The Ithacan king is intelligent, loyal to his wife, and has a intimate relationship with the gods. In our modern society, just recently it has not been expected of to be religious. On the other hand, being clever, cunning, and intelligent, is still something that is well respected. Equally as respected as being a loyal spouse. However, The Odyssey also taught that a hero is never perfect.
(Homer.5.50-51). Both Melinda and Odysseus are being forced to do something they don't want to against their will, and it leads to great suffering, for Odysseus begins to miss his wife very much, and feels guilty because of what he has done, and Melinda feels like everyone hates her and wishes her gone because she called the police at the party, but then got to scared to actually explain
Although his uncle wanted to separate him from the queen, he didn’t give up but fought for his love. That’s the power love has. Tristan did a good thing to get in touch with the queen though he was banished out of the town. I would have done same or better than what he did have the queen.
Odysseus slept with two women that are not his wife because her could. Odysseus also always took the long route to everything and never took the shortest option. Odysseus killing the suitors really wasn’t because he was loyal to Penelope, it was because he did not want them using his stuff and eating his food anymore. Loyalty in a relationship is very important because they have to know that they can trust their partner, and in the Odyssey, Penelope does that but Odysseus does
One of these characters is Agamemnon himself. While he has no physical disability, Agamemnon is blind to the motives of his wife, and he is unable to see the problems he creates in his home. When Agamemnon first returns home from the Trojan War, his wife
He is my brother. (p.30-33)” The willingness and bravery of Antigone to do what she feels is right in this situation brings out her overall character traits, her stubbornness and passion. The love for their brothers are very great, but Antigone is more willing to act on her personal opinions than
It is contradictory, confusing, wrong, and sometimes fake. Creon claims his ideas and makes it clear that the state is his first priority; however, his pride clouds the true definition of state to him. Antigone rambles on about her faith to her dead family and the gods, but does not appreciate her sister as much as her dead relatives. Haimon makes it obvious that he is obedient of his father, but he truthfully is devoted to his love for Antigone. Not everything that makes itself obvious is true in life, and this goes the same for something as simple as the concept of loyalty, faith, and
The first instance that a grand event affects Odysseus includes Calypso holding him hostage on her island for seven years. Starting on page 187, Calypso holds Odysseus captive as a slave for seven years. This affects Odysseus because after Zeus convinces her to let him go, he has to build his own ship and swim for two days and two nights. Last of all, Odysseus’ whole journey back to Ithaca affects him. Most of his struggles come from when he says that no one helped him in the Trojan War and that he did everything himself.
The characters lose a part of themselves when they are searching for their true love. In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie was arguing with Jodie, while he was dying, about how he never treated her right after being together for 20 years. They revealed many things about themselves during this talk, especially how Jodie was hurt on the inside too. Janie looked at herself and realized this, “The young girl was gone, but handsome woman had taken her place”(108). This quote shows how Janie regained herself after that horrible relationship.
He talked a good game but as far as I knew, he wasn’t sneaking off with anyone nor was he bringing anyone back to my place. I assumed this was because he was being faithful. I would later found out he and his wife agreed to a divorce before he came to Thailand. For all his big talk, he remained tight-lipped about his sexual activities. After prodding him several times, he admitted he had been taking a woman to a hotel.
While I know Romeo is the the cause of his and Juliets death some might argue that it was the friar Lawrence who was the cause of the deaths. To argue for this one might say it was his fault because he allowed Romeo and Juliet to get married even though their families were arch rivals, also you could say it was his fault because he gave the sleeping potion to Juliet and did not tell Romeo she was only sleeping. While those are good points friar Lawrence wasn 't the one who made Romeo and Juliet get married it was their choice. furthermore it wasn 't his fault that Juliet drank the sleeping potion Juliet had free will like any human and it was her decision to to drink It. Finally Friar Lawrence didn 't need to tell Romeo that Juliet was only sleeping because anyone I mean anyone could tell that she was still alive because she still had color in her cheeks.

In Greek epics, tragedies, and mythology women are portrayed in various ways. Women are mainly considered to be weak and less important than men, but there are some women who are shown to be strong and heroic, despite the reputation that was placed onto them in Ancient Greek civilizations. There were two particular women that were strong and took the roles of their husbands while the men left to fight in the Trojan War. These two women were Penelope, wife of Odysseus, and Clytemnestra, wife of Agamemnon. These two women were different in how they chose to rule while their husbands were at war and how they acted once they got back.
