Why’n’t you shoot him, Candy?” (Steinbeck 44) In reality, Carlson didn’t really care about the dog or Candy, he just wanted to kill it for fun or because it stinks up the whole bunkhouse. This also proves the idea that nothing part of nature that is a living thing survives in the bunkhouse. At first, no one complained about the dog except for Carlson. Candy refused but then considered what Carlson said because Slim agreed with Carlson. Everyone thinks that Slim is the judge and whatever he says is the right thing to do.
207-208) He understands if they kill the Cyclops, the entire crew will die. The Cyclops is the only one who is strong enough to carry the rock and lead them to escape from his cave. By not killing the Cyclops, Odysseus saves his whole group of men from death and simply practicing habits of
During the escape from the cyclops’ cave, Odysseus made all his men go first before he escaped. Odysseus sacrificed his safety for his men, which shows that heroes make sacrifices. Also, Odysseus sacrificed his way home. Odysseus teased the cyclops about how he was able to to defeat him. That angered the cyclops, so he cursed Odysseus and his men so that they wouldn’t be able to go home.
Again, on the island of the Sungod Helios, Ulysses' men disobey strict orders and feast on the sacred cattle when he goes inland to pray and falls asleep. The woes that Ulysses faced made his growth as a character more realistic and more credible because it was not simple or absolute.

Atticus Finch is portrayed as great parent in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The way Atticus Finch acts at home and on the streets provide a good role model for Jem and Scout. He is a parent who always does the right thing and stays true to himself and to his children at all times. Atticus is a positive role model for his children because he is the same character wherever he goes and whoever he talks to. When Scout misinterprets Miss Maudie’s words she attempts to defend his father about how he does not do anything at home different than what he would do at work.
This shows courage because if people were to learn where Merlin would really go, then he would have most likely been executed or jailed. Another example of courage in the book is when Uther falls in love with Ygraine the wife of the Duke of Cornwall. Merlin decides to help him because he know the child will become the greatest king ever, Arthur. Merlin has to kill a man so the truth about the child isn’t found it. These actions show immense courage because: Merlin is risking his life to help Uther, has to kill a man so the truth isn’t discovered, and he is only helping Uther because of a vision Merlin had.
The Cyclops could have woke up at any time, but still yet Odysseus had put his life in danger. Odysseus and his men had became trapped in Polyphemus cave. Odysseus had told the giant that his name is “nobody”. Though Polyphemus tried to eat his men, Odysseus still found a way to get out of their safely. Secondly, Odysseus was a hero because he was a clever man, who had brilliant ideas.
Odysseus in The Odyssey by Homer is a hero because he saved many of his men from the cyclops, Polyphemus. Odysseus comes up with a brilliant plan to escape Polyphemus’ cave by hiding under the rams when the cyclops releases the rams to the fields. He says “First I loosened myself from the ram, then loosened
This took so long dude, and i got rolled by my mom last night haha. As much as he was devastated by decision the clan elders made with Ikemefuna, he didn’t want to show anyone that he was weakened by this choice of Ikemefuna to die. The elders to him that he didn’t have to be apart of killing Ikemefuna, but he declined and went with the others to kill him. He did this because he wanted to show everyone that he could lead the clan and that he would make any decisions by emotion. AKA he didn’t want to be called a pussy.
Essential Virtues: Achieving a Good Life Man has always sought after what he deemed a “good life”. A good life is being able to achieve one’s goals, pursuit of happiness, or when life’s blessings outweigh the burdens. Virtues help guide one to become morally excellent and live a fulfilling life. A virtue can be a behavior, personality trait, or habit that affects one’s emotions, perceptions and choice in life.

Odysseus is not a hero because he stabs Polyphemus in the eye and blinds him. Odysseus is still a hero because he is a leader. Moreover, after Odysseus and his men fight the Cicones, he orders ¨Back and Quickly! Out to sea again!” (Homer 984). When Odysseus commands his men to go back to sea to voyage, he is a good leader because he is telling his men what to do.
It was to get the Greeks to hide in the Trojan horse and have the people of Troy to open the gates so the Greeks would attack. In my opinion this is a very clever and outstanding idea. All of this lead his men to victory. Which proved that he was intelligent. Odysseus has his weaknesses but also his flaws.
