Integrity and Faithfulness Beowulf was written by Seamus Heaney about an amazing hero who shows all characteristics of an epic hero and exhibits both integrity and faithfulness to both his clan and family. While fighting Grendel, Beowulf knows his strength and power is more advanced than Grendel, so he decides to fight fair; Beowulf fights Grendel with no armor or weapons. “The monster's whole/body was in pain, a tremendous wound/appeared on his shoulder. Sinews split/and the bone-lappings burst. Beowulf was granted/ the glory of winning; Grendel was driven/under the fen-banks, fatally hurt,/to his desolate lair” (Heaney 814-820).
Timothy Treadwell lived in the Alaskan wilderness helping bears (“The Bear Man”). Both of these men enjoyed being in the wilderness, but sadly they both died in Alaska. After their deaths both of them received a lot of criticism. Chris McCandless received criticism saying he killed himself because he did not bring proper supplies (Krakauer
Inigo also progresses and completes a later stage, gaining the reward. “The Count screamed one final time and fell dead of fear. Inigo looked down at him… Inigo loved it” (Goldman 310). By avenging his father at last, Inigo finally gets the reward he has been seeking since childhood. Inigo Montoya, though shadowed by some of his fellow characters, is obviously the true hero.

Despite the fact that the movie was made famous based on inaccuracy of the actual true story, it still presents wonderful cinematography. There are many strays from the true story of Glass and the factious character in Punke’s novel. To start with, the setting of the true story was not of mountainous landscapes, it was mostly flat terrain. The events occur in the summertime, but the movie depicts them in winter. Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards.
His good senses are replaced with chaos, disorder, and evil. With jacks evil actions the his savagery is really starting to show us that he is getting violent. Jacks use of hunting turns him into the most savage out of all the boys. Everything he did after this point made him into the young savage that he was in the end of the book. “His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink.” This quotation, also from Chapter 4, explores Jack’s mental state in the aftermath of killing his first pig, another milestone in the boys’ decline into savage behavior.
Imagine being stranded in the most bizarre place on Earth alone and with nothing to survive with.

Then he had to adjust to life in the forest of canada. His problems were internal he was all alone in the wilderness dealing with flashbacks like his mom’s secret about how she was seeing a man behind his dad’s back. He went through so much like a hurricane and seeing a bear up close.
With a catchy name and a quirky cast, “Shattered Glass” shocks the audience with twists and turns throughout the movie. For “Shattered Glass” being one of his first well-known films, director Billy Ray, does an impressive job at making this non-fiction film entertaining and informative during the 94 minutes. His career only went up from this movie; Ray went on to co-write “Captain Phillips” and “The Hunger Games,” two of the biggest films in the movie industry to this day. “Shattered Glass” tells a compelling story of a young journalist with a bright future who threw himself into a scandalous trap to further his career and ended up getting caught in the midst of countless lies. Stephen ‘Steve’ Glass, played by Hayden Christensen, was the “younger
He talks about Rossellini, Waterman, Mccunn, and Ruess. My favorite story was McCunn’s. I didn’t see much in common between the two of them but it shows the true danger of the arctic conditions, and what happens when you don’t respect it. Just like McCandles. McCunn was careless he didn’t remember to get a way out of the arctic for winter time, he died painfully.
The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains. The natives were very cold and they were hungry; thousands of people died along the way. The constitution which was written in 1787, it states in the 5th amendment that is also part of the Bill of Rights, “ nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation”. No one can use or take someone 's property without the permission. The United States went against their own rights, they took away property from the natives, because they needed to expand, without even conversing with them.
William James once said in his book “ History is a bath of blood”, “Modern man inherits all the innate pugnacity and all the love of glory of his ancestors. Showing war’s irrationality and horror is of no effect on him. The horrors make the fascination. War is the strong life; it is life in Extremis; war taxes are the only ones men never hesitate to pay, as the budgets of all nations show us.” (303) However, this does not seem true to most returning veterans. According to two short fictional stories “ Soldier’s Home” and “ A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” two protagonists’ lives after brutal wars explicitly demonstrate the idea that they are not only pathetic survivors from battles, but also victims of relentless wars through authors’ vivid depictions of each character and elaborate arrangement of settings.
