Out of anger she slices her sons head off and seduces Beowulf, she tells him to give her a son since he killed her only son. Grendel’s mother tells Beowulf as long as the horn stays in her lair she will not attack his Hrothgar’s people again. Beowulf brings Grendel’s head back to show the Danes and lies about killing Grendel’s mother. In the poem, Beowulf swims to the bottom of the lake knowing Grendel’s mother would follow him. She meets him at the bottom of the lake, they begin fighting at some point she gets the best of him, but Beowulf gets back up and starts winning.
Later, after Beowulf defeated Grendel, he was faced with the task of defeating Grendel's mother. Grendel's mother went to Hrothgar and began antagonizing the people that lived there because they killed her son and she was very angry. Beowulf went after her to the lake and killed her, even with the disadvantage of being underwater. After Beowulf kills Grendel's mother, he says "if God had not helped me" (Seamus Heaney, Line 1657), which means that he could have possibly not been successful if God had not been there to support him during the battle." Fifty years later, Beowulf reaches success again as a king by defeating a greedy dragon that lived underground and started burning houses because someone went into his lair and took some of his possessions (Seamus Heaney, Line 2220-2334).

Beowulf fights the dragon so that the people he rules can be safe and he is willing to risk his life. In the end, both the dragon and Beowulf die. THEMES: Inevitability of death- When Beowulf and the Dragon both kill each other the cycle of losing a great king begins again. Scyld Scefing died and the kingdom was overtaken with evil. “Such is the feud and enmity, the cruel malice of men, for which I look, in which the Swedish people will come against us, when they learn that our lord is reft of life, who aforetime did guard against those that hated him his treasury and realm, after the fall of mighty men did rule the sea loving Geats, accomplishing the profit of people, yea, and before all did knightly deeds.” This shows that Beowulf was going to end and the fate of his people was inevitable.
All of these characters seek revenge for the death of their fathers by taking the matter into their own hands: Fortinbras seeks war against Denmark (former King Hamlet killed Fortinbras’ father), while Laertes returns from Paris to Eslionor to fight for his dead father 's honor. However, the way these two characters carry themselves is much different than the way Hamlet does. He, himself speaks of Laertes and Fortinbras as people who are basic contrasts to him. The reader understands this in Act IV, Scene iv where Hamlet describes Fortinbras and his valiant character and promises to become somewhat more like him. Hamlet says, "Witness this army of such mass and charge/ Led by a delicate and tender prince,/ Whose spirit with divine ambition puff 'd/ Makes mouths at
Until a hero named Beowulf hears the Geats cries and comes to their rescue. Beowulf arrives and devises a plan to kill the beast at night when he comes to attack the soldiers while they are sleeping. When the devil spawn, Grendel, appears in the hall slaughtering warrioriors, Beowulf attacks him with surprise ripping the monster’s arm from his socket. The monster escapes and later dies. Soon after Grendel’s death, the warriors encounter his mother.
He claims that Beowulf has lost the swimming competition between him and Breca. This affects Beowulf because his reputation is vital to him. Beowulf fires back with a reminder that Unferth killed his own kin. “[...] and the forthright Unferth, admired by all for his mind and courage, although under a cloud for killing his brothers, reclined near the king” (1164-1167). To prove himself, Beowulf informs the King Hrothgar of his new expedition, killing Grendel.

Hamlet is essentially a story based on revenge. The play opens with the outside guards seeing the phantom of the recently deceased King Hamlet. When his son is summoned to him, he tasks him to get revenge for his death. Young Hamlet then spends the following days planning every move of his revenge until he accidentally kills the father of Laertes in an act of misguided rage. This mix up causes Hamlet’s well thought out plan to spiral out of control and puts Laertes on a quest to avenge his father’s murder just as Hamlet is.
When Hamlet was talking with his mother,he heard a voice and killed it with his sword. He thought this voice was King Claudius but it was Laertes’ father,Polonius. After Hamlet accidentally kills Polonius, Laertes' father, Laertes seeks vengeance and plots together with Claudius to bring about the death of Hamlet in a fixed sword fight. Not only that,but Laertes also seeks to avenge his sister’s death as well. Laertes said this to Hamlet, “The devil take thy soul.” (4.1.252).
