When Paul is prevented from going to Carnegie Hall, his wish for being surrounded by beauty and luxury drive him to steal thousands of dollars then run off to live in luxury (Cather 8). Paul’s desires for returning to luxury override any sense of caution for the consequences. For example, he does not consider what his choices could do to his father’s reputation. So, his actions perfectly correlate with some of the symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder: “taking advantage of others to get what you want” as well as “having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others” (“Narcissistic Personality”). His decision to steal money and run away is driven by the anxiety his mental disorder brings when he is not surrounded by nice things.
In The Odyssey, Odysseus discovers from the ghost of his comrade Elpenor that he is dead. This evokes sadness in Odysseus, which leads him to inquire the cause of death and Elpenor explains “ 'it was all bad luck, and my own unspeakable drunkenness” (Hom. Od.11.60-61).

“ ‘Sacre tonnerre,’ said the captain, ‘but is it feared that it was that accursed Englishman himself---the Scarlet Pimpernel’”(pg 15, Orczy). It was under the disguise of an old woman that the Pimpernel was able to rescue a family of French aristocrats, from right underneath the authority's noses. Those involved in the French revolution despise him for this ability to hide himself from them with his cunning. Chaveulin grows increasingly frustrated for not being able to discover the Pimpernel due to his master disguise skills. As the story continues to develop, it is clear that even the demeanors in personal and political affairs and such are disguised; not only by the Scarlet Pimpernel, but by Marguerite as well.
The tempest is filled with all types of illusions and magical things , Illusions are basically magic that’s shown in a picture or Video. The Tempest itself is just an illusion ,” Act 1 The people on the ship was tricked into thinking they were going to drown”... Act 2 ”The people on board doesn’t know about prospero schemes”. Act 3“The people seems to think the king is strong but the king seems to have internal problems”. Another thing in the tempest about illusion is when everybody.
He vanishes after this starting episode and is supplanted by an a great deal more cocksure Captain when Roddenberry attempted once more. What's more terrible is we learn that the entire motivation behind why Talos IV is a taboo world is on account of the government became tied up with the Talosians' silly fear that securing a normal exchange relations would bring about their energy of illusions spreading, destroying others as they've crushed themselves. This fear is a trashy defense for notwithstanding any fly out to or communication with Talos IV and a far more atrocious avocation for upholding such a nonsensical law by instituting capital punishment. I was trusting for some new work that may at any rate endeavor to issue some normal explanation behind the presence of such a draconian law, however the episode didn't even truly
He becomes shocked and distressed, leading him to make reckless decisions, taking Hart and Zeke out to sea during dangerously rough weather. Michael felt ‘insecure’ after losing his wife with a fear that she may have been attacked or killed during the war. This reckless decision leads to the death of Zeke and Hart becoming permanently injured from the whirring lugger, causing Hart to retreat into a world of self-pity and shutting off the rest of the world. Hart felt into a ‘subdued kind of dreaminess’ as he indulged himself in reading books, oblivious and lost to the world outside. Both Hart and his father’s insecurities lead to a broken and damaged relationship, making it even harder to mend the strained gap between Ida and Michael as well as Hart and
The philosophical optimism Candide Voltaire's Candide use of anti-heroism as an object of ridicule against the philosophers of the Enlightenment. Candido, the hero of the novel, Travelling the world, where he meet with many difficulties. During the trip, he is liable according to the teachings of his teacher, doctor Pangloss to believe that "all good" (3). Voltaire pointed out illogic of this teaching, "when Columbus is found in the American island, a disease that affects the source of generation ... that it engages be no chocolate or cochineal" (8).

First of all, even though Odysseus changes the Phaeacians’ minds about him in Books 8-13 when he tells his story, Athena tacks initial problem-solving on the victim. According to Athena, and to Homer, it is the victim’s duty to protect themselves from what the xenophobic public might do, by hiding who they truly are. Odysseus is used to being powerful -- the most important man in the room. Hiding himself must be torture for him, which is maybe what Homer was trying to achieve. Secondly, this is not a long-term solution for Odysseus or anyone seeking long-term guidance from the story.
In the novel “The Odyssey” retold by Barbara Leonie Picard (initially by Homer), Odysseus was a significant character who changed. Throughout the story, he changed by learning how think before acting, being honest and communicating with his team, and becoming persistent toward his main goal which is going back home. He also displayed many of Art Costa’s "habits of mind” such as teamwork, persistence, and stop and think. We can learn from Odysseus’ journey as we read about him. Odysseus was a king, husband and father.
In the Odyssey the goal of getting home is more important to the development of Odysseus's character. He learns something important while on his journey that makes him a more fully developed character. He learns about the value of family. After the Trojan war, Odysseus understands that he can now go back home to his family.
Between water, floods, and sea travel, water can present itself in different functions and can be symbolic especially in the readings that we were required to read this past week. Throughout the texts, water was a major factor, but the two that I felt expressed water the most were in both the Bible (Genesis) and also the Odyssey. In both of these texts water, more specifically flooding for the Bible and sea travel in the Odyssey, represented different meaning and showcased itself through different images for the readers to grasp. Just between these two stories, it’s amazing how water can not only produce different forms throughout these stories, but after analyzing can also create different symbols and representations or interpretations.
A dynamic character is defined as a literary persona who undergoes an important inner change; a change in personality or attitude. Odysseus, main character in Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, is no exception. Despite facing the hardships of war and the challenges of the journey home, Odysseus keeps his tactical outlook. However, he does not remain the powerful and confident man that left Ithaka.
