Question:

Why did Grendel attack Heorot?

Answer:

Grendel is your classic "outcast." Night after night he hears the Danes loudly celebrating in Herot (the mead hall) and it drives him mad with rage and envy. So at the root of his attacks are the very human emotions of sadness, isolation and envy.
