Product Description
On the subject of his novel, Grendel, John Gardner once said in an interview that he �wanted to go through the main ideas of Western Civilization � which seemed to me about� twelve? � and go through them in the voice of [Beowulf�s Grendel].�

This is a handout I created that covers, chapter by chapter, some of the "main ideas" Gardner refers to. These ideas include (but are not limited to) Astrology, Solipsism, Sophism, Nihilism, Old and New Testament theology, and, of course, Existentialism.
