About halfway through Aron's hike, Aron knocked a giant rock loose.
In the novel, “Red Badge of Courage”, Henry first begins as an immature, prideful, and vain boy. He is often suggested as “The youth”, if the novel.

As Henry battles through conflict and trials, choices and consequences, we find him at the end, a young, matured man.

Even though the Trojan War sets itself up as a very controversial topic to many people, there is one positive aspect to this topic. The Trojan War contributed specific evidence to our generation on how greeks fought or may have fought battles through the Illiad. One could classify homeric warfare used by the greeks with simple weaponry, specific tactics in practice and use of humanistic ideologies. First, an important topic of warfare to address is the types of simple weaponry used. The weaponry that caught my attention first was the use of shields.
Athena is known as the goddess of war. Odysseus was aided by her ideas on how to regain power through her tactical skills. The fact that the goddess warrior was on his side through the journey home, reclaiming his land, and killing the suitors was a huge advantage. Athena is very intelligent in how she strategizes and won wars in the past. Some may argue that Odysseus is the real hero but there were many times throughout The Odyssey where he needed Athena’s protection and input of logical ideas.
Although this may be the case, evidence from Troy VI and VII have indicated other possible reasons for the 10 year long siege of the Mycenaeans. Theories such as Chris Mee’s that suggest fishing rights were the cause for the attack or Michael Wood’s that it may have been troubles at home that spurred the Mycenaean’s attack have been presented. Another interesting idea is Bloedow’s, who believes that the access to the Black Sea was why the Greeks attacked. Thus the question is put forth, was Helen of Troy the sole reason for the Trojan War, or would the notorious war still have happened if she hadn’t been kidnapped? From the evidence presented in this paper, I believe that if the Trojan War happened, the kidnapping of Helen of Troy was a catalyst for a war that was bound to happen
During the Trojan War, Ares backed the Trojans while Athena (Goddess of War) supported the Greeks. She easily defeated him by angering him with insults and knocking him down with a huge stone(Nardo,Don. Ancient Greece. Detroit). in another legend, Ares severely wounded with whom he fought in defense of his own son, Cycnus.
Zeus protects the immortal and mortal world, in terms of laws, order and life in general. The Greeks saw Zeus as the supreme ruler of gods and of men. I believe that the Greeks truly worshiped the gods and felt that they were perfect immortal beings. To the Greeks, the gods did no wrong as holy figures, therefore, Zeus’s actions were justified as acceptable. As mortals, Greeks were most likely afraid to question anything the gods did, and specifically not Zeus.
The war was between the city of Troy and the greeks. I get bored sometimes after eating ambrosia, drinking nectar, and listening to Pan’s lyre. So I joined the battle even after my brother,Zeus, warned me not to do so, I was, of course with the Greeks. Hera agreed to trick my brother by distracting him and I went of to war. I was of great usefulness to the greeks because well I am a god
Zeus was as cruel as God, and they invariably thought of themselves, and considered their life insignificant. In the bible, God punished people who didn’t believed in him, even took their life. In the Greek myths, Zeus also took lives of neighbors of Philemon and Baucis, because he thought they who dwelt in the valley wicked and deserved penalty. The strong power .doesn’t mean they can hurt others, which makes think of officers.
Although today, the name of some warriors are used when we refer to some-things but that is not enough to prove the existence of this battle and it should be suggested that the battle between the Greeks and the Trojans should be moved to the realm of myth and poetry until there is more evidence
During the time of chaos of the Trojan War, there were many good and bad. Among these many characters and their actions are the reputations as either a hero, a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or abilities to lead their peers into victory, or a villain. On the other hand, they can also be seen as a villain, someone whose evil actions or motives are important to the plot. The King of Mycenae, Agamemnon, can best be described as a hero. He was a great warrior as well as a great and worthy leader of the men in the Greek army in the Trojan War of Homer’s
The Trojan War begins in vengeance and vanity. It all starts when Paris the prince of a foreign land steals the bride of a king named Menelaus. To see why Paris choose to steal the bride of king which the act of doing so caused one of the greatest wars in history we have to look back a few years. Back first to the celebration of two nobles getting married.
Symbols are common in Ancient Greek literature. Symbolic uses of punishment, symbolic roles of gods, and color are usual to see in Ancient Greek literature. Symbolic uses of punishment are exile, death or blind. For example, in Oedipus the King, because of incest, Oedipus claimed his own punishment. He blinded himself first, and exiled from Thebes forever.
