Grendel is a 1971 novel. It is a retelling of part of the Old English poem Beowulf from the perspective of the antagonist, Grendel. In Maryland it was challenged at Frederick County Schools for being "anti-christian, anti-moral, and violent." In California at Wasco High School the principal felt it was "profane," and created a restricted list of books, this being the first and only book on the list. If you are a collector of banned books, this novel is one you want on your library shelf.
