Grendel by John Gardner
Adapted by Melanie Kitchens O’Meara, Kayla Johnson, Sabrina Nacci, and Rachel Visintainer
John Gardner’s Grendel tells the story of the epic poem Beowulf from the monster’s point of view. Readers experience Grendel’s life through his own perspective and self-reflection. Through his interactions with the various creatures and humans he encounters, Grendel reveals how he became Beowulf’s monster. Our adaptation of Grendel encourages the audience to understand both sides of the tale while challenging them to relate the novel to current socio-political issues such as gender inequality and environmental concerns.
