Today we read about 150 lines or so… just enough to finally see Grendel attack!
If you were absent, please read to get caught up. I included the lines we covered if that helps and you can always view the Beowulf Resource Page for extra materials.
As you read, remember to look for the following:
- More Kennings and examples of Alliteration.
- The religious/good vs evil motifs are popping up more and more.
- Pay attention to the origin story of Grendel’s ancestory, the image and description of who/what he is, and the reason he is vengeful.
Here are some of the lines we covered for you to look at:Beowulf-70-195
