Storyboard Text

  •  Grendel is a  "monster[ ] born / [o]f Cain." On his first night of terrorizing Herot he "[s]natched up thirty men, smashed them / [u]nknowing in their beds and ran out with their bodies, / [t]he blood dipping behind him [ . . . ] / delighted with his night's slaughter" (Raffel 20-21, 37-40).
  • Beowulf is "greater / [a]nd stronger than anyone anywhere in this world" (110-111). He felt his duty was to slay this monster named Grendel that haunted the mead hall Herot.
  • Beowulf  and the strongest Geats would "sail across the sea to Hrothgar" to kill this monstrous Grendel (115).
  • Once Beowulf  arrived, he approached King Hrothgar and promised "[t]hat [he], alone and with the help of [his] men, [m]ay purge all evil from [Herot]" (260-261). 
  • Later that evening, many  gathered to try to attract Grendel from his den. Once the warriors were asleep Grendel left his swamp and went to Herot "[w]ith the thought of food and the feasting his belly / [w]ould soon know" (308-309).
  • Beowulf  soon arose and battled with Grendel. Grendel wanted to run from this "mighty protector of men" but soon "the monter's / [a]rm, calw, and shoulder and all" was hanging from the rafters in victory of his win (366, 409-410).
