odysseus’ life is blessed by Zues, all his knowledge abilities are blessing from the gods .Even before Odysseus came to life he was predestined to become an honored charismatic leader who is greeted by his crew with tears of happiness and relief due to the many blessings that were given to him by the gods. The gods give Odysseus Instructions and all the needed weapons to have the ability to beat all the enemies that confront him. He is also given a
Brabantio also admired Othello greatly and this is what prompts him to invite Othello to his home so that he can listen to stories of his adventures in different parts of the world. Desdemona, daughter to senator Brabantio has spurned the advances of eligible young Venetian men, but is captivated by Othello chiefly because of his harsh experiences. We first come
Moreover, Othello’s actions are based on seemingly physical evidence, giving him good reason to act as he does. Indeed, Othello has no reason to distrust Iago, his loyal ensign. Throughout the play, the majority of the characters are deceived by Iago, believing him to be honest and trustworthy. Whilst speaking with Emilia, Desdemona refers to Iago as “an honest fellow” (Shakespeare, 3.3.5). Similarly, after Cassio hears Iago’s advice to seek out Othello and beg for forgiveness, he bids a “good night [to] honest Iago” (Shakespeare, 2.3.313), who is none other than the man that diminishes his reputation and causes him to lose his title.
He is the ruler of the underworld. Hades is powerful compared to all the demigods. He is the killer for the planet and controls death for everyone on planet earth. His Roman name is Pluto they say this because he is such cold hearted god.Hades can trick people with fascination,I say this because he stole the master bolt of Zeus but blames it on Poseidon so he can vanquish. P.s(lying is bad) Poseidon is a thoughtful and trustworthy god.
This is especially apparent when referring to the lives of Odysseus and Telemachus, and how they have been impacted by the gods. In the life of these two prominent figures, they have experienced the pain but also the gift of patronage from various deities. Odysseus on the bad side of Poseidon, also leads to his son to be hurt. But both Telemachus and Odysseus are not only backed by Athena, but other ambrosial beings as well throughout the myths. In the end, it is assumed that from these two character’s experience that there is no definite way a god can impact someone’s
In Virgil’s The Aeneid, Aeneas is cast into the main role as the leader of what’s left of the Trojan people. Many people in his position are presented as heroes like Odysseus and Hercules, accomplishing and doing great deeds, but can Aeneas be considered a hero? Taking into consideration the parts of the Aeneid, book six and book twelve, can give some insight and examples into why Aeneas may just be an indirect hero and a pawn used by the gods. When first reading book four I saw Aeneas in a negative light. They way he left Dido, breaking her heart, to go to Italy after they had been married (in Dido’s eyes) just seemed cruel and uncalled for.
This contradicts Zeus saying the mortals are to blame, because she says that the gods are decide everything, so they are to blame. Even after this, Athena feels like she deserves more credit for Odysseus’ journey home than he gives
For centuries, mortals have scoffed at the actions of the gods, often comparing them to little children arguing over toys. As Honer states, “We men are wretched things.” (Homer) However, what humans fail to realize, is exactly how similar the actions of the immortals are to that of man. The concept that allows readers and audiences to relate to the gods so fully is the fact that they are so similar to humans. The gods engage in violent behavior as often as mortals do, and even more so on a larger scale. As a whole, violence is present throughout The Iliad, contributing to the idea that violence in literature will always make characters inherently more human.
No one was supposed to deter from the will of the gods and if they did, the consequences would be severe. Vergil’s Aeneid offers insight into the mind of a Roman, what they stood for, and how they valued the gods’ insight. Following the will of the gods was a crucial aspect to every Roman citizen. If someone were to stray from the will of the gods, then there was often catastrophic consequences. Similarly, Phlegyas gave a warning to Aeneas while he was in the Underworld.
Hercules is known for being strong and mighty even know most people don't know the actual story. Hercules, as a hero has different quests, dragons, ect. Hercules is a different kind of hero in the movie than in the actual story; in the movie he portrays a seeker while in the book he is more of a worrier. In The Myth of Hercules, the archetype he portrays is a worrier. His main quest is to get forgiveness from the gods.
What was Ovid 's view of the gods ' ethical performance: Ovid 's metamorphoses give us a fair image into the Roman/Greek gods actions. In every lesson about these gods, it constantly proves that the gods are childish, jealous of any worship that is not specific to them, and overall not very god like. In his first story Ovid gives tells us that Cupid was able to shoot Apollo with an arrow that made him fall in love with a nymph, it shows us that these gods do not have a chain of command all the gods run around trying to help certain nations while other gods try and foil their plans. In another story he tells us about a woman named Niobe and how she proclaimed that she should be worshiped instead of the gods because she had fourteen children,
They began at once to leave off their wild and savage habits; … and were glad because life had been given to them.” This myth shows the values of learning, and growth when people are able to evolve from “beasts” into people who can do things such as cook. This all begins with the outspoken opinion of Prometheus, that decides that the people need fire to keep warm. He felt strongly about his opinion, and therefore defended it, even though it involved disobeying Zeus. The power of speech used here has been proved so important, that an entire play was written by Aeschylus to exhibit it. Also, not only were there public plays showcasing these values, but ancient Greek forms of government encouraged the expression of
The fiction book, Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan, is about how victory is not easy to achieve and sometimes you need sacrifices to gain it and reveals that being victorious in a battle is not as easy as it may seem, but you may eventually need to risk and sacrifice or else you can’t win. In the Blood of Olympus many different protagonist’s go through a variety of ordeals. A few of them are that they must face a person vs person problem that is fighting against gods and giants, a person vs fate which is knowing that one of them are going to die, and a person vs society that is Greeks and Romans fighting over which way the gods can be restored. The person vs society is where Greeks and Romans fight each other. One of the groups of protagonists
During Bill Clinton’s presidency, he signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) which federally allowed people to deny other people services based on their religious beliefs. Especially during today, people argue over the topic of denial of services based on religious beliefs, but the Democrats are typically against it, while the Republicans support it. Since the RFRA cannot be used within states, various states have created their own version of this Act which has created various tensions between the different parties. The issue of denying services to a person based on religious beliefs is an unjust excuse to avoid facing modern issues because it is immoral, competes with the goal of self-improvement, and conflicts with the legalization
Later in book four Virgil writes, “With love of her, yet took the course heaven gave him and went back to the fleet” (line 524-526). Having a deep love for Dido and leaving shows the impact the gods had on the Romans who were willing to do what the gods wanted them to. Not only did Romans leave their loved ones they believed in prayer. After Aeneas leaves regarding what his feelings for Dido are Dido says, “ I hope and pray that on some grinding reef midway at sea you’ll drink your punishment(Virgil 506-507).” The remark that Dido makes proves that the Romans believed in prayer to get what they wished. The gods in book four of the epic play an important role in helping Virgil prove how influenced the Romans are by
