Beowulf the most courageous warrior and well risk his life to fight monsters to who ever hurts his people. Beowulf was the greatest king ever a king who loyal and never gives up or back down to nothing. Beowulf has much power than his people. Beowulf well fight and go on journeys to find and kill every monster who would go attack on his
But Beowulf is willing to. Not only does he plunge into the terrifying lake but he goes to fight Grendel’s mother alone. All the witnesses are amazed he completed such a task. Thorin demonstrates this similarly in his fight against Azog. Azog is a monstrous, pale orc that murders any foes, including Thorin’s grandfather and father, in his way of conquering others.
The definition of heroism is great bravery. Bravery is what Beowulf displays when he makes the decision to battle the monsters. Beowulf's courage is exposed multiple times during the battles for example, "The dragon burns Beowulf's hall with fiery breath, and the old king sets out to fight him unaided" (Hanning 9). This detail displays that although the dragon is evil and might, Beowulf shows no fear whatsoever when battling them. Beowulf ignores the possibility of there being an adverse outcome during every battle he continues to fight.
Pandora is the story that indicates women as a source of justice in Hesiod’s perspective. Pandora is the mortal female who sent by the god “Zeus” to punish humans. Zeus was anger when seeing people not giving him honor, so he sent a beautiful girl with a jar full of evil, sickness, and death. Once she opened the jar, mortality was disappeared. Through this example, we can conclude that Hesiod illustrates that Pandora herself has strength, a mind, and a voice letting her bring evils for humanity.
“To a monster the norm must seem monstrous, since everyone is normal to himself” (Steinbeck 75). To Cathy the “norm” is evil and everyone has evil tendencies. She sees herself as a vigilante of sorts, helping to show the world the evil people inside it. To her, good does not exist, and when she comes in contact with it she cannot comprehend it. “She lives as an alien who refuses to fit into the conventional code of the good woman” (Noble 16).
The women in this epic are shown as either one extreme or the other with no in between. Either obedient virgins who run from the gods in the fear of getting raped, or vengeful and malicious women who are in the hunt for revenge. A prominent theme in metamorphoses is that these women in fact do not have an in-between state, just one extreme or the other. Ovid also uses this as a great contrast between different female characters in each of his books. This can be seen in the contrast between Io, the water nymph who is taken and raped by Jove against her will, and Juno the vengeful goddess who takes her revenge on Io.
The “Monstrous ogress” was “savage in her grief,” and her actions become even more beastly than her sons (Beowulf 1258-76). Women in this Germanic Warrior society were meek, so the actions of Grendel’s mother greatly contrast with the typical behavior of a woman in this time period. Grendel’s mother’s gruesome actions are beastly in nature, but her emotions of outrage and grief for the murder of her son are human. Once again, Beowulf’s victory of the savage monster shows the overall theme of good winning against evil. The third and final evil Beowulf must face is the dragon.
On the other hand, we see the power of feminine motion on Beowulf when he first encounters Grendel’s mother. She is a mythical monster who feeds on the flesh of humans. She is not given a name but referred to only as “Grendel’s mother”. Like most mothers, she takes on the roles as a nurturer, she must defend the honor of her child. During the Anglo-Saxon period, and even in today’s society, females portrayed as peace keepers because they are not supposed to get involved in any of action that starts some kind of feud.
Even though she is depicted as a murderous monster who worked to destroy her own children through abortion and the revelation of her true identity to Aron, in reality, Cathy solely worked against what she didn’t understand –goodness. This highlights how Cathy also followed the idea of timshel, but she could only follow what she knew –human nature. Not only did Cathy serve as the novel’s main adversary Steinbeck utilizes the evil within her to show how evil could be defeated by goodness. Opposing viewpoints state East of Eden contains underdeveloped, stereotypical female characters argue that Steinbeck categorizes women into two, extreme types: caring mother or heinous villains. However, within the novel, Steinbeck denies his female character’s simplicities by creating multidimensional roles within their womanly archetypes.
Cersei Lannister Cersei Lannister is depicted as a horrible person, one who is ambitious, ruthless, petty and cruel, and is willing to sacrifice anything other than her children to bolster her own power. She is also the only “villain” in the series whose point of view is shown in the novels, whereas the other “villains” are explored in a way that makes them seem more sympathetic and compelling, Cersei’s chapters only confirm the idea that she is an unhinged, vindictive, selfish, and spiteful woman.  Yet Cersei is also one of the most intricate, interesting and detestable characters in the series. One simply needs to dig deeper into her motivations to find the compelling details underneath. Cersei as a character is far from a feminist.
