Also, Odysseus deserves loyalty because he saves his men from Circe's palace. Odysseus states, “But I, I drew my sharp sword sheathed at my hip and I rushed her fast as if to run through her- She screamed, slid under my blade, hugged my knees” (10.357-359). This also shows how Odysseus deserves loyalty because he threatens to kill someone so he can get his crew back after they are turned into swine.
Such as in the story of Circe, Odysseus decided to go back to the dangerous land to save his men. “Against Eurylochus’ advice, however, Odysseus rushes to save his men from the enchantress.” (920) This shows that Odysseus chose to risk his own life and more members of his crew’s lives. Although some do say that this was a heroic act, he put his idea above those of his men.
Moreover, he sacrifices his freedom to return back to Waknuk to be with Rachel. Michael is determined to follow and help his friends as they escape, and he shows great heroism by being smart, brave, and selfless. Michael is a hero because he is smart and the most decisive person among the telepathic group. Firstly, in chapter 8, his parents are not satisfied with the education in Waknuk and they have decided to send him to a school in Kentak; there he learns new things that the rest of the group does not.
One theme that Odysseus learned is that people in the real world also learn is that in order to succeed and move forward, you must have courage. Throughout The Odyssey, Odysseus shows courage during his battles and hard times. This courage enables him to work toward his goal of getting back home to his wife. For example, just before stabbing the Cyclops in the eye with his spear, Odysseus “cheered [his] men on with battle talk to keep their courage up: no quitting now” (906). Odysseus learned that, in order to escape from the Cyclops and get back home, he would have to be brave; therefore, he showed this to his men as well.
The two characters show heroism in unrespecting ways. Norman and Odysseus are heroic because they did things that normal people would not do. These books are connected because Norman and Odysseus did something they didn’t have to do but wanted to do. Heroism can be showed by the people you least expect to show it. Also helping others can go a long way.
Superman and Beowulf express different timeless values and universal themes. Timeless values are the values a certain person or hero has. Universal themes transmit the overall message of a story,film or play. The hero and warrior Beowulf shows the timeless value of courage because he defeats Grendel in order to avenge those innocent people killed by the monster, and since Grendel was very strong it would take courage from any hero to confront him. On the other hand, superman shows more the timeless value of honor, because he is looked upon as a god and the majority of humans respect him.
In the story Beowulf, Beowulf portrays himself as someone who illustrates the characteristics of an epic hero. No one wishes to take on the heroic deeds that Beowulf accomplished, which made him someone to look up to. Beowulf’s accomplishments in defeating monsters made him known far and wide, making him the man for the job. A hero like Beowulf would need an exceptional amount of strength and shows this when he rips off Grendel’s entire arm. “He twisted in pain,/And the bleeding sinews deep in his shoulder/Snapped, muscle and bone split/And broke” (Beowulf. 337-339).
It is almost impossible not to feel bewilderment when viewing a suicide attack. Regardless, there are some people who see no other way to get their point across without the senseless killing of not only their self, but of other innocent people as well. The solution, or the “mean” insofar as the two extreme emotions regarding courage, is offered in the behavior of Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King displayed great courage and temperance in his fight for a better life, not only for his family but, for all people who suffered discrimination because of the color of their skin.
Just liked in the movie, The Avengers, superheroes and villains come to fight to save the humanity or hurts it. Heros could bring justice for the people and civilized the whole nation; unlike the villains, they brought seekers to people and lead them to tragedy. Heros, who tried to find villain 's plans in order to get one step ahead of the opponent(s). While villains acted like poker face or joker. Just liked no other battle like the first Battle of Bull Run that related to the movie The Avengers.
He might an ordinary man, but his thoughts and action during the day made him a hero, if not in epic sense, then at least for that day in history. He tries to see good in everyone and is ready to forgive any kind of an insult. He offers guidance to Stephen because he sees mutual benefactions that might be born from their future intellectual conversations. His act of heroism can be found in his attempts to make the world a better place. Upon his arrival home, Ulysses and his son Telemachus killed all the young men that were courting Penelope.
In the book To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus tells Scout that courage is “when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.” Atticus has shown a lot of courage to his kids. Atticus showed courage by accepting the Tom Robinson case, by standing his ground at the jailhouse, and by standing up to Aunt Alexandra about Calpurnia. He even tries to get his kids to follow in his footsteps. What Atticus meant when he told Scout what courage was, was that even if you know that you're going to lose something it doesn't mean you shouldn't try.
In today’s world, many different people from many different backgrounds and countries hold certain values close to their hearts. Though different values are held close to different people, people always have held values close to them. A major value that people around the world hold close is courage. A major reason that people hold courage close is because people who have courage are often looked up to. In today’s world however it seems that many people undervalue courage.
Courage is the ability to face a fear, pain, or a difficult obstacle in life. Many individuals have great qualities, but not many have courage. Having courage can give you the ability to stand up for yourself and others. Another great ability that courage gives you is the ability to express yourself and what you think is wrong or right. Being courageous also makes you fearless which means you’ll accomplish any goals you have set for yourself.
Courage is a virtue that all people have and it can come from the most unlikely places. Being a woman or child in an environment where war is being waged, and to be able to manage in that environment, took an incredible amount of courage. Faulkner uses several situations in his novel “The Unvanquished,” to show how Granny, Bayard, and Ringo must possess the courage to take on roles that they normally would not have if the man-of-the-house would have been on the home-front, instead of fighting Yankees. Every son wants to be like his father. They look up to him, live by his example, and want to win his approval in every situation; or at least that is what it was like back then.
Hysteria Throughout life, many instances arise where courage, strength, and valor are needed to complete the task at hand; whether it be Superman, Batman or the Green Lantern, there are many men that show these traits when the face their enemies. When these men face their own personal challenges, each one goes to battle with many strengths and many weaknesses that threaten their lives. These men, when they are faced with possibly the thing that could potentially kill them in battle; they must choose how they react to the pressure that builds up in their lives. Likewise, Samuel Parris, John Hale, and John Proctor are heroes in the book entitled the Crucible; they must put aside their lives and their integrity to be able to tell the truth despite the morbid circumstances surrounding them. These men, and the way that they were able to cope with the pressure put in front of them, to the point of death, is really what
