Hydra is even one the longest known constellation at 100 degrees. Even though Hydra is so big it only contains one really bright star.
Ayla changes the clan, her new family, around her in her first years, and they change her too. Normally, Clan people would never interact with the “others”(believed to be Cro Magnons).

Creb is a crippled shamanistic figure in the clan, and because of his disabilities, he has never had experience dealing with children. He called his sister Iza over to look at Ayla’s eyes, because Ayla is crying.
No. With endless questions being answered in the same manner I was at a loss to why he could suddenly, after nineteen years of seemingly happy marriage, call it quits without a word. As if that wasn’t enough, five days after my dad excommunicated his family I watched my one year old puppy get hit by a car, dragged across train tracks and around the block for a little less than a kilometer until he was finally dislodged and dragged from under said car by yours truly. As I ran screaming after the driver I will never forget the thought that kept playing on a loop: “I can’t do this. Not my dog.

The water snake is a representative of a dream because of its periscope head preparing for an opportunity to achieve its goal. The heron portrays fate because it takes the water snake by its head to kill it instantly and unexpectedly, like fate crushes dreams.

Curley’s wife is like the periscope head, preparing for an opportunity to become an actress, until Lennie started petting her hair and killed her.

Comparison of Gilgamesh and Achilles In The Epic of Gilgamesh and The Iliad, Gilgamesh and Achilles carry the burden of being powerful heroes and assume the leadership roles that follow. We see both characters make selfish decisions, experience the effects of companionship, and undergo moral change throughout their journeys. Tracing their decisions shows how they change, and more importantly exhibits what drives their change. Gilgamesh’s main internal struggle is rooted in the well being of the people of Uruk versus the well being of himself. Gilgamesh’s practice of prima nocte and lack of compassion for his people inspires resentment from the public of Uruk.
In this essay I will discuss about the main changes of Gilgamesh throughout the epic, especially after the death of his closest friend Enkidu. Does Gilgamesh change after Enkidu's death? My answer is yes because in the beginning of the epic the main hero Gilgamesh was very confident and superior among citizens of Uruk but after Enkidu’s death he started to fear. He understood that death can reach him. Moreover, he decided to go on a far journey to find immortality.
I will argue that this passage seeks to reflect Gilgamesh’s change, especially in terms of his relationships. Initially, the passage reveals Gilgamesh’s sense of superiority when compared to Enkidu. However, as the passage continues, readers begin to sense Gilgamesh’s support and encouragement of his new friend. This shift in his relationship is an example of a broader theme in this narrative: interaction between characters are the driving force of the plot.
