The story does not tell how much he got therein, but men deem that it must have been something great.

— In the meantime Grettir went up the cave ; he kindled a light and examined the place.

When a third part of the night had passed, he Tieard a great noise without, then one went up upon the house, and afterwards came down and opened the door.

Grettir when told of the hauntings rode to the place {foorhallsstasir) and in the night awaited Glam r in the h all.

In some points, it should be noted, this important and highly instructive version presents an obscuration of the original folk- tale elements ; ^ viz. ^ The former is used by the giant, the latter by Beowulf ; a seax is used also by Grendel's mother (1545), as a sax is several times by Grettir. In the original form of the story, it appears, the male demon had been merely wounded ; when the hero had made his way to the dwelling place of the monsters, he put the wounded enemy to death (and afterwards killed the mother). The theory that the Anglo-Saxon poet worked up different versions (relating to Grendel and to Grendel' s mother respectively) has been repeatedly proposed as a means of accounting for disparities of the narrative ; see especially Schneider (L 4. Yet only in the Hrolfssaga do we find a story at all comparable to the Grendel part placed in a historical setting comparable to that in the Anglo-Saxon epic and attributed to a person who is possibly after all identical with Beowulf himself. Haldan) figu red also in Norse arcounts ss the fathe r "*^ Hrn^ - gar (Hroarr) and Halga (Helgi), is abundantly proved, though his position became in time much confused.

1457.^ The latter analogy, how- ever, is not complete and may be merely accidental, especially as the separate elements of both compounds are well known in their respective languages. Again, Grendel, though (mortally wounded by Beowulf and) found dead in the cave, is as it were slain again (1576 ff.) and definitely disposed of by beheading. 23) has not nearly so much in common with the Grendel fight as Grettir's adventure in the cave has with Beowulf's second encounter.

But thereby was a rock jutting out, and thereon he gat ; a great cave was under the force, and the river fell over it from the sheer rocks.

942 ff., but the coincidence need not be considered of importance. S An explanation of his peculiar name may be found in the fact that, according to the later Skjqldungasaga (Par. Icelandic sources have it that he lost his life through his brother (Fr6«i).6 Two sons of Halfdan(r), Hroarr .(Roe) and Helgi (Helgo), are regularly known in the North, besides in a few versions a daughter Signy who married a jarl n amed Ssevil,' — probably a mistake for Onela, the Swedish king. English lineage of Hroar's wife in the Hr Slfssaga (ch. The Sandhau- gar episode in particular gives a strikingly similar description • of the monster's cave under a waterfall, and moreover seems to show a verbal agreement in the use of (the nonce word) heptisax, recalling the (equally unique) haftmece, Beonju. The mother of the slain Grendel leaves her cave, appears in the hall, and avenges her son in heroic fashion, — an evident amplification (including a partial repetition) of the narrative. Different and in a certain respect closer is the relation of Beoiuulf to the late Hrolfssa ga (see Par. It is true, Be'Svar's con- test with a pecuuar fanciful beast (chap. The points of contact between the foregoing extracts and the Beoixiulf are unmistakable and need not be gone over in detail. — The name 6f Wealhpeow's family, Helmingasy possibly points to East Anglia (Binz 177 f. The name Wealhpeow (whose second element need 'not be inter- preted literally) may have been constructed as a characterizing one like Angelpeow in the Mercian genealogy (Par.
