Grendel by John Gardner Summary

«Le Grendel de John Gardner est à la saga de Beowulf ce que l'Ulysse de James Joyce est à L'Odyssée d'Homère. Dans les deux cas, il s'agit d'une complète trahison. Cette violence faite au texte original n'est rendue possible que par une claire compréhension de l'œuvre, et se justifie par un impératif supérieur, celui de la création littéraire. Chez John Gardner, l'acte de réécriture se double d'une dette jamais acquittée à l'égard de son frère dont il est le meurtrier.» Xavier Mauméjean. Grendel, qui narre l'épopée de Beowulf du point de vue du monstre, s'est imposé en moins de quarante ans comme un des grands classiques de la fantasy anglo-saxonne. Court, brutal, d'un humour ravageur, ce conte philosophique frappe le lecteur avec la force d'une comète, dans l'éblouissement.

Grendel and His Mother by Nicholas E. Brink Summary

One cause of the behavioral, emotional and mental torment in a person's life is the psychological trauma that results from the actions and words of parents and others. This volume, "Grendel and His Mother: Healing the Traumas of Childhood Through Dreams, Imagery and Hypnosis" by Nicholas E. Brink examines the effect of such trauma on a child's development and how the resulting torment eventually brings this child as an adult to psychotherapy. This trauma may be as subtle as a parental sigh of disappointment or as direct as physical or sexual abuse. Six clients are then led on a journeying through the unconscious mind using dream work, hypnosis and imagery in the course of therapy to uncover and heal these traumas to free the client of torment.

Grendel by John C. Gardner Summary

When Grendel is drawn up from the caves under the mere, where he lives with his bloated, inarticulate hag of a mother, into the fresh night air, it is to lay waste Hrothgar's meadhall and heap destruction on the humans he finds there. What else can he do? For he is not like the men who busy themselves with God and love and beauty. He sees the infuriating human rage for order and recognises the meaninglessness of his own existence. GRENDEL is John Gardner's masterpiece; it vividly reinvents the world of Beowulf. In Grendel himself, a creature of grotesque comedy, pain and disillusioned intelligence, Gardner has created the most unforgettable monster in fantasy.

The Grendel Project by Brent Kitching Summary

Most people live with the asumption that man is the high point of life on Earth. Our technologies and ingenious inventions give further credability to what seems so self evident. Yet there is a dark side to our progress. We are exploiting the planet and it is inevitable that many resources will run out. Could man evolve differently? Is there a higher being in each of us that needs to be honored? Can we only do this by cultivating a different part of our mind? Journey along with Professor Eric Parker as he encounters a revolutionary discovery, the missing link, and weaves a new meaning to the age old question of what it means to be fully human. Will Parker be able to escape the death threats of fundamentalist zealots? Will he be able to save this recently discovered species from extinction fabricated by those who reject the idea of evolution in favor of special creation ? Will Parker find a way to make his life a more sacred experience? See how one person's search for meaning can survive in a world of conventional answers.

We’re Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. Things that go bump in the night, the monsters you thought didn’t exist? We battle them and keep you safe. But some supernatural baddies are just too big to contain, even for us… When I moved to New York to become a world famous journalist, I never imagined that snagging a job at a seedy tabloid would change my career path from trashy reporter to undercover agent. I’m Makenna Fraser, a Seer for SPI. I can see through any disguise, shield, or spell that a paranormal pest can come up with. I track down creatures and my partner, Ian Byrne, takes them out. Our cases are generally pretty routine, but a sickle-wielding serial killer has been prowling the city’s subway tunnels. And the murderer’s not human. The fiend in question, a descendant of Grendel—yes, that Grendel—shares his ancestor’s hatred of parties, revelry, and drunkards. And with New Year’s Eve in Times Square only two days away, we need to bag him quickly. Because if we don’t find him—and the organization behind him—by midnight, our secret’s out and everyone’s time is up. FIRST IN A NEW SERIES

Grendel's Curse by Alex Archer Summary

A sword of legend in the hands of an extremist… Skalunda Barrow, Sweden, has long been rumored to be the final resting place of the legendary Nordic hero Beowulf. And there's something of Beowulf's that charismatic and zealous right-wing politician Karl Thorssen wants very badly. Intent on getting his hands on the mythical sword Ngling, Sweden's golden-boy politico puts together a team to excavate the barrow. A team that American archaeologist Annja Creed manages to finagle her way onto. She wouldn't miss this possible discovery for anything.

What his followers don't know—and Annja is beginning to suspect—is just how far Thorssen will go to achieve his rabid amibitions. When Thorssen marks Annja for death, she quickly realizes that this is much more than a political game. And the only way to survive is to match Thorssen's sword with her own.
