Jefferson went through an intense change and through that change he went from being a not so well know kid from the town to a hero.

Although Okonkwo is influenced by masculinity it is because the Ibo culture believes in men dominating women which leads their society to fall

Beowulf and Archilles are two kings. Beowulf, I find, is a good ruler, unlike Archilles. They both like doing something heroic alone just to get the fame for it, but they’re both really different from each other. I believe Beowulf is a better fit for modern times.
