"At night there, something uncanny happens: the water burns. And the mere bottom has never been sounded by the sons of men". (1365-1368)
"Quickly the one haunted those waters, who had scavenged and gone her gluttonous rounds for a hundred seasons, sensed a human observing her outlandish lair from above." (1497-1500)

"So she lunged and clutched and managed to catch him in her brutal grip, but his body, for all that, remained unscathed: the mesh of the chain-mail saved him on the outside." (1501-1504)
"The decorated blade came down ringing and singing on her head. But he soon found his battle-torch extinguished: the shining blade refused to bite. It speared her and failed the man in his need." (1521-1525)
"Then he saw a blade that boded well, a sword in her armory, and ancient heirloom from the days of giants, and ideal weapon, one that any warrior would envy, but so huge and heavy of itself only Beowulf could wield it in battle." (1557-1562)
"So the Shielding's hero, hard-pressed and enraged, took a firm hold of the hilt and swung the blade in an arc, a resolute blow that deep into her neck-bone and severed it entirely, toppling the doomed house of her flesh; she fell to the floor. The sword dripped blood, the swordsman was elated." (1563-1569)
