Although he is being harassed he doesn’t care,and continues to defend Tom Robinson. He does this because he truly believes that Tom is innocent and feels that if he doesn’t fight for Tom he will lose his honor and respect as can be seen from the quote, Atticus to Scout “If I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent his legislature,I couldn't even tell you or Jem not do something again.” (100, Lee) He believes in his heart that it is
Huck finds himself in a number of situations where he needed to lie. Although lying is wrong according to society, Huck knows it is the right choice to make in the moment. One example is when he and Jim are travelling on a raft and run into some men who are looking for runaway slaves. Huck has to quickly fabricate a story about his “sick father” on the raft so they would not approach Jim (Twain 72). Huck knows he must not tell the truth, again to help his friend escape slavery.
Atticus taught me many things about being courageous. For example, he knew he probably wasn’t going to win the Tom Robinson case yet he still gave it his all which showed his loyalty towards Tom. His children learned something from a great man like what color you are doesn’t define who you truly are inside. Lee, Harper. To Kill a Mockingbird.
Also not trying to be someone else because a hero knows they can’t be anybody else they can only be themself. The idea is a hero is not a person who has super power but is a regular person like you and me, and they know who they are and are proud of them
When Bob Ewell spat in his face and Atticus reacted very mature to show Jem how he would not let that get to him. To begin, Atticus was firm and fair. In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus is seen as a powerful father figure in his children's lives. In addition, his steady presence keeps the children grounded. As Atticus was speaking to his kids he says “ You never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 30.)
Admirability is a quality that many strive to acquire, yet, most fail to achieve. Admirability is the ability to be admired or respected by others, even if they don’t necessarily agree with one’s point of view. In the classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, a loving father named Atticus, earns respect from his children, Jem and Scout, and almost his entire community. Wisdom, compassion, and responsibility are just a few things that make Atticus an easily likable character. To begin with, Atticus gives great words of wisdom to Jem and Scout.
This quote shows that Atticus didn’t view courage as marksmanship skills. He viewed courage on a more intellectual level, from a moral perspective. Atticus wanted Jem and Scout to know that real courage is not ‘a man with a gun in his hand’ (Lee, 124), it is when you fight for what is right regardless of whether you win or lose. From Miss Maudie Atkinson’s perspective, Atticus was a hero. She said that his nickname was “Ol’ One Shot” when he was a boy and that “Atticus Finch was the deadest shot in Maycomb
Atticus took upon defending Tom, a black man, knowing he would not win the case, he knew the harsh things people would throw at him. But Atticus brushed them off. The characters Atticus and Scout, in To Kill a Mockingbird showed courage by taking risks, though the outcome may not be in their favor. Atticus had defended Tom Robinson, though he knew he would not win. Scout stood up for herself when Aunt Alexandra was rude to her about her clothing choices.
In Homer’s The Odyssey we are presented with a interesting and quite controversial protagonist, odysseus. There are many different types of heroes which mostly include superheroes and regular heros. Odysseus most certainly does not fall into the category of super hero mostly because of his blatant disregard of his men's lives and his unloyalty to his wife but he does fit into the simple hero category mostly because of his physical and spirituality. He provides everything a hero needs physically looking the part and he also runs into danger instead of away from it which also is a key characteristic of a hero. He also provides the leadership characteristic with making men follow his every move and really questioning him.
Beowulf is confident enough in his abilities that he believes he can fight off Grendel with no weapons or armor. I believe Beowulf, in the time of this writing was truly seen as a hero. But in this day, I do not believe he is seen as a hero. Heroes today are seen as those who do things not for themselves and for the recognition, but to protect others. They do not brag about the abilities they have, they do not boast about their strength.
As Harper Lee states “ Tom’s dead was typical, typical of a nigger to cut and run, typical of a nigger mentality to have no plan, no though for the future, just run blind first chance he saw “(240). This important because even though a colored person is dead they still judge him and there still rude too. As Harper Lee states, “too proud to fight, you nigger loving ‘baster” (217). This is important because there calling names to Atticus for taking the case of Tom Robison and for talking to him. As Harper Lee states, “White man who’ll take advantage of a Negros’s ignorance, don’t be a fool yourselves’’ (221).
In “To Kill a Mockngbird”, Atticus Finch plays Scout Finch’s father, who is an admirable lad. He sees things for the good not the bad. Many reasons tell whyhe is such a good man, but here are a few. He say’s in this book,”You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of veiw...until you climb in his skin and walk around in it.” So here he’s saying that you can’t judge a person by the way they look or act. First learn their trials and what they’ve been through.
A hero is a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities. Unlike a super hero, Beowulf was not granted with special powers to shoot webs or have a fair amount of wealth; however, he does have characteristics that make him fall under the category hero. The character Beowulf is the epitome of the native English hero. Beowulf has the characteristics of bravery, strength, and loyalty. These characteristics make Beowulf a hero.
Marcus Luttrell is more than lucky, he is also highly skilled in the art of combat and is a shining example of human determination. Many people speculate that simply surviving does not make heroes, but surviving against the odds that were against Luttrell is legendary. Luttrell has done much more than just serve his country; he has also started charities for veterans and continues to be an avid member of his community. Marcus hates the liberal media for their ignorance in the matter of veteran welfare. Marcus had a book written about him because of his incredible luck in the worst of odds.
For instance, Mr.Underwood“He despises negroes, won’t have one near him.” ,but is still willing to defend atticus. Mr.Underwood would have made sure nothing happened to bad to Atticus. Mr.cunningham and Atticus were great friends until, Atticus started defending Tom Robinson. Mr.cunningham was in a mob with a group of people who were against Atticus. The mob tried to hurt Atticus to try to get to Tom.
