I am Grendel ......

Rough Claws

Sharp Teeth

pungent and gamey smell

Sharp and bulky teeth

As a descendant of the biblical Cain, Grendel shares some of charateristics of human as well as of evil. His teeth and claws are thick and strong enough to rip a soldier approched him at the sight apart that it be described "Grendel snatched at the first Geat he came to, ripped him aprat, cut his body to bits with powerful jaws." The Grendel's attack on Herot was disastrous and mournful on account of all casualties and the wounded as aftermath of his assault

Grendel in this poem is depicted as a primitive creature that is carnivore and eats whatever he gets interested in and lives in shadow. It has sharp claws used to scratch and to tear his preys apart, such as humans, and rough tusks that can penetrate even a thick skin. Because of his horrible and horrendous looking, every soldier who was asleep woke up agaped and recolied due to the fear for Grendel. Also, the way Grendel fought and gouged soldiers made a mood of hell, and no rescue was expected at the moment. As a result of his attack, Hrothgar sat joyless and mourned the fate of his lost frineds and companions. So, in general, the atmosphere throughout the poem is very heavy and plaintive.
