The battle is a sign that even though good has the advantage, good can never have an ultimate victory over evil. Through its powerful use of symbolism in Beowulf’s battles with Grendel and the dragon, Beowulf draws a clear distinction between good and evil, going on to show that the world is fated to a never-ending battle between good and evil. Throughout the poem, Beowulf matures from a good warrior to a good king. He follows comitatus; the relationship between the king and his thanes where the thanes are loyal and fight battles for their king, and in return, the king gifts them with winnings from the battle. A good king or warrior also pays wergild, the price a warrior pays to the family of a slain warrior.
In order for Gawain to not bring dishonor to the kingdom, he must past all parts of the test. As Cindy L. Vitto states in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as Adolescent Literature: Essential Lessons, “(Morgan Le Fay) has devised the entire ‘game’ in an effort to test Arthur’s court and to frighten Guenever to death”(Vitto 4). Ultimately, while she does not frighten Quenever to death, Morgan Le Fay succeeds in making fools out of Arthur’s court by exposing Gawain as a less than worthy knight. As Gawain fails, Morgan accomplishes her goal of dishonoring the court in an attempt to make Arthur and his knights look like frauds. The story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is about a testing of Sir Arthur The Great’s court and the knight, Sir Gawain, who accepts the challenge on their behalf.
First and foremost, Uncle Axel is a figure who David is able to consult regarding his problems.

The classic mythical hero is not a very humble character. He possesses a great amount of self-confidence in his actions and loyalty to his companions. The Hobbit written by J.R.R Tolkien and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe written by C.S. Lewis are children’s classic fantasy novels. Both novels place strong emphasis on the heroic theme and primary character development.
Snowball doesn’t see him as a threat until it is too late due to clever organisation and planning. However, although he is more like the other animals than Napoleon, Snowball is by no means the same as them. ‘No sentimentality, comrade! … War is war. The only good human being is a dead one.’ Snowball is a ruthless leader who is committed to the revolution, so committed in fact that he indicates he’d be willing to die for Animal Farm.
Thus, with John Gardner’s novel, you have a different perspective of the story from the “monster’s” point of view and have a better understanding of who Grendel really is and not just what the humans think of him. One instance of how Grendel is misunderstood as a monster is by his first encounter with humans. After he accidently gets trapped in a tree, he is discovered by a group of thanes out on patrol. They had no idea what Grendel is and are cautious of him. At first, they assumed he was a tree spirit of some sort who was killing the tree because he was hungry so they wanted to get food for him.
