Louie was taken off work duty because his is injured, but begs for a job so he can keep a higher food ration. The Bird forces him to clean up after a pig with his bare hands. Although pushed through this Louie was able to find small victories such as racing civilians which boosted his moral immensely. “He knew what would happen if he won, but the cheering and the accumulation of so many months of humiliation brought something in him to a hard point. He lengthened his stride, seized the lead, and crossed the finish line” (Hillenbrand 216).
Inigo repeatedly repeats to himself, “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya and you killed my father. Prepare to die.” The phrase summarizes Inigo’s thirst for vengeance with Count Rugen. As a child, Inigo respected his father as a person who had created the most wonderful sword for the six-fingered Count Rugen. Out of nowhere, the Count came with the sword to Domingo complaining about the swords condition and refused to pay the entire amount. Due to anger, Count Rugen killed Domingo and devastated Inigo’s life.

What could he do now, if none of the runners he so wanted to impress, laughed at the thought of him trying? As if his thoughts were heard aloud, Ostrich was approached by a fit man, his body yet worn down by living in the savanna. He approached quietly and without warning, yet Ostrich still recognized the man, as he was the sole judge of the running contest. “The contestants make fun of you for your stature and your species, but I see potential,” he stated, demanding Ostrich’s attention, “I have been known to outrun many men and animals a time ago. If you are willing to listen to what I have learned during my time as an athlete, I will help you train for the competitions next year.” More than willing to take any chance he could get, Ostrich agreed to start training with the man that very day.
When Odysseus returns home, he soon finds out that the suitors have been treating his kingdom harshly. As Odysseus enters his kingdom, he is met by Antinous the leading suitor and Antinous treats him with disrespect.“The stool he let fly hit the man's right shoulder on the packed muscle under the shoulder blade-like solid rock, for all the effect one saw” (Fitzgerald 603). Even though Antinous did not know this beggar was Odysseus that went through 10 years in the Trojan War, he still hit him with a wooden stool. He treated Odysseus like trash until the other suitors told him to stop. Odysseus held back his anger toward Antinous when he hit him in the shoulder with a stool to show justice later on.

In the text, Bradbury states, “Forty thousand men, exhausted by nervous expectation. Unable to sleep for romantic dreams of battles un fought, lay crazily askew in their uniforms” ( Bradbury 168). This means the men were scared or had fear from the Battle of Shiloh by saying how they are unable to sleep and having dreams about the battles to come thinking if the still would live through them. The author also states, “More than 23,000 soldiers died during those two days at The Battle of Shiloh, At the time it was the bloodiest battle in American history” (Background 167). This shows the men feared the battle because they could be one more of the men adding into those 23,000 others.
It wasn’t all my fault...The whole team ostracized me the whole way back on the train” (3). Not only is he being isolated from a group of potential friends, but also he is building the expectation of him being the real phony. Also, when he was in the age of thirteen, his parents “were going to have [him] psychoanalyzed and all, because [he] broke all the windows in the garage. [He does not] blame them…[he] slept in the garage the night [Allie, his younger brother] died, and [he] broke all the goddam windows with [his] fist, just for the hell of it” (34). His melodramatic action has demonstrated his internal conflict.
While Beowulf has lived a long, successful life and although he has plenty of men to send off to the fight the dragon, he decides to fight the dragon himself and risk the safety of his people for the chance at one more shot at old times. Despite the narrator’s positive portrayal of him in the earlier parts of the poem, in this scene, readers must weigh Beowulf’s ego against his kingly duty as a protector. His men do not support the unnecessary risk Beowulf takes, and the venture ends in his death. While it is clear that Beowulf’s men betrayed their pledged loyalty to Beowulf by fleeing, Beowulf arguably enacts a similar betrayal in his pursuit of another accomplishment at the expense of the Geats he was supposed to
