For years, people have viewed Odysseus as a lousy hero with many faults and mistakes. His flaws include his arrogance, his treatment to his crew, and his lack of faith to the gods and his family. While initially reading the Odyssey, these reasons are obvious, but once reading the whole epic I was able to see through his flaws which actually led him home. Although Odysseus tripped on many occasions, he stood up and protected his men, escaped many monsters and immortals, and made wise and clever decisions. Odysseus went through a long, rough adventure and survived the entire voyage while managing to keep his family intact.
When his coach screamed at him, he never quit. When his dad verbally abused him, he never showed weakness. " Finds, and shall find me unafraid" (Henley 12). He has no fear now, and will never show fear. That is exactly what Conroy did.
These traits help understand Louie because if you have read or seen the movie then you would know that Louie was always rebellious like when he went outside naked when sick,he was only two years old.

A hero does not fight for himself, this is a story about a man who stopped at nothing to save people. Louie Zamperini is a hero because of all the people he saved in the Labor Camp Rebellion in Tokyo, Japan. Louise also was an Olympian that set a standard for track and field. Louie accomplished these outstanding things, but he also endured many hardships. Louie struggled through four Prisoner of War camps, just barely surviving.
I admire his courage and bravery from the start of his journey till the end, which was his death at the age of 24. He was always moving ahead and never turning back or regretting any moment of his life. He survived so long for not having the material stuff such as money. I don’t think any man is brave enough to do what McCandless did, especially the age he had. He had traveled from one side of the United States to the other in four months by himself using resources around and meeting new people.
Louie Zamperini’s two characteristics that he shows throughout the book, Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken, are courageous and rebellious. How these two traits help you has the reader understand louie has a person is... that he did not so good thing in his life and he will be beaten but will not say anything. And that is all the information that there is on Louie
Many people have a definition of the word hero. Some people’s definition of the word might be someone who stands up for what’s right and what is wrong. But this is my definition of the word hero. My definition of hero is someone who puts their life on the line, and doesn’t think of the rewards he will get.
His beatings and lack of food were only part of his miserable daily life. Eventually Douglass was able to successfully escape this life and vowed to forever actively support the equality of all

He made mistakes based on what made him happy. I admire him for his courage in taking action to get away from “plastic people”. Christopher McCandless (Alexander Supertramp) was not crazy, he just had big ideas. Chris McCandless was always being judged by his father. His father was never satisfied with what Chris would accomplish.
Heroes are generally humble. They do not brag about their deeds. When they save others, they show bravery and courage. Some heroes have their flaws which are part of their bad qualities. This could be selfishness and bragging.

Ponyboy Ponyboy is the main character in the outsiders telling the book. He is a member of the Greasers and is the youngest of his brothers and the gang. The main setting for Ponyboy was at the park by the fountain. This is where everything turns.
