A hero is a person who is recognized or idealized for his or her outstanding achievements and noble qualities. The deaths of his men are the result of Odysseus’ weaknesses. The possession of the character trait, arrogance, does not help him in escaping, but rather puts him closer to danger. Another trait that ends up killing a number of his men is his lack of leadership skills, or rather the lack of respect and trust from his men. In some parts of this epic poem, Odysseus also displays the characteristic, foolishness, in which that also results in the deaths of a number of his men.
To avoid his men going against him, “Odysseus does not tell his men of Circe’s last prophecy-that he will be the only survivor of their long journey,” (Homer 716-719). Odysseus’s dishonesty admitted that lying can get you to progress to where you want to be. To get his men motivated, Odysseus did not tell his crew that only he will survive the journey. Instead, Odysseus lied by getting their hopes up of returning home, when in the end he knows that they will not make it back. In order to achieve his objective, he did this to avoid losing everything but to obtain the significant help of his men.

Not only had he lost his dear son, but he alone knew that the death of Balder was the first in a series of events that would end in the destruction of the race.” (Rosenberg 219) Even though Balder’s death was the start of the end of the world, the gods did not try to prevent Ragnarok because they knew it was destined to happen. However, In “Indra and the Dragon,” fate and destiny are not important. When Vritra steals the seven rivers, Indra does not accept it as fate. Even though the other gods felt powerless against Vritra, Indra didn’t let that stop him. “The gods gazed upon the earth with sorrow in their hearts, knowing that they were powerless against such a deadly foe as Vitra.
Some of those antipathetic to this argument believe that Romeo is most at fault for the death of the couple because of his impetuous decision to commit suicide.Romeo would have never felt as if he needed to do this if the plan wasn’t set in the first place. Friar Laurence knew there could be major consequences if the plan failed, and this time they proved to be pernicious. “Her body sleeps in Capel 's ' monument,And her immortal part with angels lives”(V.I). Romeo would have never received this misguided information if it wasn’t for Friar’s overall plan, plus his lack of communication. This incorrect information caused Romeo to kill himself.

Despite his way of dealing with reality being unorthodox, his use of his inspiring imagination to fill a void in his life implies that Walter Mitty possess various, bright reasons to be viewed as an idol. Furthermore, Walter Mitty does not receive the enjoyment of relaxing and dreaming all day, to the contrary, he must endure with his wife’s demands, like when, “Remember to get those overshoes while I’m having my hair done.” Most men around Walter Mitty’s age would sit around all day, but he does not act accordingly, instead, he takes care of the tedious tasks his wife expects him to finish. Also, even though Walter Mitty’s spends most of his time primarily following Mrs. Mitty’s orders, we can see that he decides that rather than complaining, he will make the most out of his life by using his
He is scared out of his mind and can’t seem to function very well. My concern is how will Pi go on to survive while still keeping the memories of his loved ones? Pi is reluctant to let go of the idea that his family is not dead. He keeps on thinking that they will come on a ship to rescue him and they will live happily ever after. After several days he does not do anything or move, this frustrates me as he is not doing anything to keep himself alive.
I didn’t want to get my hands dirty for killing Othello, so I devised a plan so that Othello, would go mad. Though, I didn’t expect so many to die, I’m glad they did. The real tragedy is that I wasn’t able to get away with it. I’m not the bad guy in the story, I’m just the guy who had the plan. The real bad guy is Othello, for choosing Cassio as lieutenant and dismissing me.
