Use specific details from the passages to help support your answers. 1. Why weren't the warriors as frightened by Grendel's mother as by Grendel? Because she was a woman and not a man. "No female, no matter How fierce, could have come with a man's strength, Fought with the power and courage men fight with . . ." 2. What does this lesser fear of her reveal about the Anglo-Saxons? That men were considered the muscle in their society. 3. According to Beowulf, what is "the noblest of goals"? He thinks that fame is the noblest of goals. "Each of us will come to the end of this life on earth; he who can earn it should fight for the glory of his name; fame after death is the noblest of goals." 4.
