This emphasizes how Beowulf brutally hurt Grendel leading him to his death. Grendel then drags himself to “his doom to the demons’ mere”(845). It is as if we hear Grendel falling because the word doom is heavy like a body falling. The slight consonance, “water wallowed”(846) displays an image of Grendel’s home filling with blood exposing his end. There are stressed syllables and enjambment to paint the picture of Grendel’s bloody home, “loathsome upthrows and overturnings of waves and gore”(847-848).

Complete isolation is not the only contributing factor to Grendel’s savage raids and aggressive behavior. The label and detestation that he receives from the humans themselves prove this. Ironically, the society who dubbed Grendel “evil” is the same society that tormented him to the point of consuming humans.
