Beowulf & Grendel's arm : this is just after Grendel attacks Beowulf, and with his strong grasp Beowulf rips Grendel's arm apart and hangs it up on the Rafters as. a reward or maybe even a trophy of accomplishment.
Does anyone know if this is an actual proverb? I haven't read Beowulf since high school.I chose this because this is something that Beowulf lived by. He wanted glory and to have fame while he was alive and long after he died.
