Grendel

I understood that the world was nothing: a mechanical chaos of casual, brute enmity on which we stupidly impose our hopes and fears. I understood that, finally and absolutely, I alone exist. All the rest, I saw, is merely what pushes me, or what I push against, blindly—as blindly as all that is not myself pushes back.

Grendel“, escrita por John Gardner y publicada en 1971, es una revisión del poema épico Beowulf, contando esta vez la historia desde el punto de vista de uno de los monstruos más célebres de la literatura. Muy interesante.
