Beowulf faces three different endeavors which means the lyric has three different climaxes. The first peak of the story occurs when Beowulf and his men are sleeping in the Heorot and Grendel comes to attack. After the monster kills one of the men, Beowulf grabs Grendel’s arm and rips it off and hangs it on the rafter. The next climax was when Beowulf goes to fight Grendel’s mother, who came back for revenge, killed King Hrothgar’s best friend, and stole back her son’s arm. The two put up a very good fight against each other until Beowulf finds a sword in Grendel’s mother’s kitchen and stabbed her to death.
Then died. A couple months later Hercules wife thought that Hercules was seeing another woman. So she got one of his tunics and rubbed the blood on the inside of it. Not knowing the centaur lied to her and it was actually blood and the poison that was on the arrow that Hercules shot at it!
In the greek tragedy, Antigone, written by Sophocles and translated by Dudley Fitts and Robert Fitzgerald, Creon and Antigone have shown many similarities. When Antigone and her sister return to Thebes they plan on helping their brothers Eteocles and Polyneices. The two brothers were in battle and when they were fighting they ended up killing each other. Eteocles was buried properly but when it was time to bury Polyneices Creon did not allow it because he believed he was traitor. Antigone broke Creon’s law by burying her brother and in the act of doing so, she was caught.
Later that night, once everyone is asleep, Grendel enters Herot Hall to kill some of the men, but is instead mortally wounded by Beowulf. Because of Beowulf’s success and bravery, King Hrothgar, ruler of the land, gives him gifts and a feast in his honor. The second main point in the story Beowulf is the death of Grendel’s mother. When Grendel’s mother hears about the death of her son, she becomes angry and vows to avenge her son: “His mother’s sad heart, And her greed, drove her from her den on the dangerous Pathway of revenge.” (Raffel 1276 – 1278).
“His mind was in turmoil/unaccustomed anxiety and gloom/confused his brain; the fire-dragon/ had raised the coastal region and reduced/forts and earthworks to dust and ashes/so the war-king planned and plotted his revenge” (Heaney 2331-2336). Beowulf knows he will be able to defeat the dragon, but this fight is different comparing to Grendel and Grendel’s mother. “The glittering sword/infallible before that day/failed when he unsheathed it, as it never should have” (Heaney 2584-2586). All of the swords are breaking and he gets bit by her causing him to have a poison in his neck. Evil is towering over, and no one is able to save Beowulf until Wiglaf his only warrior who stay behind helps him out.
How I wish you’d died there, killed by that strong warrior who was my husband once’” (Homer, Iliad 3. 480-482), this stirred up conflicts on the ground between the mortals and made Helen and other Trojans dislike Paris even more. Goddesses like Athena were out for revenge in the Iliad because Paris did not see her fit for the golden apple that was to be given to the fairest Goddess, in the Judgement of Paris. So Athena and Hera, who mainly used her marriage to Zeus to do her dirty work, plotted against the Trojans.
Lady Macbeth’s lust for power was evident as she pushed Macbeth to kill Duncan because she wanted to be queen, but after the deed is done, it is apparent that it has messed with her mind. If it was a common act to sleepwalk and talk in your sleep the gentlewoman would not assume the doctor could prescribe medicine to help. Lastly, it is apparent that Lady Macbeth’s lust for power drove her to insanity when she committed suicide. Macbeth and Seyton heard a scream and Seyton went to check on the cause. After returning he made the statement, “The queen, my lord, is dead.”

Myths have been around for hundreds of years and will continue to be a big part of the culture in all aspects of the world. The three passages from Native American myths are no exception as they all have a story to tell. Back then Native American culture was mostly an oral culture and myths were passed on from generations to generations. This was important to the Native Americans because this was their tradition and was sacred to them.

Myths have existed throughout all of human history, explaining how we came to be, why we exist, and how our actions exist to teach lessons. Both myths, “The Story of Corn and Medicine” and “The World on the Turtle’s Back”, explain that humans will make good and bad choices, but these experiences will teach lessons about evil and the choices we must make to change our ways, and to expand our knowledge and advance the world. The first lesson taught but the myths is evil and greed have inherited the earth, and will continue to if humans do not change their actions. The World on the Turtle’s Back uses the wife to explain the root of greed in the world.
