What were your impressions of the First Chapter from Grendel? Why does Grendel describe his life as "the deadly progression of moon and stars" (p. 8) , "depressed" (p.10), " and "life's curse" (p.11). How does he describe his mother? Can you think of anyone in our society that might describe their own life in the same way? Why?
