Slide 1

English IV Beowulf versus Grendel's Mother

Slide 2

Grendel's Mother She inhabits the base of a profound, dim, detestable lake. She has ruled the waters of this lake for "a large portion of a hundred" years (which means 50). She meets Beowulf as he sinks to the base.

Slide 3

Grendel's Mother versus Beowulf She tries to damage him with her paws, yet his junk mail is excessively solid. She then conveys him to her home under the water, while other ocean animals assault him. Her home under the water is a fight corridor that once had a place with another person.

Slide 4

Grendel's Mother versus Beowulf Notice the symbolism utilized when Beowulf enters that corridor – the water's warmth can't hurt him, nothing in the lake can assault him, and a splendid light smolders surrounding him. The fight lobby is by all accounts a supernatural place, if not one that has religious ramifications for Beowulf.

Slide 5

Grendel's Mother versus Beowulf's sword (Hrunting, obtained from Unferth) has no impact on the witch, most likely on the grounds that she had thrown some spell that made all man-made weapons be insufficient against her. Beowulf is compelled to battle her close by to-hand battle (sound well known?). Notwithstanding, after Beowulf tosses her to the floor, she assaults him.

Slide 6

Grendel's Mother versus Beowulf gets to be fatigued from the progressing fight, and as he falters, the witch pins him down, level on his back with his arms out to his sides. See that Beowulf is lying in a fascinating position – what shape is made by a man lying level on his back with his arms outstretched?

Slide 8

Grendel's Mother versus Beowulf While Grendel's mom is attempting to execute Beowulf, his networking mail spares him once more. The implication is that Beowulf's networking mail might be a Godly mediation that is sparing him from unavoidable passing. "also, Holy God, who sent him triumph, gave judgment for truth and right, Ruler of the Heavens, once Beowulf was recovered and battling."

Slide 9

Grendel's Mother versus Beowulf When Beowulf takes the overwhelming sword from the divider (that sword which was made by monsters), he is venturing into the shoes of an other-common rival to Grendel's mom. Beowulf is actually submerged, paralleling an immersion wherein one is washed down of the majority of their wrongdoings.

Slide 10

Grendel's mom versus Beowulf cuts off the leader of Grendel's mom, which murders her. He then goes looking for Grendel's body, and once he discovers it, he cuts off Grendel's head also. See how the light surges into the lobby after Grendel's mom is murdered. This may show God's support for Beowulf.
