Title The painting “Hercules and Deianira” by Antonio del Pollaiuolo depicts a myth from classical antiquity, of the centaur Nessus abducting the maiden Deianira from her lover, Hercules, who pursues and kills the man-beast. According to legend, the centaur would pull one more trick before his death, convincing Deianira that his blood could be used as a love tonic; when she gives Hercules a robe soaked in the blood potion, he dies in a fit of agony, revealing the centaur’s wicked hoax. The artist chooses for the moment of depiction an instant of pursuit, as Hercules realizes his folly and gives chase to the abductor, bow in hand. “Hercules and Deianira” is massively successful at translating the emotional character of the scene, a moment wrought with anger and anguish, into a visual

But as Perseus was passing by on his journey home from slaying Medusa, he saw the young maiden crying for help and instantly fell for her. Perseus bravely went towards the creature and using Medusa's head as a weapon, turned the creature into stone. He then saved Andromeda from her confinement and took her to his home to become his wife.(Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature) Perseus' action represents an act of heroism. Saving Princess Andromeda from a deadly sea creature took a huge amount of courage and was a danger to his own life.

Grendel's mother went to Hrothgar and began antagonizing the people that lived there because they killed her son and she was very angry. Beowulf went after her to the lake and killed her, even with the disadvantage of being underwater. After Beowulf kills Grendel's mother, he says "if God had not helped me" (Seamus Heaney, Line 1657), which means that he could have possibly not been successful if God had not been there to support him during the battle."

The Seafarer reaches success by completing his voyages across the ocean and getting a better life.
