A hero is someone who will risk his life to protect others. A hero is brave, courageous and strong. Yet a hero also has weaknesses. Odysseus is a hero that has to leave his family to fight in the Trojan War, he has a clever idea and with the help of a god, the war ended. However, he insults Poseidon because he didn’t say thanks to him.
Taking on this battle showed the first glimpse of his heroic nature, which describes the unconventional thinking the godly man applied in the midst of danger. Unlike any other hero in that particular time period, Odysseus was an intellectual man rather than a fiercely strong one. He thought before he acted and that is believed to have been his greatest attribute in successfully returning
He overcame bullying, Mr.Turner, and even his own Father. The second hero in October sky is John Hickam. John's most important traits are being Dedicated, having the power to save others, and being brave. In terms of being dedicated Mr.Hickam was in love with the mine. It was his life and he cared for it very dearly.
The next Tim he woke up he was on the shore of Ithaca, but he didn't know where he was at first until he saw somebody he knew. Athena had helped disguise himself as an old bigger so nobody recognize him. Odysseus is a good leader because he is brave, trusting people with secrets and coming up with risky plans. Odysseus is a good leader because he has a lot of motivation. There are many different things that he and his men are very motivational about everything throughout their very long journey.
Odysseus shows how intelligent he is, by outsmarting monsters, and tricking people. In general Odysseus is a hero because he displays epic hero qualities (traits) throughout Homer’s epic, the Odyssey. Odysseus shows a great deal of bravery throughout Homer’s epic. Odysseus is courageous when facing Polyphemous. Odysseus and his men blind Polyphem-ous, to get out of his cave that he has captured him and his men in.
In book nine we see initial success when Odyssues reaches the island of Ismarus , home of the Cicones, where they attack and gain a “vast plunder” , this initial success reiterates Odysseus’s success at Troy and his , as well as his men’s, fighting capabilities and power. Unfortunately this success is hugely overshadowed when Odysseus told his men they have to “escape with all possible speed” as to uphold their victory and not to be met with opposition in its presence, but his “fools of men refused”: this initially place the blame on the men but this in itself, as Odysseus is saying it, shows a lack of good leadership on his part, as he himself is unable to make the men follow his orders, and so the blame for his own downfall is shifted onto others, leading to the Cicones gaining re-enforcements and so six of his “ strong greaved comrades from each ship were killed” due to this lack of leadership . This in itself does not show Odysseus’s foolishness directly but it reveals a more vulnerable corrupt side to him,
Odysseus had no need to yell at the blinded Cyclops; he had already escaped from the Cyclops’s harm. Odysseus just felt so proud of his victory over the Cyclops, that he wanted the Cyclops to know who was responsible for his injury. This caused Odysseus lots of trouble all throughout the rest of his journey. Poseidon’s anger toward Odysseus greatly sets back his journey because Poseidon controlled all the seas that Odysseus sailed upon. Odysseus is so eager to get home to his kingdom and his family, but he makes mistakes along the way.
A hero is somebody who cares about others and fights for what they believe in with confidence. In “The Odyssey” by Homer, a king named Odysseus ventures out from his home Ithaka to travel the seas. He has a long and hard journey trying to make his way home. Although debatable, Odysseus can be considered a true hero because he is brave, clever, and loyal. Odysseus is a brave hero who shows no mercy to his enemies.
Odysseus In Greek mythology, there are numerous heroes; loyal ones, brave ones and cunning ones, to name a few. Perhaps the most eminent and true example of a hero is Odysseus. His unique personality has proven to be the exact reason why he is regarded as a hero. Odysseus understands the best options for his colleagues. When some of the men from his crew were tempted to forever remain with the Lotus Eaters, Odysseus forces them to return to the ship.
My opinion is supported by Odysseus’ actions, his qualities, and the decisions he makes. Some of Odysseus’ actions were heroic, while others were not. First, Odysseus blinded the cyclops Polyphemus. This action was to save his men from being eaten or brutally murdered. Also, he forced Circe to restore his men to their original form.
