Beowulf took 15 men. After a feast was prepared for Beowulf, Grendel came and consumed one warrior before Beowulf ripped off his right arm. Beowulf hung hte arm on the wall above the door and was honored with a feast and gifts. On the next night Grendel's mother snatched Aeschere, Hrothgar's dearest counselor and grabbed Grendel's arm from above the door. Hrothgar and others went to the marshy lair, where they saw the head of Aeschere.

Unferth offered Beowulf his sword, the best in the land, forfeiting a chance to win imortality for himself. Beowulf sank into the murky waters and was encircled by vicious creatures. After an immense struggle he came to the cave of Grendel's mother. Beowulf failed with weapons and Unferth's sword, but grabbed her by the shoulder and threw her to the ground. Almost overcome, Beowulf grabbed a sword of a fallen warrior and plunged it into her heart.

Then swung his sword at Grendel and seperated his head from his body. Then as he swam the sword melted. Beowulf returned the sword to Unferth, without telling him of its failure. Beowulf soon became the King of the Geats.

The unlearned reader may think that this was just a competition to see who could swim the farthest.

But if read more carefully you can see that they were just frolicking in the water together. Finally after having read Beowulf 50 years ago in college in incomprehensible Olde English I now know the story. Going to name my new dog "Beowulf" as a tribute.
