As the great American author Mario Puzo one said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.”This is saying that loyalty gives people the ability to work together and succeed in anything they set out to do. In The Odyssey, written by Homer and translated by Robert Fagles, they really learn the power on relying on one another and seeing why loyalty is so really important in life and so nothing can get in the way to succeed in life. And as the story is going through the journeys of Odysseus he learns different way to get all the tasks and challenges done and still try to find a way home to get back to his wife and his only child. Even though he does put his crew in some unpromising situations,

Emma Arent Mrs. Aumann Honors English 9 Block 3BC 5 February 2017 The Great Man Odysseus When looking up the definition of a “good guy” you find the description being a morally correct person or character : a hero. In the book The Odyssey, translated by Robert Fagles, the main character Odysseus can be described as “good guy”. When Odysseus sets out from his home, Ithaca to fight in a long war, he is faced with many problems that lead him to fighting for himself by occasionally being violent to protect himself. The issue with this is that some readers get the idea that he is just violent, which makes him a bad man. Although Odysseus can be violent sometimes, he is a good man because he is a good husband, he always looks out for his crew and
My most preferred myth, Demeter, shows Zeus being a good god and causing a positive impact on those around him. Consequently, it is my firm opinion that Zeus serves a favorable role in Greek mythology. Many famous Greek myths, including Kronos and Zeus, show Zeus being a satisfactory god. The myth states, “They came of age and, when the time was right, they agreed to help fulfill the prophecy that would unseat Kronos from his throne” (Kronos and Zeus 1). Kronos was a terrible titian, he was very selfish and worried more about his power than his own children.
When he was given a choice between long, uneventful, but happy life and forthcoming, but glorious death on the battlefield, he chose the latter, preferring eternal fame to family life. The theme of kleos can be explained by the hero cult, which was widely popular during Classical times. Heroes were a major component of Greek religion and of equal importance as gods, but their attraction consisted in the fact that they were local and therefore more exclusive than the gods. They were important to the Greeks as they were closer to humans than gods, and helped define the limits of human aspirations, acting as symbols for all of the qualities humans wished to possess and dreams they wished to realise. Depiction of a hero in the Iliad differs from Troy.
Heroes can range from the well-known Superman to Harriet Tubman during the American Civil War, to the very parents that get you up in the morning. Despite who the hero may be, heroes are said to display selflessness, humility, and integrity. Specifically, epic heroes are expected to also illustrate loyalty and devotion. In the Odyssey by Homer, Odysseus is depicted as the bigger than life epic hero of the epic poem that has had such an overwhelming impact on Western culture. However, his character flaws and the byproduct that are their consequences negate his heroism.
Salvation of man is through love; and strength is found through love and loved ones in life. Showing interest in many things and not waiting last minute to get things done is all part of psychological survival. The most important idea in the film is helping others makes humans better people. It’s the idea to “better man” that is an important part of helping
