Everything in life has a cause, a reason behind its existence. Some instances are more complicated than others. Gatsby’s death was the result of a domino effect, each event leading up to the other. In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway is the most accountable for Gatsby’s death because he is the one who knows the most, but says the least. Tom Buchanan’s character is the most parasitical one in the book.
Today Attila the Hun is categorised as a great leader by modern historians due to his loyalty, his courage and his ability to take charge. In contrast to these views, the classical writers feared him, naming him the “Scourge of God” and calling him savage, as he conducted many massacres and killed many men. Most modern historians have an opinion of Attila the Hun, such as Wills Durant and Peter Heathers. Additionally the book “Leadership secrets of Attila the Hun” by Wess Roberts states we have a lot to learn from Attila’s reign. Although there are many modern sources dedicated to Attila, there are very few ancient sources written about him.
Gilgamesh is going to kill Humbaba with Enkidu, and Beowulf is out to kill anyone that get’s in his way. The idea of sin is also incorporated in both, as by trying to achieve these strenuous tasks, they end up sinning against whoever they worship in their religious times.

In all history textbooks, you can always find a leader that has accomplished many feats, but how have they done that? Do you really think the way they accomplished their goals were “good”, or civil and just? In reality, the answer is most likely, “No”. Although their accomplishments have changed the world in many different ways, they almost always implicate the evils in men. Unfortunately, all humans have that aspect in them; a primal, savage instinct that drives them to complete their desires, often with the use of violence.
In these two novels, ignorance truly is bliss. Both Fahrenheit 451 and 1984 convey some significant, albeit exaggerated truths, concerning human behavior. Originality and individuality are characteristics that are revered today, but feared by the fierce tyrants in Orwell and Bradbury’s novels. These governments strive to suppress the population into conformity, to keep them in an almost sedated state so that the citizens do not interrupt the reign of oppression. The human mind is the greatest and most difficult obstacle to conquer; and perhaps the most deadly weapon one can wield.

In total,, his strive for success got him very far, but it also revealed something in him that is universally human which is the desire for more power. Like Macbeth, not all of humanity is fit to serve since with great power comes incredible amounts of responsibility.
Sometimes, the hero is the underdog, but in other cases the hero is someone who's already known by all for being incredibly strong or brave. Not to mention, most people root for the good guy, but every great story has an even greater villain. In reality, a lot of times in these types of stories, the hero's endeavors are hardly ever impetuous. Stories including superheroes and villains, excite people because they leave sitting at the edge of our seats, dying to know how it ends. In the poem, Beowulf, a hero not only goes up to battle once, but three times; which leads the question: why does he do what he does?
