When Odysseus and his crew were on the island of the Cyclopes, “straight forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it deep in his crater eye” (Homer 570). The spike was so heavy that it required 5 men, including Odysseus, to ram the spike into the Cyclop’s eye. Not only did they have to carry the spike, they also had to run and leap into the Cyclops in order to stab his eye. Odysseus and a few others also killed over 100 suitors, “While he had arrows he aimed and shot, and every shot brought down one of his huddling enemies” (Homer 612). He then continued to kill every suitor with a bow and arrow as they rushed at him when Telemachus went to grab his armor and sword.
With endless challenges, “no more than an arrow shot away is Charybdis, a monster whirlpool that swallows everything near it three times a day” (www.cliffnotes.com). It takes a long time for Odysseus pondering whether to leave his men behind or being all swallowed up by the whirlpool. Leaving six men behind they sail away as quickly as possible with their hearts full with guilt and hatred. With one more challenge to surpass, they can not head home until they are completely
Luci had heard on the news that there had been an increase of illegal shark fishing in his area. He felt himself being dragged up to the surface in this harsh net. Suddenly, everything in his beady eyes went dark. He could have sworn he felt the water turn frigid and black clouds form in the sky above him. He sensed the net starting to cut through his skin, and he grimaced from the pain.
When he went outside, the sun was high in the sky, the wind slightly blowing, and it felt like a hundred degrees. He scanned around looking for the animal, saw the gopher defecating on a broken watermelon, so he pulled out his bow, and shot a couple of arrows at it. He missed, and the gopher retreated to its tunnel. He poured the gasoline into the tunnel and threw a lit match hoping the gopher would burn; nevertheless, the gopher escaped and ran into his house. William chased after it throwing knives at it and he shot the rest of his arrows, but he missed and all of the knives and arrows went through the walls and destroyed some household ornaments.
Wild animals sounds combined to make a prophecy echoed by the rattling leaves, “Oh Zeus, Metis will bear a child, a girl child. But if she bears again, it will be a son who will depose you as you deposed Cronos.” (Page 9) The next day he found Metis and opened his mouth and swallowed her. He had an insufferable headache. It felt as if someone inside him was poking him with a spear. Hephaestus jumped back after he hammered open Zeus’s head, as the mighty skull opened as a tall young girl in armor carrying a spear leaped out of his head.
Their differences range from the elements they represent, personalities, and physical appearances. In Christian mythology, long ago there lived a dragon in the province of Libya who terrorized the citizens of a nearby town. He stole their maidens and breathed his poisonous breath for twenty-four years. He resided in “a pond like a sea” ( de Voragine Web), with skin harder than brass. In Norse mythology, there was another dragon, or sea serpent, named Jormungand, who was so large his coils wrapped around the
How he was caught is an interesting tale indeed, one day he was hacking away at all of the people at a crowded fair when his master came to and told him to stop, which, he did but at that very moment he was tased by the police, handcuffed and thrown in a spudmobile. As the spudmobile drove away he saw that his master was only a hologram. Later on he was put in jail with a larger, uglier potato who was later lead away to be executed. Then when another came after a tall policeman with a grey mustache he realized that he was going to be led away for execution. 2-3-17 In the courtroom there was a tall burly man with a black hood and the biggest vegetable blender you have ever seen loly potato was trembling with fear his legs felt like jelly and he dreamed of his spud-mobile he left so long ago.
Piggy's arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig's after it has been killed.” As the conch explodes, and one of the main defenders of democracy dies, so does society. The boys have lost all sense of civilization and society and have turned completely “savage” in their minds. Now being controlled with fear by Jack, they have no choice but to follow his orders. Jack yells at the boys “I’m warning you. I’m going to get angry.
