He argues, “I just lost my nephew and his entire family in a span of hours. The people have just lost their beloved Queen and King, and will need a moment to mourn before placing another on the throne so quickly.” “Uncle, you of all people knows what happens to a throne that sits empty. This must happen tonight, to ensure the safety of our realm.” “How dare you!”
When these words left my mouth, the boy in the middle flinched as if I was going to hit him. “It is okay, not everyone can remember my name, and I am fine with it. So you all want a story, eh.” They all nodded, the middle one still looked embarrassed. “I’ll tell the story of how I got my name, and how I became a mercenary.
This shows that to make no one above others, all inventions have been removed from their society. The biggest conflict Rand manipulates to make Anthem dystopian is man vs. self. Multiple times, Equality is stuck, searching for words that he doesn’t know exist. He always uses the word “we” to refer to himself. That is, until Equality escapes from his society into the Uncharted Forest and stumbles upon an aged house from the “Dark Ages” full of information about that time period.
Odysseus was not very happy and takes up action against these men. After defeating all the men, Odysseus was able to get his wife back, and take back control over his kingdom. In some ways one could say The Odyssey is a metaphor for life. It could be a metaphor because both life and Odysseus journey are long, and both are filled with good and bad times.
After completing the task with ease, Odysseus and Telemachus battle and kill all the suitors and Odysseus’ bravery shines brightly after successfully completing multiple challenges. The Land of the Dead is a place no man wants to end up and is described as a “‘...place of death and sorrow.’” ; this is his abyss. He is forced to recognize his mortality and he realizes how much he misses his family. Long before this, Odysseus met the first of two temptations, Calypso.
Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death; most run with fear when they hear these words, these names. At one point in time they were quiet, unknown to the human world, walking alone in their own universe. It wasn 't until they collided, completely oblivious to the powers that each of them inherited from birth which sat, awaiting the moment they could burst from the souls of their captors. Regulation of these events was done thoroughly through the years leading up to the breaking of the Seal 's, uncontrollable killings of all sorts taking over when these beings were released.
At this point in the poem, it has been fifty years since Beowulf crushed Grendel and Grendel’s mother; therefore, Beowulf is now fairly old. However, despite his age, he insists on fighting the dragon. He says, “I feel no shame, with shield and sword/And armor, against this monster: when he comes to me/ I mean to stand, not run from his shooting/Flames, stand till fate decides/Which of us wins.” (page 57, lines 635-639).
Cavalry commander at age eighteen, king at twenty, conqueror of the Persian Empire at twenty-six, explorer of the Indian frontier at thirty, Alexander the Great died before his thirty-third birthday: neither the ancient sources nor the modern literature take sufficient note of this brilliant commander’s extreme youth. He was widely despised by many of the subject Greeks, whose attitude might best be summed up by the comment attributed to one Athenian orator who, when informed of Alexander’s death, replied, “What? Alexander dead? Impossible!
It has been moons since I got your last letter, I have missed you every time the cycle of light and dark start anew. I’m sorry I could not reply sooner, but the enemy is constantly on the move. I don’t know when this letter will get to you, but know that this war will let up be free from the control of the bipeds that once called themselves humans. Their destructing in the oceans and land is growing daily. Me and my tropes are doing all that they can to stop the bloodshed that they are causing in the oceans that lye between the ice of the north and the iron filled polluted waters of the south.

A hero is defined as a person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. When looking at the epic poem The Odyssey, written by Homer, Odysseus ,the protagonist in the poem shows outstanding achievements, courage and bravery .

Usually behind every great team there is a great leader leading the way. Rather it be the president of a country, or the manager of a convenient store, leaders pave the way to make sure everyone is successful. A great example of a leader is Odysseus. Odysseus was faced to save his men from the Lotus Eaters, he had to reap the repercussions of the men opening the air bags, and he was forced to take the fall for his men eating Hilo’s cattle. In my opinion, not only do they pave the way to ensure everyone’s success, but they also take on the responsibility of the actions of the people they supervise, and here’s how.
Homer, a poet from ancient Greece, wrote The Odyssey in which the values of the Greeks are revealed. As the hero, Odysseus, embarks on a journey home from Troy after ten years of war, one sees the traits that he is praised and rebuked for.
