The first way he showed his cleverness when the encountered the Cyclops. Since the Cyclops trapped Odysseus and his men in the grotto with him using a boulder that only he could move, Odysseus had to think of a way for them to sneak out, so he used his cleverness to think up a brilliant plan. They would tied three rams together and each man would hide under the middle so Polyphemus, the cyclops would not see them escaping. First they had to poke Polyphemus is the eye with a wooden spike so he would move the giant boulder blocking the way. Luckily his plan worked perfectly.
Odysseus created an escape plan when he and his men got trapped inside the cave of a deadly Cyclops who had already eaten two of his men. Odysseus kept his cool and devised a plan to hide under the sheep of the Cyclops who were let out of the cave every morning. These actions had an effect on his men, filling them with respect. These are the kinds of actions that make Odysseus an epic hero.
The boat rocked and bounced against the thick, chunky ice. George Washington and his 2,400 troops were stealthily traveling to Trenton to pull a surprise attack on the Hessian soldiers there. George Washington 's morale-boosting voice rang out against the stillness of the night, “I believe and declare my military strategy will win over the Hessians!” The hundreds of boats all let out cheers and shouts echoing across the frozen river.
Odysseus leaves Aeaea and eventually arrives at the Sirens’ island. He follows Circe’s commands and stuffs his men’s ears with beeswax, and he ties himself to the mast. As Odysseus’ vessel rushes toward them, “the Sirens sensed at once a ship / was racing past and burst into their high, thrilling song: / ‘Come closer, famous Odysseus—Achaea’s pride and glory— moor your ship on our coast so you can hear our song! [’]” (277). The Sirens can tell that a ship is arriving “at once;” they quickly organize and begin to sing.
She is being stabbed by one of Gods arrows, putting her into rapture. This form of dramatization that she *describes, is all consuming. This *describes Baroque life perfectly. The constant up keeping of appearance, and stature, made the living the Baroque period all consuming as Saint Teresa’s experience. She describes it as, “In his hands I saw a great golden spear, and at the iron tip there appeared to be a point of fire.
When he threw the hatchet at the porcupine in the cave and missed and hit the stone wall it had showered sparks, a golden shower of sparks in the dark, as golden with fire as the sun…” highlights the aha moment. The sparks had given it away, and Brian had a faint idea of how to use his knowledge to his advantage. Fire was critical, and without it Brian would have starved, died. He cooked with it, boiled water. It offered light, warmth during the cold, wet nights.
When stuck with Polyphemus, Odysseus went to work promptly, crafting an escape from the Cyclops. “...and he quickly drove the sleek flock into the vaulted cavern, rams and all -none left outside in the walled yard- his own idea” He thought of a bona fide plan to help him and his crew. Everett’s reaction was not the same, as far as we are aware. They cut the fiery cross down, and it happened to fall on Big Dan.
Last but not least, Odysseus and I show confidence in lots of different ways. During the Odyssey, Odysseus is put into many situations where most people would just hang their head and give up. However, he stayed pretty positive. First, after Odysseus and his men escaped from the cyclopes by making a huge wooden spear then they “rammed it straight in his crater eye” (906) Once Odysseus was safe on his ship, he started yelling back to the Cyclops, “tell [them] Odysseus, raider of the cites, took you eye”. He had no problem with owning up to what he did.
Cerberus was very kind to the souls who inhabited the underworld and enjoyed greeting the new arrivals who had just died. But if you weren't dead, Hades, Persephone or Charon, Cerberus was fearsome and stern, he could even get deadly towards others. The only ways to mollify Cerberus was to feed him a cake or play the harp for him. It's said when Cerberus was angered he looked so terrifying "any living person who saw him turn to stone"(Cerberus). If Cerberus wished, the saliva in his mouth could produce a deadly poison.
“Blazes, they’re here!” exclaimed Natro, “We must stop them.” They were creatures that controlled fire, and created the Sun, or so they 're believed. Without a shadow of doubt, the 2 kung-Fu masters relentlessly fought the sons of fire, and one by one they fell. Just as they thought 'finished ', a portal appeared behind the priest, and out came a mother blaze, size of a 10 – storey building. The priest was unaware of her, and was,by her powerful fireball, knocked out .
