Although was very loyal, he was not a great leader due to selfishness. He decides to go into the Cyclops’ cave. As a result of his act of selfishness, he and his men were placed e in danger. Last but not least, Odysseus does not tell his men about Scylla, so that he can live and let his men die. This shows how selfish he is in order to protect his own life.
Because of Gregor's change, he is treated with care from his sister, but the bond starts to erase when Gregor's family members see him as a disgusting being and a waste of space, so they move away from thinking the giant bug in the apartment is Gregor. Remember, Gregor had no factor on whether he changed form or not. It just happened. In “The Metamorphosis” by Franz Kafka, Gregor samsa is forced to be an outsider from society. A reason why Gregor is forced to be an outsider by society is he never had a choice to change form to cockroach but he was still treated poorly by his family.
The others say that Odysseus is “dumb and oblivious”, when making decisions. Those people that disagree about what I have to say about Odysseus is society. Society has there own point of view of how they want to see things or in other words, a “perspective”. For example, society believes that Odysseus is a bad leader because he fell asleep and let his crew die from letting them eating the cattle. The public only focuses on the bad things he do and not really the good stuff he does.
According to “The Cyclops” from Homer's Odyssey, Odysseus and his man enter a cave in which the single-eye man-eating giant live. Cyclope found them and thought they were the bad guy. So Cyclope trapped them in the cave and started eating Odysseus’s crew. “We felt a pressure on our hearts,” Odysseus recalled,”We cried aloud, lifting our hands to Zeus, powerless, looking on at this, appalled.” As we all know, they finally got out. From the case above, we know that Odysseus does afraid of Cyclops, and that have just perfectly proofed that bravery is not the absence of fear.
When they approach they ask who ruined him and the Cyclops answers, “Nobody, Nobody's tricked me, Nobody's ruined me!” (9. 317). Earlier in the poem when The Cyclops asks Odysseus for his name, Odysseus tells him the name is Nobody. This takes a tremendous amount of intelligence which is why Odysseus is known for his cleverness. When Odysseus finally returns home, he has Athena disguise him so he can look at how his home has been going without him.
In chapters 14-16, Mary Shelley teaches the readers that the monster is very lonely and didn 't have any friends. Satan had his companions, fellow-devils, to admire and encourage him; but i am solitary and abhorred.” The monster yelled and asked his creatour why he created him and him only and asked why Victor made him so ugly looking. “Do not despair. To be friendless is indeed to be unfortunate, but the hearts of men, when unprejudiced by any obvious self-interest, are full of brotherly love and charity. Rely, therefore, on your hopes: and if these friends are good and amiable, do not despair.” (page 95) The old man is saying that it is okay if you don 't have friends.
A hero is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities. In the movie, Odysseus shows that he is a hero by showing off his bravery and courage to defeat several monsters. He showed courage when he faced the Cyclops, when he met Lotus Eaters, and when he went back to Ithaca to see his wife. Odysseus and his men went to the cave to show the Cyclops that they are better than him. The Cyclops got angry when he got back to his cave since Odysseus and his men were eating the Cyclops’ food.
“I was Grendel, Ruiner of Meadhalls, Wrecker of Kings! But also, as never before, I was alone.” (Grendel, p. 80) Grendel says this depressing statement when he learns that the enchantment placed upon him by the dragon has left him unable to be harmed by the Scylding's weapons. He vainly basks in his new-found glory, but he soon has the realization that his imperviousness has now separated him even more from the place he yearns for among men. In a flash of insight, Grendel recognizes that his condition has not improved, but has instead become much more hopeless as he seeks a place in this world. "Why can't I have someone to talk to?"
White Zombie uses body limitations, such as Charles Beaumont’s lack of speech, to also express fears. The zombies in the film are mute and unable to express themselves once they have been transformed. This is a metaphor for how people during the Great Depression felt about their situations. Most experienced poverty at the time, but had no way to speak out against everything they were going through because the whole nation was having the same issues as
“They passed the place where the tribe danced...NO one doubted that the tribe would be found at Castle Rock”(174). Referring back to WWII, Britain and France were so afraid and scared from WWI that they let Germany do what they pleased to avoid another war at any cost. In the novel they use the place where they danced as the horrifying scar of WWI and leaving the tribe as the Axis power or tyrants in their powerful nation. That’s when a savior came from the ocean,“A naval officer stood in the sand, looking down at Ralph in wary astonishment,” (200). The naval officer is Churchill, he’s the “god” who acted upon the war and started to end WWII, making him look like a savior to Britain and others.
