She was the granddaughter of sun god, Zeus. She is not accountable for her actions if the Gods or Fates have influenced the course of her life and are acting through her. Medea desired the moderate life commended by the Gods. However, her husband did not have the same desires and chose to unfaithfully enter a relationship with another woman for political advantage. Medea was an instrument for executing a kind of divine or fated justice.
Preventing the death of a son and saving the life of a highly esteemed hero are choices that most would make, except for the King of Gods - Zeus. In the Iliad, Zeus does not wish to make those decisions, but is compelled to do so out of his sense of duty. Before being a father and warrior, Zeus was above all the leader of the gods. This means that as the head of the Olympians, Zeus has to be impartial in order to keep the peace of Olympus, which causes him great misery at times. Zeus’ duty as the greatest and most influential god stops him from taking sides in mortal affairs in the Iliad to maintain peace, which parallels the question of whether America’s status as the most powerful and influential country gives them the duty to interfere in
Men in Sparta were at war with Athens because Athenians started to think they were more powerful than the other city states, but in reality the only thing protecting Athens was a wall the women got more freedoms because of the men going to war with Athens. Women had many different rights they were allowed to do almost anything except they could not vote. The women of Sparta had many problems, though they could not have as many kids because if they did, they would not be able to work because they could lose the prophet and they would not be making an income. In Athens the women did have some rights but not many and the rights they had were controlled by men. This caused the men of Athens, to think that giving women rights was bad that is why they frowned upon Sparta giving women rights, but if they did not give women any rights they would not have been able to sustain a good society.
He was noble and wise. He may not of been born into royalty or nobleness but after being in the war and being loved by the king of Rome, I consider that to be of nobleness. His fatal flaw was loving his family because if he hadn’t talked about wanting to go home to his them or having them as a weakness at all, he never would’ve been so threatened. He makes the mistake of making an enemy of Commodus, the son of the King of Rome. Maximus refused to swear his loyalty to Commodus which put a target on Maximus’ back.
Moui had nobody to love him or talk to. He wanted to do something to amazed man and make them love him and worship him. In the film, “Moana,” the story teller use the archetype Hero to reveal how we as humans take the risk of saving others because we want to be loved and worship by others. In the film “Moana,” The demigod Maui states that no one loved him and once the gods adopted him and abandon him.
Donna Kay March 13th 2015 Gaunce Hour 7 Honors English Traits of Odysseus Most people think of a hero as someone who is a strong, and brave human being. Heroes usually have super-powers that help them to to achieve their mission. Some things that heroes do is get help from other sources, or leave on a journey where they have to prove themselves to be worthy of honor and praise. Odysseus faces many drawbacks and complicating situations but he rises over them all to reach his final goal of returning home to his family and son in Ithaca.
The work changed my view of the world and myself because it is dangerous in the world and I should dream big like Moana. Also the filmmaker was trying to give the idea that a person can conquer anything that society throws at them. In addition, that you should always strive to be different. Some symbols in the movie are Maui’s tattoos, his tattoos represent everything he has did in his life. Another symbol was when Moana’s grandmother died her spirit transformed into a stingray because her grandma always loved stingrays.
His main quest is to become a god again, A seeker searches for a better life like how Hercules searches for a better life rather than being with mortals. Hercules fears that he wouldn't fit in. A seeker is afraid of conformity like Hercules when he didn't fit into the small town he lived in and everyone hated how he was different. His main dragon was Hades. A seeker flees from their dragon like how Hercules did, up until he changed his was because he knew Meg was in trouble.
His role is very crucial to so many scenes within the plays. He has a wife names Eurydice, who he takes pride in, and a sister named Jocsata. Creon also has a son named Haemon who only appears in the Antigone. Creon is very important therefore taking him out of the plays would make the stories unimportant and not exciting. Creon really represents the power of law for the humans.
Made up love stories stay out of it and it actually seems like a real Greek story, not a Hollywood one. Perseus was a hero in both stories but in the written, he was not some guy that ran around and killed monsters. I enjoyed both versions and I love movies but I do not believe this movie did the actual story
There are two things that would make me not want to be an ancient Greek, and that is if I were a woman and if I were not a citizen. Women in ancient Greece were not held as equals to men. In Greece, it was the father’s obligation to make an appropriate marriage for their daughters, so that meant that in most cases women were married very young to people they didn’t really know. There was little concern for the women in these relationships.
Do to the fact that a god called Gaia had a child and it was a threat to Olympus. So in order to keep peace and to make sure the threat was resolved Zeus had to shake the earth and the skies.(1) In other stories Zeus was in love with metis, but the earth warned Zeus that if he had a child with metis, that the child would come to be too powerful for Zeus to handle. So in order to ensure the safety to Olympus he decided to swallow metis. But that are many myths where Zeus seems to appear as cronos but some are not as well formulated as the original stories.
Hercules is the Most Heroic The view was blocked by shrubs and trees alike. The snorts of the great Erymanthian Boar echo through the forests of Mount Erymanthos. Its stomping caused the mountain to tremor from the heavy impacts of its colossal hooves on the cold earth as it searched for sustenance. Hercules roams the mountain, searching for the beast, intending to capture it and return it to his cousin.
Heroism in our culture could be very misinterpreted. People tend to think that hero’s need to be perfect because they are role models, saviors, or peacemakers. An example of a hero for me is Josh Hamilton, an outfielder for the Texas Rangers. Josh Hamilton started out as a power hitting prospect for the Tampa Bay Rays but struggled with addictions to drugs. He spent a short stint for the Reds before the Texas Rangers picked him up.
Mythologies, although depicted in different ways, are a part of every culture. Every mythology has stories of their heroes and how they came to be. Usually heroes come into this world unnaturally and strangely. Heroes have their tales of incredible quests they are sent on, like fighting horrific monsters and solving complex puzzles. Eventually heroes die, whether out of heroism or stupidity.
