Usually, epic heroes share common character traits such as courage, self control, fearless, daring.
In Homer’s Odyssey, it is my belief that Odysseus is heroic mostly because his is courageous and fearless. For example, he wasn’t panicking when he was against the cyclops, he was thinking of what to do so they can escape the cave.Even though some people may argue that he wasn’t a hero, I maintain that he is a hero because even though he took twenty-years to get back home and he lost his men to a six headed monster, and even had to bed with some goddess to save his men, he still thought of his wife and his child and his kingdom.
