Gilgamesh Research Paper

I can say that my opinion of heroism has changed. I used to believe there was only one cut and dry mold of what a hero should be like, but now I see there is room for other point of views. Before reading all of these stories I would have said that a hero must be strong and smart and not afraid to take on any challenge like Gilgamesh from unit one. When I thought of hero I immediately think of superhero like Superman. He is handsome and strong like Gilgamesh, but Superman is also different. He was never oppressive and selfish like Gilgamesh was in the beginning of his epic. Gilgamesh helped me to realize that a hero does not have to be perfect. Heroes can grow and change for the better.
Another hero that I feel I have to mention is Arjuna.
