Lastly, he and all of his men escape the cave by strapping themselves to the bottom of sheep, so Polyphemus cannot find them (The Cyclops). All of these things that he did to make sure his crew had a safe escape shows his cleverness. He used his head and the limited resources he had, which makes him a hero. Another time he shows cleverness is when he creates a plan to get rid of the suitors, instead of just barging in to see his wife and family (“Twenty years gone, and I am back again…”). Odysseus knew that if he went back without a plan, the suitors would just kill him.
Later when Victor is told by his monster that he would leave to South America if Victor makes a second creation, he agrees until he selfishly destroys the second creation. “You have destroyed the work which you began... Do you dare to break your promise?” (181). Victor knew the consequences.
Their jealousy got in the way of what was truly right. When finally landing in Ithaca, he learns that loyalty is something that shouldn't be broken, especially when some of the suitors are from Ithaca, Odysseus' own homeland. This means that the suitors are disloyal to their King because they are courting his wife, stealing all his food, and slaughtering his animals for their feasts. Most importantly, they are plotting to kill Telemachus and Odysseus if he is ever to return to the island. He learns that the only way he can show that he is a firm leader is to reveal to all of Ithaca who he truly is.
“The Odyssey” is an Epic Poem which discusses the life story of Odysseus. The main focus of the poem is the journey of Odysseus and his way back home. Certain events distract him, most importantly; his encounter with the Gods, Goddesses. It takes Odysseus all of what it takes to head back home, including his bravery and intelligence. These qualities in Odysseus not only help himself but his men survive through the chaos of the journey called “The Odyssey”.
When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships. I realize also the significance of the duty for a soldier because if Druse didn’t kill his father, he can be considered as a criminal. 9. What do you think the author’s messages are concerning “duty”, “family” and “war”?
When Odysseus yells out his real name to the Cyclops, as Odysseus and his crew of men were trying to escape the cave of the Cyclops “Cyclops-if any man on the face of the earth should ask you who blinded you, shamed you so,-say Odysseus raider of cities” (Homer, 21) Odysseus can be rather arrogant at times. Odysseus did not want the credit of stabbing a Cyclops in the eye go to “Nobody”. So, he told Polyphemus his real name. Odysseus wanted everyone to that it was he who took down the mighty Cyclops. However, like many other heroes, they are not perfect all the time.
I believe Odysseus is a hero because of what he did during his 20-year journey from home to Troy, then to home again. I say this because, during The Odyssey, Odysseus saves his men on several occasions and eventually saves his family from the suitors. As well his actions during the Trojan War turned the war in Greece’s favor. Moreover, he thinks of his men and getting them home.
However, in the end, they were always more similar than he ever thought. Amir’s dream of fighting the same bear as his father demonstrates that he has become like his father, who he previously thought that he was nothing like. When he has the dream, it shows that he is strong enough to seek redemption. In Rahim Khan’s final note, he notes that Baba was a tortured soul, just like Amir himself, and that the two were more alike than they
Gilgamesh was filled with sorrow because of the death of Enkidu, but he left his own people just for their own progress. Its mission is based on selfishness and greed. Conversely, Hector left his family to fight Achilles. Andromache told Hector that Achilles had killed his father, his brother and took his mother as a slave. Hector was selfish and filled with too much pride to stay at home and not fight.
Do you think Odysseus is a hero? If yes why do you think so? I think he was an epic hero because he did many things to help his people. He, would do a lot of things he would do to defend his people and he would of died trying to die for them to. He sometimes almost gave up but he kept on trying until he went back home.
Some say Zeus saw threw the trick but decided to use it as an excuse to vent his anger on mankind and hide fire from man.

As eager as Odysseus is to get back home to his wife and son in Ithaca, the shipmates on board with him are struggling with hunger and the loss of energy. Looking at Odysseus’ intense determination to return to his town, it seems as if the only idea that is filled in his mind is to go back to Ithaca without looking at the tired condition of his shipmates. Odysseus’ yelled difficult orders and tasks that were expected to be fulfilled by his sailors, and for the most part they were able to complete it. Looking at the poor men rowing day and night over the monstrous waves, Odysseus never gave them a chance to take a break and enjoy a single meal, until one shipmate decided to speak up. Even so, Odysseus was narrow-minded and thought only about
