Beowulf then waited till the monster (Grendel) comes to attack at night again so he could fight and try to kill him, but he fatally wounds Grendel and later he did die. Another trial was when Grendel’s mother and Beowulf fought, and then killed her as well. He came back to Hrothgar’s mead hall with the trophy of Grendel’s head along with the arm that he already previously had. Beowulf got praised for the mighty battle and saving the rest of Hrothgar’s men.
All Grendel could think was to run away. Beowulf ripped Grendel’s arm clear off, killing the mighty beast once and for all. After the death of Grendel, Beowulf learned about Grendel’s mother.

Odysseus shows considerable hubris when he brags to King Alconis about slaughtering the small village of Ismarus. Odysseus claims that he and his men “stormed that place,” enslaved the women, and slaughtered those who fought. (Homer 43).

He asks Guildenstern and Rosencrantz to speak with Hamlet and report his every action (Act 2, Scene 2).
The audience sees an intense struggle for Beowulf to conquer the horrendous monster. When it seems as though Beowulf’s life is coming to an end, he is able to pull through and decapitate Grendel’s mother. Although this seems as just another fight or obstacle that Beowulf faces, the climax actually takes place when he returns to the surface of the water. The men waiting for Beowulf were extremely worried about how he was doing underwater due to the blood surfacing the water. When Beowulf breaks the surface of the water, the men were extremely ecstatic.
Frankie was adamant about the quality of the sound at the warehouse and insisted on Richard Long, a legendary sound man, to design the sound system for the warehouse. Wayne Williams remembers “Frankie had the best sound system in Chicago”. The music played at the warehouse was called “Warehouse Music” and eventually called “House Music”.

When Unferth approached Beowulf and announced that he lost a swimming contest to Breca, Beowulf immediately defended himself and told Unferth what actually happened. According to Beowulf he was in full armor, he was carrying a sword, and fought nine sea monsters on his journey.

In the end, when Beowulf must face the dragon, he chooses to go alone rather than have his kinship assist him. His prideful nature prompts Beowulf to battle the dragon solo thereby securing the fame and glory of the win for himself.
