Great fight scenes from literature

I'm looking for great fight scenes from literature. I've seen the questions on fight scenes from movies and I'm not looking for those (or TV or comics). Books only, please (I suppose plays count, but you can safely assume I'm familiar with every fight scene from Shakespeare).

I'm more interested in to-the-death type stuff than sport fighting (boxing, fencing), one-on-one (or small groups) than battles and hand weapons than firearms.
