The Final Battle  from Beowulf  translated by Burton Raffel               Epic 6               14 The Final Battle from Beowulf translated by Burton Raffel Epic 6 14 . . . Then he said farewell to his followers, Each in his turn, for the last time: “I’d use no sword, no weapon, if this beast Could be killed without it, crushed to death 670 Like Grendel, gripped in my hands and torn Limb from limb. But his breath will be burning Hot, poison will pour from his tongue. The Final Battle  from Beowulf  translated by Burton Raffel               Epic 6               14
The Battle with Grendel from Beowulf translated by Burton Raffel Epic 4 Out from the marsh, from the foot of misty Hills and bogs, bearing God’s hatred, Grendel came, hoping to kill 395 Anyone he could trap on this trip to high Herot. He moved quickly through the cloudy night, Up from his swampland, sliding silently Toward that gold-shining hall. He had visited Hrothgar’s Home before, knew the way— 400 But never, before nor after that night, Found Herot defended so firmly, his reception So harsh. He journeyed, forever joyless, Straight to the door, then snapped it open, Tore its iron fasteners with a touch, 405 And rushed angrily over the threshold. He strode quickly across the inlaid Floor, snarling and fierce: His eyes Gleamed in the darkness, burned with a gruesome Light.

All older and wiser heads warned you 245 Not to, but no one could check such pride.

A powerful monster, living down In the darkness, growled in pain, impatient As day after day the music rang Loud in that hall, the harp’s rejoicing 5 Call and the poet’s clear songs, sung Of the ancient beginnings of us all, recalling The Almighty making the earth, shaping These beautiful plains marked off by oceans, Then proudly setting the sun and moon 10 To glow across the land and light it; The corners of the earth were made lovely with trees And leaves, made quick with life, with each Of the nations who now move on its face.
