Beowulf Society

maintained this balance well. He displayed personal heroism while at the same time keeping his priorities towards the safety of his people. Beowulf's first attack on the monster Grendel displayed many qualities that were significant in a hero of that time. First of all, Beowulf was not called upon to save the Danes from Grendel.
