When people study the story enough they can see their favorite characters through thin veils. On the whole, The Odyssey is a story of wit, bravery, and determinism. This story teaches people to think outside of the box and to persevere no matter what they are trying to do. “survive alone, bereft of all companions, lost for years”(Homer 973), and to, “make a fair sacrifice to Lord Poseidon”(Homer 974).

The boys, in turn, take interest in Mr. Keating’s teachings, they take the idea if they are going to die one day, to heart, and begin to live their lives to the fullest.
In Burton Raffel's, epic poem, Beowulf, one of the main values that stand out is essentially culture. Beowulf, the hero of all hero’s shows this through his willingness to come so close to death day after day, his insistence on having humility and being loyal to people in need.
