Odyssey displays many traits of leadership. First,his leadership is demonstrated when his crew obeys his commands.Homer’s text states that his crew “delivers me from my restraint.” Because his crew respects him, they obey him. As well as demonstrating strengths, he also portrays character weaknesses. Good leaders should not put their followers at risk; risking lives instead of saving them demonstrates weakness. A weakness that Odyssey has is selfishness.Odyssey puts his own crew in jeopardy for him to hear the sirens.Homer’s text states ”Me only she permits those strains to hear.” Another weakness odyssey portrays is behavior.
It's comparing the fishes swimming to flying and the ocean they live in as a sky. Her use of metaphor help describe more of her underwater world. I think Barbra Cadogan's A Diver's Paradise was a interesting read compared to lot of the other poem on the site. I personally enjoyed reading it. I think the poem good due to the fact that the purpose of the poem was to describe the ocean and the beauty inside of it Which think the author did a re great job doing.
One infamous couple that is an evident theme throughout Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird is love and sacrifice. The father-child bond between Atticus, Scout, and Jem is undoubtedly a symbol of love and sacrifice. “But do you think I could face my children otherwise? You know what’s going to happen as well as I do, Jack, and I hope and pray I can get Jem and Scout through it without bitterness… I just hope that Jem and Scout come to me for their answers instead of listening to the town” (Lee 117). Atticus clearly knew what he was getting into when he took the case, he knew how it would affect him and his children.
The Odyssey greatly depicted how the gods and higher beings can greatly impact our lives, for better or for worse. Despite this, we can overcome these obstacles and achieve our goals. In book 11, of the Odyssey, “Now came the soul of Anticlea, dead, my mother, daughter of Autolycus, dead now, though living still when I took ship for holy Troy,” This shows that even after learning about about his mother’s death, Odysseus did not give up but continued on his journey. Furthermore, we also learned that loyalty is very important in life. According to book 17, the text states, “But when he knew he heard Odysseus’ voice nearby, he did his best to wag his tail, nose down, with flattened ears, having no strength to move nearer his master.” This helps the reader understand how much the Greeks valued loyalty.
This shows that John is a merciful being and desires forgiveness from his wife and God, therefore demonstrating traits of a good man. Furthermore, John has a heated argument with his wife, due to his encounter with Abigail, alone. Although, he thinks his wife will doubt him, she states on the contrary, “I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you. I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55).
He took this major responsibility in stride and escaped with many lives. In addition, when exploring Scylla and Charybdis, he encouraged his men to persevere and to endure. Odysseus enlivened his men in these words, “‘friends, / have we never been in danger before this? / More fearsome, is it now… Do I not keep my nerve, and use my wits / to find a way out for us?” (Homer 885). He took his responsibility of his crew to new lengths and empowered them to stay strong.
For as long as Odysseus and his men could see in the distance, was miles upon miles of the vast ocean. The ocean was exceedingly immense and at the moment, at peace and mysterious. The waves were docile and relieving , and as the sun set the men were starting to be positive they would arrive to Ithaca in the near future considering the pace they were keeping now. Although the darkness of dusk was approaching at a rapid speed, and Odysseus kept silent as usual, but had a awful feeling something abominable was about to occur. When out of nowhere the sky opened up sending an terrifying bolt of lightning right through their ship.
By eliminating waiting and having everyone else stand by as an option, she offers the quality of urgence; essential in leaders that would like to get anything done. Liu also shows skillful work at being their leader when she says “Complacency is a worse enemy than the virus” because of its wittiness in purpose. She is picking at the groups who could be building hospitals—rather than standing around—but also rallying her group and encouraging them that the virus is containable, no matter how stark the situation may
Viewers observe integrity between the allies Katniss, Peeta, Meg, and Finnick in the arena who work together to survive, friendship between Peeta and Katniss in and out of the games, and loyalty between Katniss, her family, Gale, and Peeta. In addition, another noteworthy Biblical character quality is that of self-sacrifice. When Meg realizes that she is slowing everyone down and endangering them, she willingly sacrifices herself in the poisonous fog so that she would not hinder them any longer. Through these and many other actions throughout the story, the producer clearly and exquisitely illustrates a Biblical moral tone of sympathy and honor for the brave and faithful citizens, and hate for the oppressive, wicked, and selfish rulers. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire embodies all the aspects of an invigorating, suspenseful, and morally positive
