Beowulf vs Grendel

‘Time and again Beowulf’s warriors… kept striking out on every side… When they joined the struggle there was something she could not have known at the time, that no blade on earth, no blacksmith’s art could ever damage their demon opponent.’

– From Seamus Heaney’s verse translation of Beowulf.
