Even throw he got way Grendel didn’t live .Another good deed Beowulf achieved was killing the mother of Grendel. “ Now, angry and desperate, lifted it high over his head and struck with all the strength he had left, caught her in the neck an d cut it through, broke bones and all. Her body fell” (Lines 639-643).
A true hero does not take all the pride in a heroic act instead a hero should be humble not cocky. A modern audience would consider him a monster because of all the attention he seeks, but a medieval audience considers this heroic because he puts his own life at risk to save everyone. The responsibility Beowulf had for killing Grendel became pushy and too far and taken in a gruesome way. The battle between Beowulf and Grendel’s mother was even more monstrous than the battle between Beowulf and Grendel. Beowulf took a sword to the water cave where Grendel’s mother lived.

The primal violence of these desperate savages, plague the centuries between the eighth and eleventh modern
They have obviously lost all sense of reason and are only intent on doing one thing, to kill Ralph. They ruined the whole island which was similar to the Garden of Eden when they first landed, and turned it into the Flames of Hell. In conclusion, the events in this novel tell us that humans are savages by nature. We are all capable of becoming a beast and that the beast is within all of us. Golding shows that without rules, evil overpowers everything.

They came again and Beckett refused. He stood there calling the knights ‘cowards’ this was far too much for one of the knights as he was totally livid with rage. Suddenly there was a slash it came so fast that This night we will report to you about what happened yesterday in the cathedral. 4 knights in metal armour came charging in assassinating Sir Thomas Beckett.

Grendel is a murderous creature who has been killing off the Danes for 12 years without any mercy. He has caused great strife for the King of the Danes, King Hrothgar, and cannot easily be defeated.
