The Three Battles of Beowulf

             Beowulf was the ultimate tale of good versus evil. With villains
             who captured the very essence of animosity. They were murderers out
             for blood almost completely savage with revenge or jealousy on their
             mind. They could rip a man in half and feel no guilt. Unafraid of any
             man they attacked large groups of warriors, some of which were the
             kings best. The truth is they should have been they were not invincible,
             for every evil there is an equal good and that good was Beowulf.
             Beowulf through his life changed a great deal as a youth he was
             lazy and sluggish. As he got older he became stronger, and a fierce

             attacks were fueled by jealousy he couldn’t stand to hear the soldiers in
             the mead hall rejoicing and celebrating. He was an outcast on the outside
             looking in much like Cain who had been cast away due to his evil deed.
             Grendel is often referred to as the descendant of Cain. All this was
             before king Hrothgar asked Beowulf to help. He didn’t know it but that
             nights attack would be his last. he crept in to the mead hall while the
             men were sleeping and attacked grabbing a man ripping him in half and
             drinking his blood as Beowulf studied him pretending to be asleep.
