Storyboard Text

  • Grendel, Who was mortally wounded, fled "to his den,/ to [h]is miserable hole at the bottom of the marsh"(394-395).
  • In retaliation of her sons' death, Grendel's mother comes in the night and "kills Hrothgar's closest friend and carries off her child's/ claw"(Raffel,  51).
  • Upon hearing about the mother's attack, Beowulf went to the entrance to her domain and "leaped into the lake," against everyone's pleas (468).
  • As soon as Beowulf entered the mothers' domain, however, she "welcomed him in her claws," and brought him "into someone's battle hall" (475, 486).
  • In this hall, Beowulf was forced to fight Grendel's mother.  He quickly realized, however, that "no sword could slice her evil / [s]kin" (496-97). No sword, but the very one she kept as a trophy!
  • After Beowulf slew Grendel's mother, he returned with his two trophies. The only treasures he left the cave with, were "Grendel's head and the hilt of the [. . .]/ sword" that he had slain the mother with (587-588).
