Awesome book. Suprised I never heard of it before.
Grendel is a 1971 parallel novel by American author John Gardner. It is a retelling of the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf from the perspective of the antagonist, Grendel. The novel deals with finding meaning in the world, the power of literature and myth, and the nature of good and evil.
We teach parts of that at my high school in conjunction with Beowulf. They used to teach the whole thing.
In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
