Answers

The battle with Grendel is the first of many battles that Beowulf will fight during his epic journey. Throughout the entire epic poem Beowulf establishes himself as an honorable warrior. This is demonstrated in this particular battle because he learns that Grendel does not use weapons, but only fights hand to hand. Beowulf agrees to meet the monster on his own terms and fights him without using weapons.
