In Odyssey, both God and human disguise their true identity to help themselves achieve their goals. Odysseus is described as a man of twist and turn, quick, clever and calculating. He is a natural master of disguise. The epic often reaches climaxes with his deception. For example, in his returning adventure, Odysseus withholds his true identity from the Cyclopes by using the name “Nobody”. In this point, the disguise enables him to save himself and his crews’ lives. But as he revealing his true

In the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Simon represents a Christ figure with great spirituality. Along with several others, Simon appeared on an island because the plane he was on got attacked and shot down.

Connor Kissler A Tourist in Disguise “¿Estás vivo?” Questioned the old Spanish man sitting next to me. He was wondering if I was still alive after I took sleeping pills to survive an all day flight from Denver to Madrid, Spain. I looked to my left and gave him a quick nod and then exited the plane looking like a zombie. From the second I stepped into the airport I could already sense a difference from home. I sensed a difference in the way everything smelled, looked, and above all, sounded.
I think both disguise and deception are a very important theme throughout the Odyssey. This theme is seen a lot during the story and it truly helps Odysseus on his journey and without it; he might not have made it home to Ithaca. Homer explains that his story is about a “man of twists and turns”. Odysseus is a natural master of disguise, and the plot of the Odyssey often turns on his deception and withholding his true identity. Each disguise in the Odyssey has its own individual purpose, for example

Kent and Edgar are the two characters in this play that disguise themselves as someone else to complete their goals. Edgar is a simple man. He is the legitimate son of Gloucester fighting his illegitimate brother, Edmund, for their father’s position in power. Both brothers knew that they were destined to fight
An Angel in Disguise By Timothy Shay Arthur Idleness, vice, and alcohol had done their miserable work — and the dead mother lay cold and still amid her wretched children. She had fallen upon the threshold of her own door in a drunken fit, and died in the presence of her frightened little ones. Death touches the spring of our common humanity. This woman had been despised, scoffed at, and angrily denounced by nearly every man, woman, and child in the village; but now, as the fact of her death was
