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. Odysseus deserves loyalty from his crew because he saves them from life threatening situations like when they were in the cyclops cave and when the crew got turned into swine by
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. Also in the story of Scylla and Charybdis, Odysseus led his men to both of the monsters. Once his men began to get taken Odysseus could hear his men’s struggles, “Voices came down to me in anguish calling my name for the last time.” (936) In this final part of his journey to get home to Ithaca, Odysseus allowed all of his men to die when facing these sea monsters.
He is willing to risk his life that made it possible for him to rescue and guide his friends escaping from the persecution in Waknuk. 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.
An example of recklessness would be suicide attacks. 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.
