Lastly, “I am certain he would have loved to see the frightening rubble and the dwelling of the sky on the night he passed away” (Zusak 242) This can be both beautiful and brutal, the fact that he died is the brutality of the situation but the description of the beautiful events that have made it past adds beauty to the story. The reader can relate to both sides, and with the help of imagery based on the sense of feeling, it explains everything
In his mind, he believes that Baba will send Ali and Hassan away, and, as a result, he will finally gain some peace. To Amir’s surprise, Hassan confesses to stealing his gifts without hesitation symbolizing “Hassan’s final sacrifice for [him]” (105). At that moment, Amir realizes that Hassan knew of his betrayal, which added to his already guilty conscience. Hassan could have easily told Baba the truth and he would have believed him because”[everyone] knew that Hassan never lied”, which, in turn, would ruin Amir’s relationship with his father (105). He probably knew that Amir was unworthy of his sacrifice, that he was the “snake in the grass, the monster in the lake”, but he lied for Amir’s own benefit
He pulled the trigger.” Steinbeck does not covey characters emotions in the novella; the line of description here gives us insight to George’s battle of conscience.

George killing Lennie can be interpreted as George demonstrating his allegiance to Lennie.
He was of course killed by Klytaimestra who had left him for Aigisthos. Down in the underworld, Agamemnon still hates her, telling Odysseus that there is "nothing more deadly than a woman who stores in her mind with acts that are of such sort" (11.427-28). He believes that his death could have, and would have, been avoided had Klytaimestra remained loyal, and he is most certainly right. It was only through the willingness of Klytaimestra to marry Aigisthos that allowed the events to follow as they did. This played a large factor in the planning of Odysseus, especially after the words of Agamemnon telling him to "not be too easy with even your own wife" (11.441-42).
However, he would have to spend the rest of his life thinking that he has killed his best friend, and that he can never atone for it. George’s act of violence solved one problem but, it only caused another one. Gandhi explained this best when he said, “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is

He also provides the leadership characteristic with making men follow his every move and really questioning him. Most importantly he almost perfectly follows Joseph Campbell's hero cycle.

Calypso is madly in love with odysseus and unwilling to let him leave and furthermore Odysseus has no ship or crew to help him get home.

From experiencing it first hand, to living with it and its consequences, and then finally redeeming himself, his entire life is shaped by one experience. One experience that fills him with remorse. The one bright day of kite running that turns to darkness. As Amir progresses through life trying to redeem himself, Hosseini displays that no matter how grand one’s misconduct is, if he or she truly is looking for redemption it will be achieved. As children, people often act in ways that will please their parents.
A real hero doesn’t kill even if their honor and pride has been torn to shreds, yet Odysseus killed all those suitors because they were ransacking his house and eating his goods. So to answer the question, is Odysseus a real hero, Odysseus isn’t a real hero. Odysseus is a warrior who does whatever it takes to win and protect his people. Odysseus is nothing but a
Because the men had seen so much in Vietnam and because of how the war was fought (Guerrilla warfare), they had little to no remorse when gunning down children and woman. They were so tired of fighting the “unknown enemy,” this can be seen in the soldier 's testimonies, “I didn’t discriminate between individuals in the village, sir. They were all the enemy, they were to be destroyed, sir.” (141) However, John never intended to kill the innocent. He saw the same soldiers that he fought with for the past few months brutally massacring the villagers that were trying to flee for their lives. This was the climax of the war for John, he would forever be changed by what he saw in My Lai and would take many months in order to get over what happened.
