Correct response: Who is Grendel?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Grendel is the monster from the epic poem Beowulf.
Beowulf is generally considered to be the oldest surviving long story in Old English, dating back to somewhere between 700 and 1000 A.D.
Back to Grendel, he is the monster who has attacked King Hrothgar’s mead-hall; the young hero Beowulf is able to slay the monster.
Differing translations exist for the text; as an example, Project Gutenberg’s version describes it as “The monster of evil / Greedy and cruel tarried but little, / Fell and frantic, and forced from their slumbers / Thirty of thanemen”.
