Comparing Odysseus, who only sought revenge so that he might, “lay plans to kill our enemies” (Homer 1082). The only one Odysseus was fighting for was his family, which is somewhat selfless but mostly selfish as he could have fought harder for his men, instead of condemning them.

At first glance of the story, it can be easy to mistake Harrison himself as the breakaway hero. After all, he is first described as "a genius and an athlete, is under-handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous" (Vonnegut 197). Not to mention his parents are two of the main characters, and this idea brings the "child saving the parents (along with everyone else) in need" trope to life (think Harry Potter avenging the deaths of his parents). Harrison 's looks and sheer strength were said to have awed those of even Thor, the god of thunder (198). What makes him unable to be the hero, however, is his selfishness and delusional attitude.

The author explained how Star Wars is a mystico-religio-scientiﬁc human drama that gives life mystery and volatility. According to Chapter 3: The Force Be With You, “…platonic dualism of matter and spirit adopted in varying degrees by Christian theology has simply been dissolved in the Force…” (Caputo, 85). What do you think are the consequences of this alteration if there are any? I found it problematic when he stated that “…Star Wars is to withdraw within… [and to] …recollect your senses…”
In that past, women have had a false image of sexuality, weakness, and self- consciousness. Now, women in today’s culture have taken on a new role, a much stronger role. Countless movies and television shows have powerful and inspiring female roles who deviate from female characters in the past.
