For the first time in his entire desolate life, he was able to find a creature to actually talk to. The dragon was a prolific philosopher and a straitlaced cynic. It conveyed eloquently to Grendel all its negative stances toward the human world. It attacked the foundation of humanity which is reason by claiming that humans heavily rely on incoherent observation to establish their logical system which consequently makes it futile and gibberish. It also proclaimed that time is the immortal enemy of mankind since it can wipe away all the splendor...

...Grendel through three stages of his life. The first stage is his childhood, which he spends innocently exploring his confined world, untroubled by the outside universe or philosophical questions. The second step, which decisively makes Grendel an adult, occurs when the bull attacks him, prompting him to realize that the world is essentially chaotic, following no pattern and governed by no discernible reason.

In this reading, Gardner establishes Grendel as a dark, but poetic spectator to man’s pretensions... The Reality of Grendel In its dire need for a new kind of hero, the...
