So they had to fish and find other animals besides the cattle and sheep. Eurylochus and the men was tired of the fish and other animals,but they should have kept eating it because they would eventually left the island. Odysseus even urged his men to bypass the island, but they wanted to land and eat the cow even though they had food from the sea. However, Eurylochus should have killed the cattle because of the men and him being tired of the other food they ate.
This decision Odysseus made will affect the course of his journey for the worse. The last deaths in Odysseus’ crew was when they were starving. He told his crew not to eat the Sun Gods. Eurylochus had too much pride to die of famine so he said to the crew “... All deaths are hateful to us, moral wretches, but famine is the most pitiful, the worst end a man can come
Odysseus and the crew arrive at the island of Thrinacia and Odysseus strictly states to not eat Helios’s cattle, but as Odysseus go’s off to pray the crew members disobey. They were starving, so Eurylochus second in command “[urges], and his shipmates cheered again /… once they prayed, they slaughtered and skinned the cattle” (12.379-386). Odysseus’s crewmates were strictly warned not to eat the cattle, but starvation and temptation took over leading them to their death. They were all immediately killed by Zues’s scorching lightning bolt, but Odysseus lives and is now detained greatly because he does not have a crew.
When Atticus breaks the grievous news to Scout, Aunt Alexandra and Calpurnia he says that, “Tom was tired of white men’s chances and preferred to take his own” (315). This means that Tom was tired of waiting on the white men, because they had not done anything good for him in his life. Being oblivious to the fact that Atticus could set him free he tries to escape because he does not think Atticus can do it. All in all Tom dies for no reason and represents a mockingbird because of that. Overall, Harper Lee uses characterization in To Kill a Mockingbird to show that the innocent should be protected.
Just as Odysseus warned his crew, “old shipmates our stores are in the ship’s hold, food and drink; the cattle here are not for our provision, or we pay dearly for it (meaning losing his entire crew)” (page 220) after skillfully escaping from the treacherous hands and mouth of Skylla and Kharybdis on the island of Thrinakia, but they decided to listen to Eurylochus instead, who coaxed them by saying, “You’ve gone through everything; listen to what I say. All deaths are hateful to us, mortal wretches, but famine is the most pitiful, the worst end that a man can come to” and to “better open your lungs to a big sea once for all than waste to skin and bones on a lonely island” (page 221). Similarly, I’ve gone through a moment of self-restraint, which turned into a moment of no self-control.
The Arawak population drastically decreased until there was none of the original Arawaks or their descendants left on the island. Columbus was not only cruel to the Indians, but also to his crewmen. He ignored their cries of hunger and sickness and pushed them to work. He hanged the colonists even for petty crimes such as stealing a fruit.
After witnessing Lupito’s death, Lupito still remains within Antonio’s mind wandering like a lost soul not knowing the ending to his death. He still continues to question whether god has helped his spirit or if he is forever lost to wander. “It is the soul of Lupito, they cried in fear, doomed to wander the river at night because the waters washed his soul away!”(Pg. 26) This is the first placement of Antonio’s religious ambivalence. Antonio may think to himself that seeing someone die is a sin, the idea of growing up thinking that the world is perfectly put together and being restricted from reality is a sin, restriction is a sin.
Polyphemus began to eat Odysseus’ men and they were trying to escape and so they stabbed the cyclops in his eye and got away. As they were sailing away the cyclops was throwing boulders at their ship but could not aim because of his eye. Odysseus thinks he is a badass and calls out to the cyclops telling him his name and this is where his mistake was made. Boasting is typically seen as disrespectful to a lot of people, and in return Poseidon, god of the sea, seeks vengeance for is son by setting Odysseus and his men further off course from home. If Odysseus decided to not boast and just get away, then he would have probably been home eight years
Instead, Polyphemus the cyclops eats several of Odysseus’ men. Instead of leaving the island unscathed and with food, Odysseus’ curiosity caused tragic losses that could have been averted. Another instance of lack of self-control, is shown in “Sea Perils and Defeat” when they pass by the island of Thrinacia. Odysseus attempts to persuade his men to simply pass the island and to leave the cat, but it was to no avail.
Odysseus was a strong leader because when he and his men stopped at the island of the Lotus Eaters people there were feeding them an addicting plant that made all of them go back to the plant to find more and not want to go back home. So, Odysseus dragged his men back to the boat and tied his men to the ship so they could go back to the land of Ithaca. for example, this quote proves that he " drove them, all three wailing to the ships tied them down under their rowing benches, and called the rest: all hands aboard; come clear the bench and no one taste the lotus, or lose your hope of home ' '. Here Odysseus that show 's that he was a good leader because he did not give up trying to save his men and not let anybody eat any of the lotus so no one else would lose their hope of going home.
This jinnee was angry and violent he told the fisherman that he was going to kill him but he would get to choose his death. The fisherman begged for his life praising Allah to spare him. the fisherman looked at the jinnee and asked how did you fit in the this little lamp but you are so huge i don 't believe it and the jinnee wanted to prove he wasn’t lying so he got back in the lamp to be thrown back into the
All of the loneliness causes the monster to become unhappy, and because of this a lot of people die. People in the novel don´t understand that he has good intentions. At one point the monster was trying to save a young girl from drowning. ¨ ´ She continued her course along the precipitous river, when suddenly her foot slipped, and she fell into the rapid stream.
(168) Jack’s tribe, overcome by their inner savagery, without thinking kill Simon thinking he’s the beast, this shows that the boys on the island have lost the part of civilization inside them. Piggy 's murder was also unjustified but also done with intent, “Piggy fell forty feet and landed on his back across that square, red rock in the sea. His head open and stuff came out and turned red, piggy’s arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig who had just been killed. ”(201)
The gods then decided to kill Engidu as revenge because they were mad at him (10). Another lesson learnt also is the existence of death in the society. For example, Engidu died and his friend Gilgamesh was afraid that he might die too (11). He ran away across the sea to avoid death, but he later realized that death is inevitable and no one can evade it (11). In the citation part, we also get to know that a young English archaeologist discovered this epic in 1839 beneath the desert sand that belonged to the buildings or a library that was destroyed by an invading army of Medes and Babylonians in 612 B.C at the city of Nineveh (6).
