Eurylochus got what he deserved because Odysseus told them to swear they wouldn 't eat the cattle and they all told Odysseus they wouldn 't. Eurylochus made the whole crew turn against Odysseus and disobey his orders. Eurylochus convinced the crew to go behind Odysseus’ back and do what they were told not while Odysseus was sleeping by saying “Comrades, he said, you 've gone through everything; listen to what I say. All deaths are hateful to us, mortal wretches, but famine is the most pitiful, the worst end that a man can come to. Will you fight it?...better open your lungs to a big sea once for all then waste to skin and bones on a lonely island”(pg 841 L221-257).
However, Ralph and Jack try to make them believe that there are no monsters. Yet, one littlun tells the group that he has seen the beast come from the ocean. This then causes a chaotic situation because Jack wants to kill the beast; all of the boys leave except for Ralph, Simon and Piggy. Though Ralph doesn’t call them back because he is afraid that if he blows the conch and the kids don't return then the power he has would be disintegrated. Summary 6 In the night, Sam and Eric are the ones that were suppose to watch the signal fire,
In this passage from The Odyssey, Homer uses an epic simile comparing Odysseus’ crew to calves and Odysseus to a cow and a second simile comparing Odysseus to Ithaca in order to portray the sense of reliance and loyalty the men have for their leader. In the book, Odysseus has just returned from Circe’s palace where some of the crew had disappeared. Since the men chosen to venture into Circe’s home did not return, the rest of the crew thought Odysseus would also not make it back to the ship. When Homer writes that the men are, “bucking out of their pens, lowing nonstop, jostling, rushing round their mothers (455-456),” he conveys the men’s desparation to get to Odysseus. The phrase, “bucking out of their pens (455),” refers to the fact that Odysseus’ crew is trapped and helpless without him.
“A man can be destroyed but not defeated” (103). The old man makes the comparison between destruction and defeat, making the audience question if he is defeated or destroyed by his pain or pride. Santiago saw the marlin as a great loss, but the sharks took the fisherman’s glory when they stripped away the marlin for its flesh. The fisherman’s view of losing the marlin and the battle against the sharks creates the vision of the glass being half empty, in a rhetorical structure. “He is beautiful and noble and knows no fear of anything” (106).
He blindly trusts that people will not succumb to greed or treat him differently “Kino, so that he became curiously everyman 's enemy...The neighbors looked at the pearl in Kinos hand and they wondered how such luck could come to any man.” (23-24) In this quote we can see how Kino showed everyone in his village the pearl and they all became his enemy in a sense because greed had overtaken them. Kino a man of few words, does not give a thought to how this might affect others and even plans what he is going to do almost bragging in a way about what he is going to do with the money he will get from the pearl. Speaking on the topic of the pearl brings me to yet another example of Kinos blind trust, but this time in the pearl itself. Kino throughout the book is presented with the negative effects from the pearls presents. At one point Kino kills a man just to keep the pearl then punishes his wife for trying to get rid of
For example, during the August heat, the fish stop biting because they swim to the bottom of the river bed to keep cool. Peyton solves this problem with the help of Preacher Henry, who provides her with some helpful information that she needs to catch the bass. Frank writes, “‘How would I get them? Nobody’s been able to net any bass bait - no shiners.’ ‘That’s the trouble,’ Preacher said. ‘The little fish he gets hot too and so he’s out there in the middle deep…’ Peyton
The theme for Homer's The Odyssey Book 9 would be to stay in the real world and not to fall for bliss, or emotional wealth. The reason for this is that Odysseus and his men land on the island and get sucked right into it and fall under the Lotus Eaters spell. “But gave them lotus plants to eat, whose fruit, sweet as honey, made any man who tried it lose his desire ever to journey home” (Homer, Lines 121-123). They all fall under this bliss and had to physically be forced off of the island. The theme is different in Tennyson’s poem “The Lotus Eaters”, the theme is to let the bliss control, let death come.
Odysseus just wants to get home to his family, and he is the commander of his men. He also looks out for his men, saving them several times. Odysseus also doesn’t try to get treasure or plunder towns. On one occasion where Odysseus was not looking out for himself is when he and a few of his men are stranded on Helios’s island, and Odysseus warns them not to kill the cattle. Another example is when his home and family are being taken over by the suitors, uninvited, and he kills them, a right and just punishment.
The lack of communication throughout the whole journey home will eventually lead to mistrust and betrayal of Odysseus by his crew. Following Scylla and Charybdis they reach the island of the god of the sun, and because of the crew’s spite for Odysseus they don’t follow his directions not to harm the cattle of the Sun. Just in the events of the journey back to Ithaca alone the reader can see how Odysseus’ inability to be a strong leader leads to the dismantling of a good relationship between him and his crew, which leads to a much more difficult trip. Odysseus’ inability to be a great leader for the group leads to a lot of conflict among the crew members. Some point
In the film, the bushman shoots an animal with a tranquilizer dart and waits until the animal slows down to go to sleep; before killing the animal, bushmen would apologize for killing the animal and explained that he must do it so that his family could eat. This action was important because it showed that the bushmen hunted only out of necessity and never for fun or sport. The bushmen also seemed content with their lives despite our judgment on the life of the tribes ,etc. The bushmen seemed to have nothing such as private or personal property and they shared their food with everyone. This situation changed suddenly after they discovered what they called “gift from the gods” which was a empty coke bottle.
Similar to the idea of heaven in the afterlife in christianity. As Tony was having an epiphany about God a huge fish shot out of the calm water of the river, “The evil mouth of the black bass was open and red. Its eyes were glazed with hate as it hung in the air surrounded by churning water...” (Anaya 105). Antonio begins to think about God and sin, the black bass rips through the water as a coherent symbol of evil and wrong. Antonio hopes his first communion will be as harmonious as his

Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
