23). In conclusion Atticus’s decision to defend Tom, although dangerous, was wise on his part as described in the last paragraph. His family was put in danger, but ultimately was the right thing to do. Not only did he keep his conscience intact but he also possibly saved other black men and women from hate deaths and hate crimes. The sacrifices that he made was the right thing to do, and nothing can change
The Anglo-Saxons were a complicated people with an even more complicated society but they are nonetheless a very interesting people’s. Beowulf swiftly implied since the beginning that “courage” is the ultimate form of “greatness”(“shmoop”). Bravery and heroism comes first in the Anglo-Saxon culture because they used it to prove how worthy they were of power and if they didn’t show it they feared that they would be punished or shunned this can be shown when I Beowulf it is stated that “ Often, for undaunted courage, fate spares the man it has not already marked.” Beowulf shows courage and bravery when he fights Grendel by ripping Grendel’s arm off with his bare hands knowing he could die while trying to do this. As stated by Axel Lazno “Everything Beowulf does is a direct link to courage. Beowulf is a perfect example of an
Lastly he want to be a good example to the society showing future generation about equality in the society.Therefore, Harrison is hero to his society because, he stood against knowledge and ignorance. For Instance, in countless ways harrison impervious to restriction to society place on him. In Vonnegut’s reading ,“ Harrison’s scrap-iron handicaps crashed to the floor”(page5). The author mention this to his audience because He tried to inform the society that they have been wearing handicap for unequal.in addition, he try to protect the rights and justices of the society, and he was able to set himself for freedom. He accepted the society he detested.
Yes, Autrey was more both mentally and physically courageous, but Odysseus showed multiple acts of physical courage and started to accomplish a task that they knew was going to be difficult. Autrey thinks that “maybe I was in the right place at the right time, and good things happen for good people” (Lee 2), which may also be the case for Odysseus. In the end, both Autrey and Odysseus were courageous in their own ways, but both took a risk they knew was going to be hard. They proved through their acts that they were courageous, and are still being talked about and rewarded
However, heroism can take place in our everyday lives by simple brave actions. A hero has many noble qualities such as courage, humility, patience, being selfless and caring. They will put other people before themselves and make sure others are content. Heros are also intelligent and like to think ahead to plan on a good result. Although Victor very well fits the role of a tragic hero with a fatal flaw, he also fits the role of a hero.
In addition, they perform duties in a way that inspires and passes on for generations. In comparison between Beowulf and Katniss, Beowulf emerges as a more effective hero since he possesses more qualities of an epic hero than Katniss. Even though both characters have similar traits, Beowulf displays more epic traits than Katniss. Also, Beowulf is written in an epic language and the hero battles many supernatural beings, unlike Katniss. However, Katniss and Beowulf are both important epic heroes in their own narratives and have similar traits and distinctive
Scout then recalls Atticus’s opinion on the matter. “I have to defend Tom Robinson because it’s the right thing to do. I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do the right thing. Even though other people might think I’m wrong for defending a black man, I know that it’s right,” proudly acknowledges Atticus. Finally, the most significant example of Atticus’s impartial nature occurs when Jem finds out the news that Ms.Dubose has died.
Had to say about race and being Anti-American he wanted to prove America wrong and that he could be this country's next president. He comes to say that we as American have to be respectful to one another and that we shouldn't worry about the color of our skin but instead we should work to get great education for our children and improve our jobs and have better healthcare for those who do not or can not afford it. He also addresses that all those men and women who have fought in our battles, battles that shouldn't of evened happened it's time to give back to them and bring them back to be with their families and caring for them and their families and show them our respect and how thankful we are for them having to risk their lives so we could have a better
What makes him heroic is that he is willing to show his true potential even at the risk of punishment, or even death. His courage is an immense contrast to his father, who only suffers his handicap, showing that people need to live up to their potential and be brave to change the world. Looking away and adapting to wrong actions is not acceptable. In Contrast Harrison storms in saying he is “the emperor, (…) the greatest ruler who has ever lived” and “everybody must do what (he says)”, he sounds power-mad, perhaps even insane. Vonnegut says that individuals need to fight only to make his hero a power-hungry godlike creature, being both an unreachable ideal and unreliable threat.
He wanted to believe that the colonist would eventually give in but that was never the case. King George III was a smart man but let his power hungry personality get in the way of his rational decision making. Killing England gives the readers insight on what was actually going on during the time of the American Revolution. Many people such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and many others paved this road for us today to live in this great nation. Their hard work and sacrifice is something honorable to look at.
Harrison may be a hero to some and may not be to others because everyone has a different point of view and witness the situation from different positions. However, in my point of view, he is a hero because he had an effort, was brave, and his goal was heroic. In most societies what he did would make him a hero. In the story, all people were facing the same law. They (including George and Hazel) had an instinct that it was wrong, but no one was willing to break out of it.
Tom’s life was about his faith and how he conquered obstacles in his life because of his will power. His belief saved him, and if only more slaves are like him. They could have made it and eventually tasted freedom. Slavery should not have happened, if only whites accepted the fact that people are all equal regardless of their skin color. The Civil War took more lives than WWI and Vietnam War combined.
