She tells everyone to drink and relax. Grendel is a God-cursed creature that lives in the swamp. After more celebration and gifts and a sermon by Hrothgar warning of the dangers of pride and the mutability of time, Beowulf and his men return to Geatland.

Led by the fugitive, Beowulf and eleven Beowulf book his men seek out the dragon's barrow. As a result, the second scribe's script retains more archaic dialectic features, which allow modern scholars to ascribe the poem a cultural context. But who was he? Tolkien suggests that its total effect is more like a long, lyrical elegy than an epic. Heorot once again rings with merriment.
