  • "Then news of Grendel, Hard to ignore, reached me at home:  Sailors brought stories of the plight you suffer In this legendary hall, how it lies deserted, Empty and useless once the evening light Hides itself under Heaven’s dome." (409-414)

  • What great news to hear.
  • Adventure is calling!
  • Grendel terrorizing the Danes is Beowulf's call to adventure. This is part 1 of the hero's journey since he accepts and goes to help the Danes defeat Grendel. 
  • "But the earl troop’s leader was not inclined  To allow his caller to depart alive:He did not consider that life of much account To anyone anywhere. Time and again,Beowulf’s warriors worked to defend Their lord’s life, laying about them As best they could with their ancestral blades." (790-796)
