For instance; when he loses his companion, Enkidu, Gilgamesh recalls the mortality in this citation and afterward he chooses to look for immortality. “Give me your armor to put on your shoulders; The Trojans might suppose I was you, Hold back, and give the Acheans' sons a breather, For breathing spells in war are very few. Then, with a shout, fresh men might easily turn tired men from the ships toward the city." So, like a fool he begged; for it would be an evil death and doom for himself he asked” (Lines 40-47 Book
Cortney Reid- Slocum Dr. BARGERON History 1121 7 March 2016 The Epic of Gilgamesh Tablets: IX, X, XI Here Gilgamesh is wandering the wild, completing his death after Enkidu dies. Then he visits an old tavern keeper who tells him death is inevitable for all men.

Despite Humbaba 's efforts both of the warriors made it to his layer and inflicted a fatal wound onto him. After this the demigod** begged for them to spare his life. After Enkidu told Gilgamesh to not let Humbaba live, they both did the last blows to Humbaba and killed him. In result to the guardian of the forest being killed the hills and forest felt the lack of his presence. Gilgamesh and Enkidu then felled the trees of the forest and explored sacred places within the
This meant that while he was mortal, he was still of a higher status than any other man, even before being declared a king. Because Gilgamesh has never had an equal, his power has been left unchecked, and this angers the people of Uruk. The goddess Aruru then created Enkidu, an equal to Gilgamesh. The two become close friends and go on adventures together, but eventually, Enkidu dies. This leaves Gilgamesh extremely grief stricken and fearful of his own mortality.
Within line 53to line 64 in Gilgamesh explains he is ideal throughout the culture in height and appearance along with the power of inhuman strength based on the recklessness. After the death of Enkidu, Gilgamesh wishes to possess is immortality from a plant, unfortunately he wasn’t able to obtain it because a snake ate it. The muses in Achilles foreshadowed his death, yet states his immortal in every aspect of his body except the hell which how he met his fate. Achilles also had the ability persuaded the gods to defeat of the Trojans by sending down natural disasters and diseases (INSERT EXAMPLE). In the story, the power of immortality was given to him when his mother dipped Achilles into a river as a child from his mother.
On his deathbed Enkidu states, “I do not die like one who falls in the midst of battle” (62). He is still in denial about being a mortal, but still succumbs to death anyway. This hits close to home with Gilgamesh, who still at this point believes he is bulletproof. Gilgamesh grieves the death of Enkidu, not knowing how to continue his life without him. While the death saddened him, it also frightened him.
Most quarterbacks, at any level, would have been nervous, but what Montana did, in the biggest game of the year, really shows how he earned the nickname Joe Cool. Joe Montana had great stats for an NFL quarterback. He may not have the best stats of all time compared to today 's players, but when he was done playing they were some of the best ever. In just 10 seasons of twelve games or more, he threw for over 40,500 passing yards, including passing for 300 yards in a single game thirty nine times, six of those times in the postseason. That was an NFL record when he retired, as was his passing for 300+ yards in five consecutive games.
It then hit him; the water was being drained out of a sinkhole. He told the townspeople as quick as he could and showed their attention to the sinkhole. The people immediately let him go and apologised. They filled the hole and stop the draining; Johnnit was the town hero and got to stay on the long side of Mt. Potenuse near the town Wrightriangle.
Because he is of the gods and valiant, Gilgamesh is greatly glorified as a true hero. In the beginning of The Epic of Gilgamesh, the narrator states, “ Gilgamesh, who is two-thirds god, and one-thirds man, is handsome, courageous and powerful (Sandars 139). Gilgamesh is immediately characterized as a great and powerful figure. He was known in Uruk for his heroism and pride, and had abilities and powers beyond imaginable. When the people became tired of Gilgamesh, the gods sent him a match.
Introduction In this paper, I will involve in exploring one trait of a hero in a nuanced and complex way. I will build this complexity by discussing two heroes who posses this trait, and one who does not. To illustrate, an epic hero is a character in the epic story or poem who is brave and noble. I will involve in exploring three heroes (Beowulf, Odysseus and Merry).
