Probably all the drink. They probably knew that if they tried to hit the grendel it could strike a fatal blow on the wrong side.
Grendel is a demon who bewitched all of mortal man's weapons. No weapon made by man can penetrate his skin.
Beowulf gets his final revenge on Gendel by cutting off his head
Beowulf's final boast is that he will fight the dragon once it comes out into the open. He fights the dragon and kills it, with the help of Wiglaf. However, Beowulf is mor…tally wounded in the battle and dies.
All of Beowulf's men desert him except Wiglaf in his final battle against the dragon. The narrator chastises them for their cowardice and so does Wiglaf in a speech. Beowulf… kills the dragon but he is assisted by Wiglaf. Beowulf receives a mortal wound and orders Wiglaf to bring him treasure they had won from the dragon's tower lair. Beowulf also instructs the thane on his burial wishes which he executes very well.
In the novel Beowulf, the character Beowulf asks for a tower to be made for him because in that time period, it was a symbol of importance and power. By having his own tow…er, Beowulf would always be remembered as powerful and intimidating.
God's sense of justice. In the Burton Raffel translation of Beowulf God's decisions and gifts are mentioned a lot. The first time this book shows up in history it is after mon…ks edited it, therefore scholars believe that they added references to god and Christianity. This is likely because when this book was written in the 700s Denmark was not full of Christians.
fighting the dragon
It's Grendel. He doesn't really have a plan other than to enjoy the evening (irritating the monster) and wait for him to attack.
Beowulf generally the same problems in both the epic poem, and the CGI movie. Beowulf is a flawed man, often overexaggerating previous accomplishments. For example, he claimed… to have slain 9 sea monsters while having a swiming competition against Brecca. It was later said that he previously boasted about killing 3 sea monsters. Another example, is when he fell for temptation for the mermaid, as well as for Grendel's mother.
He tells them what happened at the end of the swimming match, which was him being attacked by 3-9 "Sea Monsters"
When Beowulf was fighting the dragon he went up in flames. His men deserted him even though they always boasted they'd fight with him, for him, etc because of all he did for t…hem. The only comrade that did not desert Beowulf is Wiglaf. Wiglaf chided the men and aided Beowulf in killing the dragon then upholding Beowulf's wishes of building a tower so all men would know who he was, after he died.
In Epic Poetry
"In his far-off home Beowulf, Higlac's Follower and the strongest of the Geats-greater and stronger than anyone anywhere in this world-heard how Grendel filled nights with hor…ror and quickly commanded a boat fitted out, proclaiming that he'd go to that famous king. Would sail across the sea to Hrothgar now when help was needed."
