He heard about Hrothgar’s people getting slaughtered and knew he had to help. He gathered fourteen men to sail with him to Hrothgar’s land. After he arrived there, he waited for nightfall because he knew that is when Grendel would come. When Grendel came, Beowulf was ready. Beowulf fought Grendel with his bare hands. He had such a tight grip on Grendel’s arm, he actually ripped it off. Grendel escaped and dragged himself back to his lake where he rested there and later died.

Grendel’s arm was hanging there to help the people remember to be thankful for Beowulf’s bravery. It was Beowulf’s fate to fight Grendel and win this battle. This battle will prepare him for the upcoming battles in his life. The next battle, Beowulf will face will be against Grendel’s mother.
