Spoiler alert: hero slays monsterBeowulf. If you didn't have to read it in high school, now's your chance. It's about a hero and a monster and that monster's mommy and a dragon. Initially Grendel, the monster, kills the humans because they have a loud party and don't invite him. Good rule of thumb for apartment dwellers: invite the neighbors to your parties to prevent getting into this epic mess in the first place. But Beowulf prevails and the moral of the story ends up being, "If you interrupt someone while they're drinking mead, you're going to be sorry." Or something like that. Don't quote us on that. But it's a good rule for the Renaissance festival, too.
But, you know, you should read it yourself. Just not in Old English. This adaptation / translation is brought to life by Santiago García and David Rubin. It's true to the original story. And it's bloody. Very bloody. When the monster manages to flee the title character only because the title character is left holding the monster's arm, that's a good sign there's going to be some carnage.
