Alexander Hamilton, the founder of the American Federalist Party, stated, “there is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism” (Brainy Quote). Odysseus’s specialty of heroism works to gain his liberty in the story of the Cyclops. In the myth, he, a mighty adventurer, becomes a legend after he defeats a Cyclops named Polyphemus and successfully escapes from the cave. His actions impress every person in ancient Greece; therefore, he is admired by the society.

Beowulf is a despicable leader that is able to lead his men to victory like the time they hunted and took down Grendel.

A hero that is willing to give their all and not give up when there is an immense obstacle up ahead.

In The Iliad and Beowulf, there are several moments we see how elated the warriors get from fighting and winning battles. Both Beowulf and Achilles describes how powerful they are. From slaying many in the Trojan War, or by defeating sea monsters and dragons, we can tell both men are the greatest warriors of all time. While similar in many ways, because they are both heroes from a different setting and time period, there are also many differences between them.
Beowulf, a brave warrior, had good characters which make me think he was a true hero. Brave was Beowulf, kind to men, of extraordinary strength, warrior in Danes, loved by all the Danes. Beowulf was so brave that he had the courage to fight with Grendel, one of mankind’s most bitter enemies, Grendel’s mother, a terrible sea-monster, and finally killed them. A warrior who had strong stature, great strength can’t be a hero, unless he was brave enough that he can use his strength to protect his people. Beowulf was the hero who used his power rightly to protect his people.
Woodville shows a feeling of pride through the setting, symbolism, and powerful imagery. Tennyson uses repetition, imagery, and tone to convey his feeling of pride of the Light Brigade. One literary device he uses is repetition. While on the battlefield, the Light Brigade faces a “cannon to the right of them, [a] cannon to the left of them, [and a] cannon in front of them.” Through this image of bombardment Tennyson reveals the men are surrounded by multiple powerful weapons and that there is little chance of them surviving. Yet the men are still relentless and brave while fighting despite being aware of the dangers surrounding them.
