EXPOSITION: In the beautiful city of herot, people are being terrorized by a fiend named Grendel. Beowulf, a strong and brave man, arrives to save herot from its doomed fate.
The CONFLICT is that herot wants to remain a peaceful place when grendel wants to terrorize and kill the people within it because he is jealous.
RISING ACTION: Beowulf comes into Herot and begins his fight with Grendel. Beowulf kills Grendel, but his body is missing from the post which Beowulf pegged his body upon and crawls into the sea. Seeking vengeance, Grendel's mother attacks Beowulf at the bottom of the sea. Beowulf can not attack her with his bare hands and instead, chops her head off with a sword crafted by giants-which is the CLIMAX-.
The FALLING ACTION is when Beowulf chops off Grendel's head like he did hjs mother's and brings it to the shore.
The THEME is "those who seek victory, must endure struggles and overcome elements of evil to obtain glory"
The RESOLUTION is that Beowulf is crowned prince and becomes known as an epic hero of Herot and saves it from the evils which it was once facing
