In the textbook Beowulf killed Grendel’s mother for the glory, but in the movie he lied about killing her for his own personal desires. Beowulf killed Grendel’s
This battle involves losing his sword which he thought would kill the mother, and tossing her to the floor with little to no energy when “anger doubled his strength,” stated in lines 510 and 511 on page 54.

Through all the years that the story of Beowulf has been told or read, people discuss whether it is an epic or just another story.

There were many differences between the book and the movie. The main difference is in the book Beowulf kills Grendel's mother and in the movie they sleep together. A second difference is Beowulf did not have a son because he kills Grendel’s mother before he could sleep with her. Also in the poem, another difference was that Beowulf kills her with a giant sword. Another difference between the movie and the book is that Beowulf didn't cut his own arm off to kill his only son.
Beowulf comes to Herot with some of his army and waits in the town hall for Grendel to come. When he shows up, Beowulf and his men attack the monster before its arm is cut off and it eventually dies. Not long after Grendel is killed, his mother comes and continues what he started. Beowulf tells the king that he will find Grendel’s mother and kill her for him. He goes to Grendel’s mothers home and finds her there but not as he had expected.
In the book Beowulf and the movie the 13th warrior, there are many differences and similarities.The differences is the religion aspect and the monster they were fighting.The similarity is that they both fought the monster at the same place. In the essay I will talk more about the similarity and the differences.It is quite interesting what all similarities and differences that there are. One of the differences is that they were fighting a monster in the book but in the movie they were fighting a man, that acted like an animal. In the book the monster was a dragon that they had to fight. In the movie the monster was like a man, but wore animal skin clothes and had paint all over there face.
In the book, Beowulf actually strangled Grendel’s Mother, and he did it with his bare hands. In the movie, though, he went to Grendel’s Mother with the task of killing her, but instead, he fell in love with her. Another example of how there is much contrast was when in the movie, Hrothgar was actually the father of Grendel, while in the book, Cain, was the father of Grendel. A third difference was when in the book, Beowulf decided to go back to his beloved home in the land of the Geats after he had killed the hideous mother of Grendel, but in the movie, instead he stayed in the kingdom of Hrothgar, in the land of the Danes and became their king. One final example of the discrepancies between the two plots was when in the book, Beowulf goes against the mystical fire-breathing dragon who was just another beast that Beowulf had to kill.
Many people get killed in Macbeth, La Belle Dame Sans Merci, “Idi Amin Biography”, and in “Vlad the Impaler.” When lady Macbeth rings the bell, that signals for Macbeth to kill King Duncan.

In Macbeth however, Shakespeare follows the formula of a tragedy precisely and entirely different from Miller’s tragedy, including brutal murders and death throughout. Macbeth kills as he is a soldier, he kills King Duncan and anybody in his way. There is even violence through word choice as his manipulative wife says that she’d kill her own child ”Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this." (1:7, 63-65) Shakespeare uses every moment in the play to use physical violence as a aristotle tragedy should. Death is present in almost every scene of Macbeth through the weather, the animals, etc.
In a different land, a slave stole treasure from a dragon, incurring the wrath and fury when he would awaken. The dragon would roam the lands destroying villages and kingdoms due to the dishonor of being robbed. Eventually, the dragon came across Beowulf's land and destroyed his home and hall, being defenseless against a dragon's fire Beowulf could do nothing.
