Storyboard Text

  • Beowulf was fighting Grendel's mom, and "she welcomed him in her claws, / [c]lutched at him savagely but could not harm him" (Raffel 475-476).
  • After defeating Grendel, Beowulf takes "Grendel's head and the hilt of the giant's / [j]ewled sword" as a trophy from the lair (587-588).
  • Grendel's was so large his "skull [was] / [t]oo heavy for fewer than four [men] to handle" (608-610).
  • Another monster, a dragon menaces in Beowulf's kingdom. Beowulf knows he is "old, now, / [b]ut [he] will fight again, [and] seek fame still" (625-626). He heads out to the rocky cliffs to fight yet again, another battle.
  • Beowulf confronted the dragon, the dragon"[c]oiled and uncoiled" then, the dragon "came quickly toward him / [p]ouring out fire and smoke" (673, 680-681)
  • In Beowulf's battle with the dragon, he was defeated. He turned to Wiglaf and told him his two dying requests to "have the brave Geats build [him] a tomb", and for Wiglaf to "lead [his] people, [and] / help them" (822, 824).
