Beowulf Fights Grendel!

Today we looked at the battle between Grendel and Beowulf.  We discussed what each character is thinking at the moment of battle.  Was it right for Beowulf to kill Grendel? Should he have simply let Grendel go?

For homework, please retell the story of the fight on lines 662-835 from Grendel’s perspective.  Make sure you write in the first person. What is Grendel thinking? Feeling? Make me feel empathy for Grendel.
