Later that night, once everyone is asleep, Grendel enters Herot Hall to kill some of the men, but is instead mortally wounded by Beowulf. Because of Beowulf’s success and bravery, King Hrothgar, ruler of the land, gives him gifts and a feast in his honor. The second main point in the story Beowulf is the death of Grendel’s mother. When Grendel’s mother hears about the death of her son, she becomes angry and vows to avenge her son: “His mother’s sad heart, And her greed, drove her from her den on the dangerous Pathway of revenge.” (Raffel 1276 – 1278). This quote shows that Grendel’s mother most likely cared enough about Grendel that she wants to get revenge on those who killed her son.

In the time period where The Odyssey takes place, women are expected to be loyal and are punished severely if they are not. For men, however, the rules are a lot more lenient. When Odysseus arrives home and hears about what has been happening in his hall while he was away, he becomes furious. All of the suitors are killed swiftly with arrows or spears, but each maid sleeping with them is forced to “thrust her head into a noose and swung” because she is a “slut” and does not deserve “the clean death of a beast” (423). The suitors went after his wife and lived in his house for seven years, but they get a less severe punishment then the disloyal maids.
She mentions the night of Duncan’s murder when she says, “will these hands ne’er be clean [of blood]” (5.1.39). Her heart contains the guilt of all the evil deeds she has done, and her body is paying by not letting her sleep properly. The doctor says “Unnatural deeds do breed unnatural troubles” (5.1.65-65) referring to the trouble of sleeplessness Lady Macbeth faces from the unnatural deed of murdering many people. She is damned due to the feeling of guilt, which eats her up inside and causes her to lose sleep. This guilt is caused by all of the evil she does, and sees her husband do; ultimately, her sleeplessness is caused by the evil inside of her and around her.
