Like the end of the video, Odysseus got kill by Cyclops’s father. Otherwise than both medias showed that Odysseus has strong intelligence, strategy, and leadership during the escape. Odysseus is the symbol of intelligent in the story. He considered more perfectly and thoughtful than his colleagues. Both text and video demon that Odysseus and his crews were going to landed on a secret island and find out the truth of it, but they accidentally got attract into a monster's cave and got beset with crisis.
This proves the protagonists wit because, in the story, the Cyclops barred Ulysses and his men in a cave with a giant boulder, therefore, had the men killed him, they would have never left the cave. Eventually, the men escaped the cave by tying themselves to the underside of the Cyclops's sheep. Despite his immense intellect, Ulysses falls short on occasion. After escaping the cave, the men made their way back to the ship. Feeling emboldened by his wonderful scheme, Ulysses began to taunt the giant.
The first way he showed his cleverness when the encountered the Cyclops. Since the Cyclops trapped Odysseus and his men in the grotto with him using a boulder that only he could move, Odysseus had to think of a way for them to sneak out, so he used his cleverness to think up a brilliant plan. They would tied three rams together and each man would hide under the middle so Polyphemus, the cyclops would not see them escaping. First they had to poke Polyphemus is the eye with a wooden spike so he would move the giant boulder blocking the way. Luckily his plan worked perfectly.
Both Odysseus and I have shown cleverness in hard situations that have brought out that cleverness. Homer portrays Odysseus as a man of mind over muscle, although he has enormous strength, he always tries to find a way to get his enemies to make a mistake and exploit it. One such example is when he gets trapped in the cave with Polyphemus and two of his men get eaten. Instead of trying to fight out of anger and his first impulse of “drawing the sharp sword…to stab him,” he thought about the fact that there would be no one to move the boulder for him. As an alternative, Odysseus tricks Polyphemus into letting them free by wounding his only eye with a hot stick and drawing upon all his wits by sneaking out of the cave on the bellies of the sheep.Although,
While they are inside the cave with the Cyclops, Odysseus has evaluated every possible ways to kill the Cyclops. He thinks that only way to kill Cyclops is when he falls asleep. Even when Odysseus has the chance to kill him., but he does not kill him. He realizes that, “If I killed him we perished there as well.” (Homer 9. 207-208) He understands if they kill the Cyclops, the entire crew will die.
If he had not done this, life would be much easier for him, because Poseidon would not have had a reason to go after him. Stabbing someone in the eye sounds bad, but cutting someone’s genitals is even worse Then they brought Melanthius out through the doorway into the yard. With pitiless bronze they sliced away his nose and ears, then ripped off his cock and ball as raw meat for dogs to eat, and in their rage (22.475-479). He ordered the maids to clean out all of the dead bodies from the palace, then proceeded to kill them too. I don’t believe the maids deserved to die even though they slept with Penelope’s suitors.
The Cyclops could have woke up at any time, but still yet Odysseus had put his life in danger. Odysseus and his men had became trapped in Polyphemus cave. Odysseus had told the giant that his name is “nobody”. Though Polyphemus tried to eat his men, Odysseus still found a way to get out of their safely. Secondly, Odysseus was a hero because he was a clever man, who had brilliant ideas.
Because of his extraordinary traits, the great King Henry V successfully led his small army of men to such victory from the great French in the Battle of Agincourt. King Henry’s self-discipline, reflective to his commitment to kingship, had continuously led him to great virtues that ultimately influenced his knights to become true men of chivalry. Aristotle from Book II Moral Virtue “We describe as opposed to the mean those things in which we are more prone to over-indulgence; thus profligacy, which is excess, is more opposite to the mean than its corresponding deficiency is.” It is in fact natural for humans to be obsessed with ideas or things but in the end it will only weigh a person down. Luckily, people can be trained to end bad habits.
After his success in killing off the Trojans by hiding inside an immense wooden horse and attacking when the Trojans least expected it. After that event, Odysseus started to lose his substantial leader skills. Overall, Odysseus demonstrates characteristics of an inadequate leader in the duration of his journey. First, the sequence of inauspicious incidents happened all because of Odysseus’s poor judgement. Upon arriving at the island of the Cyclopians, Odysseus decides to enter the cave where Polyphemus resides.
An example where he is arrogant is when he goes to the Island of the Cyclops. Odysseus and his shipmates arrive to the homes of the Cyclops, they find a cave with food and decide to enter. When they eventually, get caught by the Cyclop that lived there. The Cyclop ate some of his men and capture the rest for another day's meal. Odysseus comes up with a plan to escape.
The hero shows how he is a true hero through his actions and not his words. He continuously tricks his enemies with desirable traps that are hard to turn down,and he does not loe sites of his goals. Odysseus demonstrates arete through heroism, perseverance and, most of all, his intelligence. Throughout the epic poem Odysseus demonstrates clever intelligence when he encounters the Lotus Eaters and when he outwits the Cyclops. When he and his crew land on the dreaded island he
A giant troll would not let the king get into where he kept his money. Since the king was rich, he was very scared that if Achilles didn’t show up quick enough the troll would steal his money and run away. When Achilles arrived, he took his sword and cut the troll 's head off. The king thanked him and ran off. Many days of theses simple monster attacks occurred.
When Ralph realizes that Jack’s tribe has stolen the boys’ fire and Piggy’s glasses, he wants to go reason with Jack to demand their belongings back. When Piggy falls off of the cliff and Ralph was overpowered by Jack’s group, Ralph runs away in fear. However, Sam and Eric are still there on Castle Rock, where Jack’s tribe is. Jack coerces Sam and Eric to join the tribe and they refused, so Jack gave them a taste of what his torturing was if they refused in the future. “The chief snatched one of the few spears that were left and poked Sam in the ribs.” (Pg.
