in it Were dead.” (Lines 589-593 pg 35)
  • “At the hall, bold and warlike, and with Beowulf, Their lord and leader, they walked on the mead-hall Green. Then the Geats’ brave prince entered Herot, covered with glory for the daring Battles he had fought; he sought Hrothgar To salute him and show Grendel’s head. He carried that terrible trophy by the hair, Brought it straight to where the Danes sat, Drinking, the queen among them. It was a weird And wonderful sight, and the warriors stared.” (Lines 611-620 pg 35)
  • “You have killed the shepherd-of-evil and broke his head off at once!”
  • "Beowulf the brave is back"
