Both Odysseus and Everett attempted to get back home to their wife with crews that were very unlike,but had some similarities to each other. Odysseus had many men 600 to be exact and they knew to an extent what they were getting into. Each one of Odysseus’s men in The Odyssey choose to go or were forced to go to the Trojan War, but they knew the end goal of beating the Trojans. Everett only had two men, Pete and Delmar, and they had no idea what they were getting into. Unlike Odysseus’s crew they had no idea what the end goal was.
Odysseus has clearly learned not to be impulsive in his decision-making from his past errors, for example on the island of the Laestrygonians and that of the Cyclops, his bad decision making cost many of his men their lives. This decision to wait and contemplate where he is and think about his decision is very smart because at his palace, there is a “world of pain” (11.132). If he ran home, he might have been killed by the suitors. This question shows that after suffering so much, he finally has learned patience. In response to this, and his whole speech, Athena praises him and says he is “so winning” and he is “worldly-wise” (13.377,77).
Everything which Odysseus encounters is something which he could have handled solo. Polyphemus left Odysseus with the task of handling several men in addition to himself. Also, Odysseus is made to backtrack by his crew, including traveling all the way back to Circe’s island to clean up after someone who slipped up. On the other hand, Inman is constantly put at risk by Veasey’s actions throughout their journey as he consistently breaks the law whenever an opportunity to do so offers benefits to the greedy
His modesty came to a test. Odysseus has to hide his identity from everyone, including his wife and children as a beggar. He has to endure all the insults that came out from all the suitors. If he had failed to do so, he may not have the chance to oust the suitors and get his family back. On the other hand, Everett has started to act more considerately, he no longer thinks that he is the leader of the chain gang, and starts to think so them as more of a companion.
Consequently, Walter Mitty’s daydreams aid the plot of the movie to move forward.

She would rather live life in a brash and carefree manner than call herself spiritual or noble. “I’m damned bad for a religious atmosphere. I’ve the wrong type of face.” (Hemingway, 56).

Strength and power can allure an individual to a point where the appeal is intoxicating them so greatly that they are incapable of either realizing or resisting the attraction. As a result, it mutates their sense of reality to the point of no return. This connects strongly to one of the major conflicts the boys struggle within Lord of the Flies written by William Golding. In the novel, Golding displays the boys' conflict with power and order. In the beginning, the boys are eager and celebratory about being alone on this island with no adults since now they can be in charge.
They would both constantly cheat on each other and have relationships with other partners, however they did not get a divorce due to their own selfish reasons.
