In the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf, the title character fights three monsters: Grendel, Grendel’s mother, and a dragon. Together, we will explore the symbolic meaning of each of these monsters, show what they each have to do with each other, and in the process grapple with the oldest epic in the English language.
