This scene was also a great scene because Dally’s character finally showed his true colors, and it was illustrated as well as it was in the book, possibly even better. Another scene that Matt Dillion did admirably in was his death scene. He did very well in actually looking like he was about to die; the crawling and the painful expression were very realistic. In conclusion, Dally’s character was represented very well. The film The Outsiders has three main heroes; Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, and Matt Dillon.
To fit with the heightened realism of the play, I would exaggerate the mental pain that the character is going through by associating some lines with physical pain, such as ‘But my mother, and her bed mate Aegisthus, Split open his head with a murderous axe’. I would clutch my head as if it was giving me a migraine causing huge pain. I would also emphasise Electra’s vengefulness by raising my voice and becoming incredibly angry in the lines where she is praying to the gods for help ‘ Help me Hades and Persephone, Hermes of Hell and Lady Curse […] Come, help me avenge the murder of my father’. When Electra says’ ‘ the weight of grief crushes me down’ I would show this physically, by dropping down to the floor as if I had been crushed, as I think it would help to portray how Electra is beginning to break down. I feel that this would help to emphasis the characters desperation to the audience and helps the audience to empathise with the character.
I watched as Grendel’s mother seeked revenge on the great Beowulf. She was biting holes in his helmet, wrestling him, and clawing him. Grendel’s mom seemed to be winning. Beowulf was the greatest warrior, and yet he was stumbling around and was very weary. She pinned him down and pulled out a dagger and tried to stab him but his armor was too thick.
2. What the description implies about Beowulf’s strength is that Beowulf surpasses ordinary warriors in strength. His strength is comparable to that of the giants who forged the sword. 3. What is ironic about the way Beowulf kills Grendel’s mother is that Beowulf kills Grendel’s mother with her own sword.

The Heroic Journey of the Incredible Hercules Hercules was the son of Zeus and Alcmene. He was born hated by the goddess Hera because of Zeus’ relationship with Alcmene. From an early age Hercules got his first taste of near death experinces when two snakes were placed in his cradle but he grabbed both of those snakes with his shockingly strong hands for an infant and killed them. Hercules life proved already to be a dangerous one, but little did he know that his Hero’s Journey was ahead of him. Hercules life was already a champion wrestler, an excellent marksman with a bow and arrow, and having the ability of superhuman strength just added to his heroic charisma.
Most of the women were described in a belligerent personified: Extreme Cruelty, Sword-Time, or simply Killer. Even Blame, the Norn of Necessity is among the Valkyries, was who on occasions the influential figure of bossy. There was a Valkyrie of drunken brawling, Ale-Rune, and another of Taunts. To the Viking mind Battle herself was a woman, as were War, Tumult, Chaos, Devastation and Clash. The female corpses
Gilgamesh and Enkidu decide to fight a terrifying demon named Humbaba, because he was standing on their way to meet gods. The two heroes managed to kill Humbaba. “ Gilgamesh swiftly cut the breast, splattering blood upon his cloak and sandals.” (page 34). On their way they met with Ishtar, the goddess of love, is overcome with lust for Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh rejects her.
His greedy and power hungry wife, Lady Macbeth, assists him in devising plans to kill King Duncan and seize Scotland. The image of blood portrays the central idea and mood of Macbeth, guilt. There is a clear progression of the motif of blood from something brave, honorable and complimentary to something evil, shameful and full of guilt. At the beginning of Shakespeare’s Macbeth blood represents honor. Such as the enemy’s blood on Macbeth's sword after the war shows that he is a brave hero.
Rough "Maria, you have to go with the others!" I yelled out while trying to fight off the Nazis. She stood there and shook her head. From the corner of my eye, I saw more Nazis coming with weapons and saw an arrow targeting her. I made a run towards her the same time one of the Nazi soldiers shot the arrow.
