He knows he and his men have to get off the island before they eat the lotus flower and have no care in the world. “I drove them all three wailing, to the ships, tied them down under their rowing bench and called the rest.”(Homer 602) He wants to get home, so he has to get the men back that he sent out looking over the island. When he gets them he has to drag them back because they ate the lotus flower and want to stay with the other people that eat the flower too. He also did not want to leave without them. This shows that he cares for himself and his crew.
Johnny, Ponyboy, and Dally are all heroes they face danger overcome it and they all sacrificed something. These are some more examples on how these three brothers are heroes. Johnny was a hero a couple of times in the story. First he saved his brother Ponyboy from drowning. Now thats love.
This is a trait that Odysseus possesses. He shows bravery in many chapters of The Odyssey. One example of his bravery is when Odysseus saved his crew from the sirens. If they hear the sirens song, they would be enchanted and then crash the ship. “Soften some beeswax and stop your shipmates ears so none can ear, none of the crew, but if you are bent on hearing, have them tie you hand and foot in the swift
Odysseus uses his mind to save the Akhaians rather than his physical strength by keeping Antiklos from giving away their disguise, ultimately demonstrating Odysseus’ wittiness is stronger than his physical strength when he faces challenges. Odysseus uses his mental abilities on his way home to Ithaca when they encounter the Seirenes. First, he ordered his crew to stuff their ears with beeswax in order to block out the voices of the Seirenes songs and cries. He then and commands them to tie him to the mast of the ship, so that he is the only one who can hear the calls of the Seirenes, but can not tell the crew to go towards them. This allowed him and his crew to successfully avoid the deadly
The main in the water gave everything he had to fight nature’s wrath. Rosenblatt demonstrates the man in the water's overpowering kindness through his humanity. A major theme of Rosenblatt’s article was kindness because the man in the water was so strong. He firmly gave up life, in order to save others. You can guarantee he wasn’t just sitting in the water.
Odysseus was in the form of a beggar and couldn’t stop and say hello to Argus because it would expose him as Odysseus, but they both recognized each other. Odysseus shed a tear to Argus who used all of his last energy to perk up for Odysseus, “He did his best to wag his tail, nose down, with flattened ears, having no strength to move closer to his master,” (Homer 723). Odysseus had finally returned to Argus who had waited for him. Now that Argus had seen his master once again he was content and ready to let go. The moment after Odysseus past death took over Argus’
In Homer’s The Odyssey, Odysseus is an effective leader in chapter twelve. A leader who has too much pride is now showing too much humbleness for what’s important by following all the things he has told to do to save his crew and himself. He does what he is told to do to save his crew and keep them safe. “ But now, fearing death , all eyes fixed on Charybdis now Scylla snatched six men from our hollow ship, the toughest, strongest hands I had, and glancing backwards over the decks, searching or my crew I could see their hands and feet already hoisted, failing, high, higher, over my head, look wailing down at me, comrades riven in agony. Shrieking out my name for one last time” ( XII 265-270).
McMurphy also exhibits attributes of a leader or perhaps an individual whom all the other men trust more and leads them all on a journey to become proud and confident again. In the end, even though McMurphy suffers a great deal, he is shown as a capital figure he is willing to sacrifice what he has in order to save the other men in the hospital. One of the main times the men decide to defy the nurse and ward rules is when they decide to plan a fishing trip. This is an absolute crucial part of McMurphy’s story because of the fact that it references directly to the bible, Matthew eight. In the story, Jesus goes out on a boat with his twelve disciples when they are hit by a storm.
My artistic representation is of the lotus flower. In the Odyssey Odysseus's ship sailed off course onto the island of the lotus eaters. The people on the island worship the lotus as if it were another greek god, which is why they feed people the flowers. They had been blown off course many times because Poseidon cursed him to never go home. While on the island Odysseus’s men ate the lotus flower and got caught under its spell.
