Hermes was also the god of trade, sports, athletes, thieves, travelers, border crossings, and guide to the Underworld. Zeus had gifted his dear son with lightness and the ability to fly by placing wings on his feet and helmet. With his many duties and abilities, he was placed in quite a few stories. The first was when he was born; he had trailed off and found Apollo’s cattle, and being only an infant he stole all of them. Apollo had found his cattle missing but a little birdy pointed in Hermes way; of course, Apollo was furious but Hermes paid him in return with a beautiful Lyre.
So, he seeks revenge. After Odysseus reveals himself and they start fighting, Telemachus kills a suitor just to save his father. Odysseus loves his family and would fight till the death to save them.

Bonilla 2 Jehovany Bonilla 02/16/17 Cid, English 1 2A Romeo and Juliet: unconventional “love” Love is defined as an intense feeling of deep affection. Love is when you go that extra mile for someone , when you feel silly or butterflies in your stomach when you are around the person you like.

What is love’s definition? Whether love’s description is passionate, serene, or vigilant, love’s outward appearance of how people see it ordinarily tends to be different than its true value of essence. Love is an intense feeling of deep emotions, a divine energy, and an activity that maintains a positive mood throughout someone’s day. Love may be difficult and hard to comprehend during specific times, but it is there to fight against anger and hate when needed. Throughout the beginning of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare, there was more than enough sorrow from Romeo’s feelings for Rosaline that he could not bare.
In Equus we see the divide between rationality and passion, the two ends of the spectrum, and by using Socrates’ views on madness we can analyze and solve the divide. Socrates states in his second speech in Plato’s Phaedrus, that madness can be a gift from the gods, and that some of the greatest blessings in life come from such madness. In Equus, we can see this very idea causing distress in Dr. Dysart. Dysart states “My desire might be to make this boy an ardent husband-a caring citizen-... (it) is more likely to make him a ghost!” (98-99).
Out of a library once I read “ There are people who want a relationship like Romeo and Juliet’s without knowing that lasted three days and caused six deads!” This sarcastic but indeed real sentence has nothing to do with the idea of overwhelming, powerful, idyllic and especially ideal love that we are all used to associate to Romeo and Juliet.

Similar to a pagan or Greek god, the omniscient Equus calls for humankind’s return to nature through the form of any individual horse. Where Frank was an atheist, Dora was a fervent Christian who taught Alan that Jesus was crucified due to the sins of mankind; in this moment, the theme of suffering for meaningful worship manifests in Alan’s obsessive love for Equus. To become a worthy adherent, Alan actively inflicts suffering on himself in the name of Equus. One night, Frank discovers Alan flagellating himself with a coat hanger, yet Frank cannot confront his son and leaves Alan feeling embarrassed (I 13 47). Knowing that Frank and Dora and the greater society would shame his worship of Equus, Alan hides his inner conflict and only freely expresses his religion once every three weeks at the stables—his temple.
