Grendel was a monster, born in the deep dark deserted swamp.
Look at all of these stupid sleeping soldiers, such an easy meal!
Grendel would steal warriors and take his victims back to his home at the swamp to later kill and eat.
You won't win, hostile beast.
Grendel heard the music and celebrating from Herot and set out to silence (kill) them.
Rejoice! The criminal, crazed, crime seeking creature is defeated.
Grendel went to the hall and attacked the sleeping soldiers.
Grendel picked up Beowulf and realized he wasn't like the other men and immediately regretted his decision.
Grendel got his arm cut off and is retreating back to his swamp to die. "He twisted in pain, And the bleeding sinews deep in his shoulder Snapped, muscle and bone split And broke." "Grendel escaped, But wounded as he was could flee to his den, His miserable hole at the bottom of the marsh, Only to die, to wait for the end Of all his days."
