So you're a hero, I'm impressed. I've never seen a live hero before. I thought they were only in poetry, Ah, ah, it must be a terrible burden, though, being a hero-glory reaper, harvester of monsters! Everybody always watching you, weighing you, seeing if you're still heroic. You know how it is-he he! Sooner or later the harvest virgin will make her mistake in the haystack. [Picks up apple and starts polishing it.] And the awful inconvenience; always having to stand erect, always having to find noble language! It must wear on a man. But no doubt there are compensations. The pleasant feeling of vast superiority, the easy success with women. [Pause] And the joy of self-knowledge, that's a great compensation! The easy and absolute certainty that whatever the danger, however terrible the odds, you'll stand firm, behave with the dignity of a hero, yea, even to the grave! [Throws apple]

Adapted from John Gardner's Grendel.
