Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Miscellany Grendel
OP Things are slow today, so I thought I'd post some interesting words and phrases from the John Gardner version.
Grendel speaking of deer: "That is their happiness: they see all life without observing it."
"...blackening the night with my stench..."
"...I am secretly unfooled."
"...fuliginous riddling hex..."
"...pale skin of words that closes me in like a coffin."
"...it was my own language, but spoken in a strange way, as if the sounds were made by brittle sticks, dried spindles, flaking bits of shale."
