Some say he could have lifted over 100 tons on bench in present day. The personality of a person is what makes them who they are today or hundreds of years ago. People said that katniss is made up of a variety of personality traits. For example, she’s compassionate, independent, moral, responsible, unpredictable, and even sometimes she’s angry. Hercules is most known for being very self confident, but is also known for being crazy, and unpredictable because of Hera’s spell she casted on him people came to believe these things.
Debi Mazar is an actress who stated, “A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tried to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really, deeply cares.” Heroes are relevant to everyone, because at some point, everyone has had a hero. Sadly, today’s society degrades the meaning of the word “hero”. Heroes are an important aspect of life, but famous people are not always heroes. Scott LaBarge’s essay “Heroes: Why Heroes are Important” is well written because he effectively uses pathos, logos, and karios when explaining heroes to his audience.
Introduction: The adventure/journey Campbell goes on is going to show him the difference between the real world and the special world. The hero changed during every stage of the journey Campbell explores the theory from around the world. I agree with Campbell argument that there’s changes through set stages to make the adventure better. Campbell makes a good argument that heroes change in set stages because he talks about every stage that happens. Paragraph 1: The hero is faced with something that makes him begins his adventure.
The hero, Katniss, follows the stages of the monomyth almost exactly, showing how Campbell’s concept is so accurate when applied to a real story. Katniss’s adventure follows the monomyth template almost exactly, because The Hunger Games is a story about a hero’s character growing and changing in a powerful way. Clearly, Campbell’s conclusion about a “hero with a thousand faces” makes sense, even in the context of modern day
The Girl on Fire In “Creating the Myth”, Linda Seger states how the lives of regular people, their ups and downs, the struggle of achieving ones dreams or goals, finding ones soul mate etc. are essentially universal stories drawn from the same experiences. She adds that these universal stories are quite comparable to the basic storyline of most successful movies, albeit the twists and turns, climax, cultural based differences and the characteristics of every person may differ. Furthermore, she distinguishes the two major kinds of stories, primarily “search stories” and “hero stories” (Seger 335). As the name suggests, search stories basically address the desire to find some sort of treasure which could be anything ranging from love and respect
Straight from the get-go the movie was able to captivate my attention by submerging me into the life of Jeanette Walls and her unordinary family. The lineup of actors who portrayed these characters did a superb job because of the way they were able to interact with each other and their surroundings, also the background characters were also a reason as to why this film was enjoyable. Even if there are some differences between the movie and the book, the overall messages are not lost through director Destin Cretton’s adaptation of the memoir. In the past, I have been someone who more than likely would always prefer the book over the movie due to the fact that books always gave more detail to character’s motives and descriptions of scenes. Also
Brice remarried and had a family of his own. He still speaks to her and treated her virus. Personally, this story is very real and inspirational in that it focused on a central theme that is happening universally. While some may say it is the typical love story but I disagree as the producer Tyler Perry no matter how funny or dramatic his movies are, he is always sending a message or touching on a central theme that is very applicable to
Anne Frank A Light in the Dark Anne Frank once said, “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Many people know that Anne Frank was an extraordinary diarist, truly an optimist, and a spunky, energetic girl, but did they know that she was wise beyond her years? She changed the world by blessing humanity with her extraordinary literature skills and imagination. She showed that even in horrible times, people could make the most out of it, and not wallow in their misery. She left a legacy as the light in the dark. Earlier times leading up to the arrest of Anne Frank and her Annex family were full of interesting events and emotion.
Fictional Females’ Power over People In this day and age, it is not abnormal to idolize a role model that may have been fabricated from the imaginations of another. Yes, these imaginations of the creators are fictional characters, and it does not matter if these characters live in the pages of a book or frolick across television screens. It is easy to idolize fictional characters. For one, authors and script writers oftentimes do an impeccable job of developing their characters to mold them into someone that many people wish they could be someday. These writers are able to provide a behind-the-scenes look at their characters and show their thoughts and feelings giving their audience a more personal and a possible in depth connection to
Often there is a chasing scene involved at this stage and the dangers and threats are not over yet. If the hero in his triumph wins the blessing of the goddess or the god and is then explicitly commissioned to return to the world with some elixir for the restoration of society, the final stage of his adventure is supported by all the powers of his supernatural patron. On the other hand, if the trophy has been attained against the opposition of its guardian, or if the hero's wish to return to the world has been presented by the gods or demons, then the last stage of the mythological round becomes a lively, often comical, pursuit. This flight may be complicated by marvels of magical obstruction and evasion. (Campbell
McMann made this condition useful in her novel. It’s great knowing that a disorder can be a life saver rather than being looked down upon. I also think the introduction of OCD in Kendall Fletcher showed us that we all have characteristics as human beings. We are all different. Sometimes the things that people perceive as flaws are still beautiful; and that the unique qualities that each of us possess can teach us something that we never knew before.
