Storyboard Text

  • For hours he sank through the waves; at last he saw th emud on the bottom at all once the greedy she-wolf who's ruled those water for half a hundred years discovered him, saw that a creature from above had come to explore the bottom of her world. (1495-1502)
  • She welcomed him in her claws, clutched at him savagely but could not harm him, tried to work her fingers through the tight woven mail on his breast, but tore and scratched in vain. Then she carried him, armor and all, to her home; he struggled to free his weapon, and failed. (1502-1507)
  • Then he saw the mighty water-witch, and swung his sword, his ring-marked blade, straight at her head; the iron sang its fierce song, sang of Beowulf's strength. (1518-1522)
  • If weapons were useless he'd have to use his hands, the strength in his fingers. So fame comes to the men who mean it and care of nothing else! He raised his arms and seized her by the shoulder, anger doubled his strength. (1534-1538)
  • Holy God, who sent him victory, gave judgment for truth and right, ruler of the heavens, once Beowulf as back on his feet fighting. Then he saw, hanging on the wall, a heavy sword, hammered by giants, strong and blessed with their magic, the best of all weapons but so massive that no ordinary man could lift its carved and decorated length. (1548-1561)
  • And then, savage, now, angry and desperate lifted it high over his head and struck her with all of the strength he had left, caught her in the neck and broke through it, broke bones and all. Her body fell to the floor, lifeless, the sword was wet with her blood and Beowulf rejoiced at the sight. The brilliant light shone, suddenly, as though burning through that hall, and as bright as Heave's own candle, lit in the sky. (1564-1573)
