“Grendel was driven under the fen banks, fatally hurt, to his desolate lair. His days were numbered, the end of his life was coming over him,” (Heaney 818 - 821).
“Then morning came and many a warrior gathered, as I have heard, around the gift-hall, clan-chiefs flocking from far and near down wide-ranging roads, wondering greatly at the monster’s footprint,” (Heaney 836 - 840).
“Then away they rode, the old retainers with many a young man following after, a troop on horseback, in high spirits on their bay steads. Beowulf’s doings were praised over and over again,” (Heaney 852 - 856)
Hooray, Beowulf the sword bearer has bested the beast.
“The man started to recite with skill, rehearsing Beowulf’s triumphs and feats in well-fashioned lines, entwining his words. He told what he’d heard repeated in songs of Sigemund’s exploits,” (Heaney 870 - 873).
“After his death Sigmeund’s glory grew and grew because of his courage when he killed the dragon, the guardian of the hoard,” (Heaney 884 - 887).
“Such was Beowulf in the affection of his friends and of everyone alive. But evil entered into Heremod,” (Heaney 912 - 914).
