It is the story of young men dying for old men’s war. Most of all, the story from Paths of Glory is that honor is not found by rank, but by values, even if it is lost by higher command. Throughout the movie, those in higher command see the path of glory as that of rank, not honor, this is exemplifled in General Mireau, Lieutenant Roget, and General Broulard. General Mireau only agrees to take the
He is an epic hero which means he had to face a low point. However, the low point does not define the hero, the action and recovery to the low point is what defines the hero. Knowledge of the future can cloud the judgement of even the most intelligent people. Odysseus makes his decision and he has to face the consequences and deal with the grief of losing his men in a tragic way. He learns that his actions can determine the life of others, or at least how they live their final days.
The Hero Cycle brings order to the necessary journey of a hero, whether it may be the many unorthodox versions of a hero. The cycle contains elements that follows a primary figure in Orson Scottcard’s science fiction novel, Ender’s Game, named Andrew “Ender” Wiggin, who is six in the beginning of the novel; he deals with the repercussions of being a third child, a forbidden stigma. When earth is once again threatened by the buggers, an alien species that have previously been defeated by Mazer Rackham during the first and second invasions, Colonel Graff of the International Fleet (a government organization established to protect Earth from the buggers) recruits Ender in hopes that he really is the key to success that the I.F. has always anticipated, but he must leave his parents and older siblings, Peter and Valentine. He faces many ordeals while in Battle School and Command School, like the many computer simulations, battles in null gravity, and the isolation placed on him by the school administrators.
Why he would go on to serve his father’s killer is unclear to Natan, but he recognizes that it is part of his destiny. Loyalty and betrayal thus emerge as themes in the story. David is a warrior, but one with shortcomings and a high opinion of himself. In his vision of the future, only his and Natan’s fates matter. Natan promises that David will have an empire that will withstand the test of time.
After this book, there is only one more left until I finish The Heroes of Olympus series. After I am finished, I'm going to start another series of his called, “The Red Pyramid.” In this book, Percy and Annabeth are plunged into Tartarus with nobody except each other. They are in vast danger because all monsters that are killed are then dissolved in Tartarus. Since Percy and Annabeth have killed so many monsters during The Titan War and quests, Percy and Annabeth are number one on all the monster’s killing lists. If any monster finds them in Tartarus, they are screwed because Tartarus is already draining all their powers, making them exhausted and vulnerable.

He hears the news that there is a monster attacking people in the Land of Dane, and no one has been able to fight him, and whoever tries they end up dying. So then he thinks that he should be the one and then he Call’s to the Adventure, so then Beowulf argues with his father about going to the Land of Dane, but his father thinks that it is too dangerous, but despite the fact of his father, BeoWulf scurries to kill the evil monster, whose name is Grendel.

However, his greatest denial comes when he purposely tries to forget about Gene jouncing the limb and tells Gene “I don’t know, I must have just lost my balance” (Knowles 66). As wartime creeps closer, suddenly his fake reality must disappear. Phineas comes to admit to Gene that the war exists and confides to him that “I’ll hate it everywhere if I’m not in this war!” but if some organization would allow him to enlist despite being disabled, “Then there would have been a war” (Knowles 190). Later, Brinker and several other classmates hold a mock trial for the incident at the tree. During this trial, Phineas begins to grow more and more angry as his classmates force him to admit to himself that Gene meant to jostle the
He completes his goal to be remembered in the minds of his people through his slaying of Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven. But, he loses his close companion Enkidu and his chance at a restored youth. He goes from being someone who throws his weight around and uses his strength to take what he wants to someone who is respected and revered as a hero by the people of his town. However, I do not see him to be a hero. Yes, he changes for the better and completes heroic acts along the way, but many things he does are done to help improve his reputation or used to show off.
