Beowulf faces three different endeavors which means the lyric has three different climaxes. The first peak of the story occurs when Beowulf and his men are sleeping in the Heorot and Grendel comes to attack. After the monster kills one of the men, Beowulf grabs Grendel’s arm and rips it off and hangs it on the rafter. The next climax was when Beowulf goes to fight Grendel’s mother, who came back for revenge, killed King Hrothgar’s best friend, and stole back her son’s arm. The two put up a very good fight against each other until Beowulf finds a sword in Grendel’s mother’s kitchen and stabbed her to death.

In Atalanta, Meleager and Atalanta go hunting and caught so many animals that they even attracted Artemis’ unwanted attention. Artemis therefore grew upset and “molded a huge boar, mud-colored, with red evil eyes” (177) Atalanta and Meleager obviously slaughter an abundance of animals to get Artemis’ attention. It is unclear why Atalanta becomes upset with Meleager after killing her brother bear, but she is excited to hunt with Meleager.
According to the myth, Minos was imprisoning his enemies in the Labyrinth so that the Minotaur could eat them. The labyrinth was such a complicated construction that no one could ever find the way out alive.

Minos was infuriated, and demanded Aegeus the king of Athens to send seven men and women every year to the Minotaur to advert the plague caused by the death of Androgeus.

Beowulf then went home and became king of the Geats.

In the poem Grendel is said to be “conceived by a pair of … monsters born of Cain, murderous creatures banished by god”(Beowulf 19) and in the movie he is said to have been conceived by Hrothgar and Grendel’s mother. The setting of the battle against Grendel’s mother and the battle against the Dragon, in the movie detracts from my understanding of the poem.
