11. gave him gifts: a good king he!
I agree with you when you talk about how early on we do sympathize with Grendel. I also agree with the sentence, "He got a cruel, bloody death, but this death was not dealt without sympathy." I think that was one of the best sentences through your paper. The best paragraph in your paper is the last. You wonderfully summarized your thoughts.

I agree with your statement about how we sympathize with Grendel, however, I feel we do this out of self pity for him rather than understanding his situation. Also, I like your last paragraph about how Grendel found his inner self when confronted by Beowulf. It adds to your conclusion about how Grendel changed completely from start to finish of the novel.
