Please help with Beowulf Comprehension questions. I just need a general idea to write around, something impressive.

1. Why did Beowulf decide to free the Danes from Grendel?

2. Why did Beowulf fight Grendel with his bare hands? What does this reveal about his character?

3. Why was it harder for Beowulf to kill Grendel's mother than Grendel himself?

4. Which do you think was the hardest of the three adventures? (Grendel, Grendel's mother, dragon) Give reasons for your answers.
