A Mother's Revenge- Gary R. Burzell
The short story " A Mother's Revenge" talks about a Black Widow spider, that saw her babies being killed by a man, so she wanted revenge. She didn't even cared if he was going to kill her too, she just wanted bit him. This story is very similar to "Beowulf" in the aspect of the "mother" do anything for revenge her children death even if that means put her like in risk."If the Black Widow was lucky, she could bite him once or twice and still get away before he smashed her with his hands. That's if she was lucky. But it really didn't matter much.
Just yesterday, she had watched in horror as he killed her babies. The poison spray had come, and there had been nothing she could do to save them. Their cries for help still haunted her, and she knew she would never forget the feeling of helplessness as she heard them scream in pain." In "Beowulf" the scene is repeated when we compare the attempt to avenge the death of her son, Grandel.
"Mother uses social media to get revenge against daughter's alleged abuser"
"Father vows revenge on murderer who killed his son"
"The mother who gave up her life to save her baby"
National Art Gallery, National Museum of the Philippines, Manila" is a sculpture that represent the predatory colonial relationship between Spain, the crocodile , and the helpless citizens of the Philippines, the puppy being bitten. The puppy's mother represents the patriots who are working to avenge the injustice inflicted on the people. In this piece the animals don't represent themselves, but the idea of a mother protecting and her kid is the same when we compere to "Beowulf". The same scene is happening in both of the history but with distinct reasons.
