Grendel shows an animalistic savagery as he destroys carelessly the mead hall, having no consideration for “civilization,” not treating the building as a building, but as another object, which he carelessly demolishes. “…loathsome tread,” “…baleful light,” (Beowulf 725) are descriptions of Grendel which portray how much a horrifyingly anomaly he is to the men. Hygelac’s men and Beow, who had lain in wait of the creature, are now thrown into a rather one-sided battle. Grendel attacked vehemently, “…mauled a man,…bit into his bone-lappings*,..and gorged on him in lumps.” It provides a gruesome insight to what occurred in the mead
But Beowulf is willing to. Not only does he plunge into the terrifying lake but he goes to fight Grendel’s mother alone. All the witnesses are amazed he completed such a task. Thorin demonstrates this similarly in his fight against Azog. Azog is a monstrous, pale orc that murders any foes, including Thorin’s grandfather and father, in his way of conquering others.
Panicked and distraught, the group splits and spirals into savagery. The conch is destroyed, along with organization and humanity, while the beast holds authority of the boys through fear. Lord of the Flies uses symbolism to show how an innocent society evolves into savagery. One of the most crucial pieces of symbolism is the conch. Ralph first found the
He is carnivorous and feeds on human flesh. He does not seem to have a limit when killing “(…) greedy and grim, he grabbed thirty men from their resting places and rushed to his lair, flushed up and inflamed from the raid, blundering back the butchered corpses” (ll.120-125). Finally, Grendel does not seem to have emotions about those he kills, he is "insensible to pain and human sorrow” (ll.119-120) and he never showed remorse”(l.137). By his beast-like physical appearance, as well as his gruesome actions and his lack of emotions, the monstrosity of Grendel becomes evident throughout the
The now-wailing man fell into a puddle, water mixing with his own blood, gazing in horror at the sight before him. Laci’s bones snapped and reshaped, her clothes ripped apart as her form grew larger, black claws sprouted from her fingertips. The blood in her mouth full of sharpening teeth tasted like honey. The last thought she had before the animalistic instincts took her over was of how he would look on tomorrow’s
They flew over the mountains where the Dragans were cramped, fighting for the right to caves. One unfortunate Dragan who rushed into the cave was smashed to fodder by an enormous cudgel. Another Dragan bit its sharp, yellow teeth hard into the throat of a Dragan who kept howling something in their language. A roar of a great beast came from inside the cave and all the Dragans around cleared the way for one particular Dragan. It rode on an enormous creature and had a huge following around it.
He awakens and goes to find his friends, who were also trapped by the giant spiders. He finds them to be in a web guarded by the giant spiders. He uses stones to scare the spiders away and then cuts them free with his sword. He then kills some of the giant spider and frightens the rest away. He
… Before moving away, he looked at Cecil and raised his foot, kicking him several times in the head to release his hateful venom” (108). Boll weevil is similar to war, as they both typically harm people for a hateful cause. Boll weevil kicks Cecil several times after he kills him, to show his hate toward him for not giving the money. Likewise, war is hateful because many soliders go out to fight, filled with hate, to fight for a one-sided cause. Both reprocussions as a result of Boll weevil’s actions, and war,
The slow, mindless, reanimated corpses have no ability to climb and are afraid of fire. All it takes is one bite in order to turn a human into a zombie. In order to kill them, the brain needs to be destroyed. Their origin is unknown. Faster zombies with the ability to talk or cooperate appear in the movie Return of the Living Dead.
This shows even more closely how similar it is to the horrifying monster Grendel, “Killing as often as he could, coming alone, bloodthirsty and horrible.” (pg.26, line 80-81); both monsters have the same goal. People can also become easily addicted like Grendel was addicted to killing. This puts not only themselves but the people around them in
The fight between Wes and Doc proved to be a bloody and exciting. The brawl ends with 10K coming in just in time to kill Wes’ zombified version. The two then approached Warren and Vasquez and together, they continued chasing Murphy, who attempted to commit suicide but ended up in a hotel pool full of zombies. The whole episode was full of exhilarating action from start to finish. But one of the scenes which stood out was Mack’s death, which showed his fighting spirit even until his last moment.
