In Grendel chapter 9
Answers 1Add Yours
One night, Grendel is sitting in the circle of graven gods when an old priest named Ork arrives. Grendel poses as one of the gods, The Destroyer, and asks the priest his views on the King of the Gods. The priest (who can somehow understand Grendel’s speech) gives two different explanations of the King of the Gods. First he describes the King of the Gods as the ultimate limitation and the ultimate irrationality, yet the basis for all reason; he also describes the King of the Gods as an absolute entity in relation who which all other entities measure their concreteness. Ork concludes with a universal philosophy that reality changes, and all alternatives limit the other choices for change.
