“Fictions of Masculine Identity in Beowulf” contextualizes Beowulf’s encounter with Grendel’s mother with literature about gender identity construction in Anglo-Saxon England. The fight with Grendel’s mother reveals a central anxiety in the text about the role of military prowess in constructing a fragile and disjointed identity.
