They ask Bilbo if he’d be their burglar, Bilbo is completely overwhelmed with it all and faints. Bilbo has no right to be a leader but he has a way with people that makes them happy to follow his lead without question. Hobbits are not affected by dragon sickness as much as dwarves and men. Bilbo is also greatly aided with the magic ring, it allows him to slip in and out of unpleasant situations See(Page.181)
He knows that the ring is going to bring great danger to Shire since his Uncle, Bilbo Baggins had put on the ring. Frodo knows this because Gandalf the Grey told him that whenever someone puts on the ring, the Ringwraiths from Sauron are drawn to the rings power. Frodo shows great determination when he is put in charge of bringing the ring out of Shire and to Bree where Gandalf would take care of it from there. Frodo knows he is not exactly qualified for the job but he also knows that the fate of Middle Earth relies on him. He sacrifices his life to get rid of the ring, even though he knows that he could possibly die from the Ringwraiths.
Gawain starts off the story very eager to lay down his life almost to the point of conceitedness. He also shows that he is honorable by taking his uncle's, King Arthur, place when Splendid challenged King Arthur's Court. Gawain also exhibited courage because there was a chance of death. Splendid the Green Knight thinks King Arthur's men might be phonies so he went to King Arthur’s court to challenge them. Splendid summoned King Arthur's men to cut off Splendid's head with the understanding that Splendid would get the opportunity to match Gawain's swing for swing a year and a day later.
This comes from his father a Baggins. His mother a took. A Took is an adventurous daring hobbit willing to anything. Bilbo “took” the name Baggins after his father. Bilbo is truly a Took because he is able to do things others can't he just needs motivation so that makes him a hero because he doesn't think he acts heroically to save people and he's not selfish.
Educated Stupidity. While Frodo leads the way to Mordor to destroy the ring he makes several poor choices. The choices that are needed to be made are critical to get to Mordor successfully. While Frodo makes the uneducated decisions that you need to make as a leader, Sam, his best friend and gardener, saves him several times by correcting the choices of Frodo. The other archetype comes from Gollum, the outcast, banished for murder which he committed due to selfishness caused by the seduction of the ring.
Murder is unacceptable according to the Bible, but as the epic was written in a time period that pagan views were still present, this idea was accepted. The idea of killing to bring about right was understood based on how important it was for that person to be terminated. Based on the greater good, Beowulf was expected to kill the dragon. In conclusion, Beowulf had a right to kill the dragon, even saying that the dragon was stolen from. When looking at the bigger picture, Wiglaf and Beowulf were heroic in their actions.
Grendel in turn becomes a beast who feeds on humans to survive, and Beowulf remains a hero, but his purpose would only be to show off his strength rather than doing an honourable act for God; Grendel is no longer evil, and is a non-human creature with no morals, ethics, or conscience. The concept of good and evil no longer applies to Beowulf’s epic when there is no longer Christianity
Jason, tasked with the duty of stealing the golden fleece in order to take back his rightful throne, not only has to defeat the fire breathing bronze-hoofed bulls and the army of men who guard it, but also must face the dangers (Talus, harpies, sirens, etc) of simply getting to the island of Colchis where the fleece is kept. Even though the whole quest itself was a near impossible task and death or injury was certain, Jason and his crew still go out on a limb and gather up the courage to face peril, and persevere through all the hardships they encounter. Yet another example of a hero with courage in Greek
Both the men who overthrew Prospero and Caliban have committed crimes which have diminished their moral authority. Only Prospero, the victim, can claim any true power to rule since he has moral superiority. Not even Caliban who is native to the island can claim power over Prospero because, he does not diminish his moral authority by killing anyone and ensures that all of the other characters return home safely. Prospero never unjustly treats anyone poorly. Prospero simply has a vision that he works to have realized through the use magic.
An example is on page 13 is, “I am strong and clever. Let me reason with King Minos. And if he will not end this horrible custom , then I will slay the beast so that no other must die.” This can show people bravery and courage can help us persevere through tough challenges in life. Another example is on page 18, “When we watch Captain America stand up to a corrupt leader, we feel like maybe we can find the courage to stand up to the kid at school bullying our best friend.” This explains that even when times get rough we can find courage and become more
