The Shapers Annie Chen, Tristan Dini, Vincent Cammisa, Margie Castejon, Caleb McCreary Literary Lens in Grendel In our podcast #2, our committed members took on a variety of literary lenses (pre-historic, ecocriticism, feminism, post-colonialism, and Marxist lens) to study and speak about. We related the lens into the events that we have read so far in the book. We discussed with each other how our different lenses also connect. Evidence: Chapter 2 (page 25-26) King and his soldiers threatened to kill Grendel. Chapter 6 (page 79) The Dragon gave immunity to Grendel from all weapons. Page 17: Maternal Instincts "I was her creation.” His mom loves him and he knows that she will always be there because “ of all the creatures I knew, in those days, only my mother really looked at me. .. She loved me, in some mysterious sense.” This inability to be able to speak with each other through words but creating a language through other senses like touch and eyesight. Page 27: She came to rescue him “ it was my mother! She came roaring down like thunder, screaming like a thousand hurricanes, eyes as bright as Dragonfire” this description is everything!
