How would one act if they discovered a potion that could change their whole life instantaneously? The short story The Chaser discusses the effects of what just a few drops of a love potion could do to someone’s life and how it will be changed forever. The idea of having everlasting love is an interesting and scary topic but this potion is something that is even scarier and could ruin one’s life completely.

I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad?” (Poe, 4) We, as the readers, are left in shock, as many would not expect that a story should start without any introduction, or at least not presenting the main character as the dreadfully nervous, hypersensitive man in the opening sentence.

Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.
