You should be able to use these quotes in formulating your answer.

"Grendel snatched at the first Geat

He came to, ripped him apart, cut

His body to bits with powerful jaws,

Drank the blood from his veins, and bolted

Him down, hands and feet; death

And Grendel’s great teeth came together,

Snapping life shut."

"Out from the marsh, from the foot of misty

Hills and bogs, bearing God’s hatred,

Grendel came, hoping to kill

Anyone he could trap on this trip to high Herot."

"And his heart laughed, he relished the sight,

Intended to tear the life from those bodies"

"A path for his evil soul, but their points

Could not hurt him, the sharpest and hardest iron

Could not scratch at his skin, for that sin-stained demon

Had bewitched all men’s weapons, laid spells

That blunted every mortal man’s blade."
