In the epic poem The Iliad, armies and individuals on both sides of the Trojan War are compared to animals through a figure of speech called, simile. The similes reveal qualities about the nature of honor and leadership. Through out the epic, both Gods and mortals have made decisions in battle that are considered honorable or dishonorable. While the narrator does not directly say an action is honorable or dishonorable, it is implied through simile that an action is to be viewed a certain way. For example, when Agamemnon attacks a group of Trojan soldiers he is compared to a lion and, the Trojans are compared to cattle stampeding in fear of the lion.
The poem suggests that this is a result of the hatred of humans and the easiest way to “feed they lion” and make “they lion grow”(Levine 5). It gives off the a tone to the reader that there is war or that there once was war. Levine’s word usage is what gives the poem its unfortunate tone right from the start. Rather than choosing softer language, he starts his poem with words a phrases like “acids of rage” (Levine 3) and
Let me use the story of the famous Disney movie, The Lion King to explain this point. The movie begins with a dedication ceremony for Simba, the baby lion born to the current king, Mufasa and his wife Sarabi. When his father dies, Simba would be heir to the throne. But Mufasa’s brother, Scar, wants to be king too. So he looked for an opportunity to eliminate his nephew Simba, from the scene.
Robert W. Krepps’s short story, “Pride of Seven” illuminates the theme,with fear comes courage. The story begins by introducing the Masai tribe of Kenya, and the dutchman that has been living with the tribe for quite sometime. The dutchman has become friends with one of the natives whom goes by the name En-gerr, who has not yet sought after his lion. In the Masai tribe in order for a boy to become a man he must kill a lion, with no gun only a spear. The dutchman happens to have found a pride of seven lions in which he has come to enjoy watching.
Dynamic characters add mystery to a story. Since they are always changing, people never know what is going to happen. In “The Monkey’s Paw”, Mr. White could have made many different decisions about what to do with the paw. The fact that he chose to make wishes was only one of the few things he could have done with it. Dynamic characters also help there to be more details in a story.
“The Young Man who was carried off by a Lion” is narrated by an omniscient narrator, the reason for saying this is that it could come across as being written in the third person but it has that extra information. That being, it is not just someone looking at what is happening but the narrator is this story knows the thoughts and emotions of both the man and the lion. For example, the feeling of the man, “He felt the need to lie down” (Bleek & Lloyd, 2016:8) and where the lion caught movement from the young man, “Why had the man’s head moved?” The imagery of the story is quite explicit and vivid, for example, “You must give the lion a child, so that it will go away from us.” (Bleek & Lloyd, 2016:10) This is due to the discourse with storytelling and due to their beliefs, that indigenous people were more barbaric.

Lion, directed by Garth Davis, is a compelling interpretation of a remarkable true story of Saroo Brierley, lost as a child and reunited with his family 25 years later. Throughout Davis explores the unique circumstances under which Saroo is separated and reconnected with his family and his journey along the way. At some points of the film, I was confronted by how Saroo, a five-year-old boy, expertely navigates, with great instinct and genuine innocence, through an extended, yet life threatening ride. To put it in other words, Lion is a journey that grabs you entirely; whether you want it or not, and you are involved in each and every scene. I instantly fell in love with the connection and relationship between Saroo and his older brother
Another resemblance between 'The Lion King ' and 'Macbeth ' is the characters of the story. It 's well-known that the first character which has a great role of the story in 'Macbeth ' is King Duncan, while King Mufasa also represents this role in 'The Lion King '. Obviously, we can see the similarity between both of them through their position in the society. King Duncan is the king of Scotland, while the Pride Lands is ruled by King Mufasa; likewise, they both rule the land rightfully. Certainly, they long to hand on the crown to the son, but both of them are murdered by their kinsman who wants to take this crown.
The Lion King is a film based on a young lion cub, Simba, and the events he must overcome in learning to become a successful leader. The film begins with the birth of Simba, the heir to the throne. The birth of Simba forces Simba’s Uncle Scar out of the line up to one day become king. Thus Simba’s birth angers Scar enough to plot the death of the Simba’s father, King Mufasa. Scar creates a stampede where Simba and Mufasa are walking; ensuring Simba is present for his father’s death, allowing Scar to be able to convince Simba that his father’s death was his fault.
