Line 235-240: " Grendel came, hoping to kill/ Anyone he could trap on this trip to high Herot/ He moved quickly through the cloudy night/ Up from his swampland, sliding silently/ Toward that gold-shining hall. He had visited Hrothgar's/ Home before, knew the way."
To hell grendel goes
Line 260-265: "Eyes were watching his evil steps, / Waiting to see his swift hard claws/ Grendel snatched at the first Geat/ He came to, ripped him apart, cut/ His body to bits with powerful jaws/ Drank the blood from his veins and bolted."
Line 278- 279: "Hard grip. Grendel's one thought was to run/ From Beowulf, flee back to his marsh and hide there"
Line 327-330: "That blunted every mortal man's blade/ And yet his time had come, his days/ Were over, his death near; down/ To hell he would go, swept groaning and helpless."
Line 340-344: "Snapped, muscle, and bone split/ And broke. The battle was over,Beowulf/ Had been granted new glory: Grendel escaped,/ But wounded as he was could flee to his den,/ His miserable hole at the bottom of the marsh,"
Line 376-380: "Then old and young rejoiced, turned back/ From that happy pilgrimage, mounted their hard-hooved/ Horses, high-spirited stallions, and rode them/ Slowly toward Herot again, retelling/ Beowulf's bravery as they jogged along."
