We will define motherly love according to the She-Devil. We will also explore her actions feelings and reactions through out the tale. Based upon her actions we will investigate her motherly instinct to the death of her son, and how it ties in with human motherly instinct.
First, what is motherly love Is it the instinct that females gain after having a child, or the natural intuition Well maybe it is a combination of many things that only a mother can understand, realize and embrace. There are so many queries and yet so little answers on this subject. Some of which will never be answered. However, the story we will discuss is John Gardner?s ?Grendel?.
The basis of story is the mother of Grendel, the She-Devil. The She-Devil enters as Grendel is killing and terrorizing Herot village and soon after the fight with Beowulf. With Grendel?s Mother, the thanes feel little attack. We see the warriors settling down to sleep in Herot after the huge celebration of Beowulfs victory over Grendel. They seem unaware of the fact that Grendel has kin who may come to avenge his death.
