Rainsford on the other had fell off a boat and landed on Ship Trap Island. Here on Ship Trap Island he was being hunted down by a man by the name of Zaroff. In both their cases they had no one but themselves to help them. Both of the main characters need to rise up and defeat who they are being hunted down by. In High Noon the main character Will Kane is all alone, after he asks many of the people in the town they all ask him to leave.
Furthermore, it can be said, that not only does the chronicles of Ulysses have key stages but also a clear departure to the “special world”. The special world rolled in the story when Ulysses passed the trial against the Cyclops Polyphemus. The other trials Ulysses faces before Polyphemus all are possible trials that could happen to anyone. Polyphemus was something they never faced before, something they probably haven’t thought ever existed. After confronting Polyphemus, almost every other trial Ulysses and his crew have faced are supernatural.
Odysseus and his men travel from Troy back to Ithaca stopping at different islands along the way, running into strange monsters like the cyclops Polyphemus and angering the gods. When he assuredly returns to Ithaca, without his men, he has to fight and defeat the suitors who are trying to marry his wife Penelope. Odysseus’ men had a hard time returning back to their normal way of living when they stopped on the island of Ismarus. When they made it to the island they “...killed the men who fought. Plunder...” and “..enslaved the women…”(Homer lines 43-45).
Zeus with no choice left but to punish Odysseus’s men whips up a storm and strikes his thunder bolt to destroy Odysseus’s ship soon after they leave the island. No one survives but Odysseus. “…his hardy life spirit left his hones behind. Then, then in the same breath Zeus hit the craft with a lightning-bolt and thunder. Round she spun, reeling under the impact…” (Odyssey 12.
Gilgamesh is a tyrant of extraordinary power in need of a male companion equal to him in the first two tablets of his epic, and that is why the gods fasten Enkidu. Enkidu is the polar of opposite of Gilgamesh. Where Gilgamesh “tramples (his) citizens like a wild bull” (Tablet 1 - 28), Enkidu “(eats) grass with gazelles” (1.73), while Gilgamesh “takes the girl from her mother and uses her (1.31), Enkidu “frees the animals” (1.97) from traps set by the trapper. Gilgamesh is a harsh king and Enkidu is a peaceful lover of nature. These two great men needed to be brought together to balance Uruk and the surrounding countryside.
Well, a godlike man by the name Odysseus proves himself to be conceited and arrogant through all of those scenarios. While on his journey home Odysseus sailed his ship to the “place where many sheep and goats were penned at night.”(Pg. 429) This is the island that the Polyphemus the cyclops lives on. Odysseus and some of his crew went to talk to the cyclops but the one eyed giant had other things in mind. He trapped them in his cave and ate two of odysseus 's men.
The men likely would not have held their beach, had Odysseus been a weaker leader. The second time Odysseus’ men interfered with his return home was on the island of the sun god. Though Odysseus cautioned his men against touching Helios’ cattle, his men did not heed his warning. When Odysseus fell asleep, Eurylochus persuaded his companions to eat the cattle, saying, “Come, we’ll cut out the noblest of these cattle for sacrifice to the gods who own the sky: and once at home, in the old country of Ithaca, if ever that day comes- we’ll build a costly temple and adorn it with every beauty for the lord of noon.”(Homer, 884-889) The killing of his cattle angered Helios, and he asked Zeus to punish Odysseus’ men.Zeus complied, striking their ship with a lightning bolt so that everyone but Odysseus drowned. Odysseus had to use his strength and sense to overcome the problems his
When they get back to the boat and Odysseus yells out to the Cyclopes his name. Which means a harder journey for Odysseus and his men because Polyphemus is Poseidon's son.In this book Odysseus shows his pride when he yells from the boat and almist gets him and his men killed. In the movie Odysseus pride is most shown when he blames her situation solely on his men. He acts extremely self centered, self righteous and all important. Odysseus does not show any respect for his men after everything they have been through.
In this particular section, the two most frequent figures are, of course, Odysseus, and Polyphemus; a cyclops. Unfortunately, the meeting of this creature is not very pretty. After scouting the land for everything they needed, all shipmates were ready to leave, when Odysseus objected, "I wished to see the cave man,". By saying this, he lead many shipmen to their demise, making Odysseus arrogant and careless, disregarding the lives of others for his own personal gain. Amidst the chaos that insued, Polyphemus is fooled by our hero through a tedious scheme.
