Herot was unsafe and nobody was capable of slaying the monster Grendel. There is a difference between fear and outright cowardice. When Beowulf, the cousin of Higlac, arrives to speak with Hrothgar, King of the Danes, he shows nothing but bravery; it takes bravery to march straight to the king with a request, and it takes even more bravery to have that request be a permit to slaughter the monster terrorizing the land. Beowulf is presented again as the best man on Earth and the bravest one of all. He is so unafraid that he does not even fight with weapons of any kind.
However, she still preforms bad wolf habits showing that she has not successfully adapted to the human culture. Little things such as translating wolf into English in her head before saying them is one example of the little things that go unnoticed. Still at stage three, Claudette wags her invisible tail, repeats the steps of being a well-mannored student, and licks her packs cheeks to comfort them. Claudette tries extremely hard to welcome her new culture but some things happen instinctively exhbiting that she is not ready to leave. For example, Claudette was at the dance and got mad at a boy so she instinctively displays her wolf personality.
The girls at St. Lucy’s are very uncivilized and “tear through austere rooms, overturn dresser drawers, and spray yellow streams all over the place” (pg 225) The nuns there do not approve of this, there faces during this time are “pinched with displeasure” (pg 225) As said in the epigraph, the girls are having fun and acting excited about their new, foreign place to stay. They are very wild of course, but are also interested in what comes before them. As they develop they see the different sides of St. Lucy’s. The 1st epigraph is a major key to the development of the pack. According to the text, “At first our pack was all hair and snarl.”(pg 225) This example indicates how the pack was, at first, quite messy.
His sword is useless against Grendel’s mother, and there is no way for him to defeat her. Beowulf’ thanes believes he died during the battle because they could not see him as he is fighting beneath the water. Roads of trials is the sixth stage of the hero’s journey. It is a stage when multiple challenges wait for the hero after he enters the world (Campbell 81). The stage is crucial for heroes because they have to prove their possibility as heroes.

This is where Scout asks “Atticus, are we going to win it?” Which then Atticus responds “No, Honey”(pg.101) Here Atticus showed courage because he was “licked” before he started. He even knew he wasn’t going to win but he wouldn’t be able to look at his kids if he did not do this. This shows even more courage by Atticus admitting he was going to lose . Harper Lee said “It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.”(pg.134) Here is when Atticus and the kids go to Mrs. Dubose’s house and talked to her about things. This is courage because Atticus was not holding a gun or being mean to Mrs. Dubose.

As seen many time in Macbeth’s fall he becomes meticulous in his actions, going overbroad to change or follow his fate except this one instance. Early in the story he was willing to kill a longtime friend Banquo his son, and his willingness to murder an entire man’s family. Yet, he does not think to take the few steps to cut down a few trees instead finding it pointless to take action. With every prophecy, there has always been a reaction by Macbeth except this one, where he takes no steps to prevent his predetermined fate. This inaction goes against everything thing Macbeth has “chosen” to do just to simply go along with a predestined plan of the
At one point in everyone’s life, someone has to step up and lead a group to victory. In Orson Scott Card 's book, Ender’s Game, people depended on Ender to be the best leader the Fleet ever had in order to defeat the enemy, the Buggers. Ender was a good leader because he knows who he was fighting with and against, he trained and pushed his army to the limit, and he was smart and caring but also hostile at times. One way Ender was a good leader is by knowing who he was working with and against. When Ender first got his army after he became a commander, he trained with them and later he “wrote down his impression of each of the boys in the army, the things he notice right about them, the things that needed more work,” (Card 168).

Plus, Proctor’s third son is not baptized because Proctor will not “let Mr. Parris lay a hand upon my (Proctor’s) baby.” Proctor doesn’t see Parris as an honorable leader of the church, but that is clouding his participation in a religious practice, baptism. The final reason why Proctor’s religious knowledge and participation are clouded is because he believes Reverend Parris is greed because Parris was “the first minister ever did demand the deed to his house,” and he “preached nothing but golden candlesticks until he had them.” Once again, one who is Puritan needs to have faith in their religious leader, but Proctor can’t. As a result, he isn’t a devout
She also gets super paranoid by Noise and would have a hard time sleeping peacefully; she would be afraid of getting eaten by an animal at night. Mary made a thoughtful suggestion stating “ I would avoid drinking water so I won’t have to use the bathroom”. Mary would probably have a hard time in the stocks because she Is very ticklish and tends to kick and fight back while being tickled. Mary will become more isolated after her sentencing and would avoid going back to the stocks. As the more emotional person in the group; Britney stated “I would start crying and become emotionally stressed”.
