She says that the Sirens sing an irresistible song that will sing away the mind of the men who listen to it. Adjective: undaunted. Circe says that next to the Sirens are the dead bodies of those who heard them sing. Circe says to Odysseus that he should plug the ears of his oarsmen with beeswax so they don’t hear the song the Sirens sing. She says that his men should tie him to the mast of the ship if he wants to listen to the Sirens.
In the second episode, another part that shows loyalty is when they are on the ship and the sirens come along. He tells his men to fill their ears with beeswax and honey so they will not be enchanted by their music/song. He was risking himself for his men so he could save his men instead of
Another confrontation Odysseus must best is passing by Scylla. Scylla is a six-headed monster who will take six of Odysseus’s men. If he tries to avoid her, the ship and all the men will fall into the whirlpool created by Charybdis. He comes to the decision that it is better “‘to mourn six men than lose them all, and the ship, too’” (Homer 12. 69-70 ).
Even though Odysseus is a hero he has many strengths. Odysseus went on a voyage with his comrades and in the middle of his travels he encounters the sirens. He is horribly worried about the sirens, so he kindly and calmly lets his crew know about the sirens. As they ease closer to the sirens they are slowly finishing up with gooping beeswax in their ears. After the beeswax is finished his crew hog tied him up so that Odysseus will be able to witness the song of the sirens.
In the ninth book of Homer’s epic, Odysseus lands on the island of the Cyclops on his voyage home from The Trojan War. Upon arrival, Odysseus and his men enter a cave on the island that is filled with provisions. What the men do not know is that this cave is home of Poseidon's son, Polyphemus, who is a giant, man-eating Cyclops. When Polyphemus arrives back at his cave, he blocks the entrance with a giant stone and eats two of the men. The next day four more men are eaten by Polyphemus and Odysseus knows he must do something so that he may make it home to his family in Ithaca.
They address “famous Odysseus – Achaea’s pride and glory.” They know that Odysseus likes to hear and talk about himself and play to that. They do not ask but order him to “moor your ship on our coast.” They try to convince him that landing at their island is inevitable – he may as well do so now and hear their song. The Sirens continue to press, saying that should Odysseus dock his ship, he “can hear our song.” What they have been singing up until this point was only a taste of what Odysseus could hear if he were willing to stay on their island. This feeling that there is more to come is a method of enticement that the Sirens employ in order to sway Odysseus to land on their island. The Sirens, an enemy that knows Odysseus’ every weakness, holds immense sway over him due to his
Scylla a creature who “... is a six-headed monster lurking in an overhanging, fog-concealed cavern. She cannot be defeated in battle, and she will devour at least six of the Greeks, one for each of her hideous heads that feature triple rows of thickset fangs” (www.cliffnotes.com). In order to pass this terrible monster, Odysseus must give up six of his men rather than being swallowed by the whirlpool that Charybdis creates. This is a tough discussion as Odysseus does not want to give up any of his strong fighting men. With endless challenges, “no more than an arrow shot away is Charybdis, a monster whirlpool that swallows everything near it three times a day” (www.cliffnotes.com).

Robert, being unable to swim, starts drowning and screaming for help. He drifts into unconsciousness, to laughter echoing all around him. When he wakes up, he finds himself on board a ship, Captain’s Revenge, with many seamen in eccentric and elaborate costumes. After much effort in trying to communicate with them, he realised with much consternation that he had somehow travelled back in time to 1695. The pirates, having seen him appear in the sea out of a flash of light, saved him out of curiosity.
Courage permits one to face extreme dangers and difficulties without fear, and this is what both Mrs. Dubose and Jem did. The lesson of courage was shown to Jem, and occured when a dangerous situation came along; Courage saved his sister and saved himself. They could have died, but instead he fought against his fear, and this showed that he finally understood what true courage really
