Product Description
No matter how much of either text your students have read, this essay prompt will guide them to think about the differences between the Anglo Saxon epic poem, Beowulf and John Gardner's Grendel.

If they have read long portions or short portions, students should easily be able to go back to the text and cite examples of things like imagery, figurative language, and the differing tone of each author.

This can be used as a formal essay assignment or simply as a way to engage students during class with a lengthy informal writing assignment.
