Luke showed this when his aunt and uncle died. He remained calm and strong instead of turning to rage. Heroes such as Luke are very smart and when Luke devises a plan to dress up as Storm troopers to sneek past the guards and free the princess. Although Luke displays many great hero traits, he also has a bad one. He acts before he thinks such as when he raced after R2D2 and nearly got himself killed by the Sand People because of
His impulsiveness with Cyclops almost destroyed him and his companions but his bravery and clever strategy were able to save almost all of them. He has bad thinking and qualities even though he is brave man with good qualities. Selfishness, proud, boastful, stubborn, irresponsible, violation, disobedient, strength etc. These are some qualities that I don’t have even though Odysseus possesses them. Through his occurrences with Scylla and Charibdis, the Sirens, and Helios' cattle, Odysseus' heroic character is further disclaiming because through all encounters
Odysseus also hatches an ingenious plan here – first intoxicating the Cyclops with wine so he falls fast asleep, and then blinding him with a sharpened wooden pole. The following describes the moment that Odysseus and his men carry out the plot to blind the Cyclops – ‘Seizing the olive pole, they drove its sharpened end into the Cyclops’ eye, while I used my weight from above to twist it home, like a man boring a ship’s timber with a drill which his mates below him twirl with a strap they hold at either end, so that it spins continuously.’ Also, just before the Cyclops falls asleep, after drinking the wine, he asks Odysseus his name, to which he replies, ‘my name is nobody.’ This is a clever trick and a show of good
For example, in the poem “Ozymandias”, the king/ruler probably became too concerned with his power and he forgot about the prior goals he set. This most likely led to the destruction of his “works”. Macbeth somewhat demonstrates the same qualities as the ruler in the poem. Macbeth becomes too overly concerned with power and he forgets why exactly he is taking these actions. An example of this is his lack of any legitimate reasons for killing King Duncan and obtaining the throne except for his own ambition and greed to become king.
Odysseus understood that if he just wounded the Cyclops, himself and his men might the risk the chance of being stuck in there forever so instead he gets his men inspired to get the Cyclops drunk and hide underneath the bellies of his sheep. Odysseus is also smart when recognizing when and how he should trust his crewmen. He has a well tolerance for listening but learned quickly that his men do not. He also keeps secrets to which he shouldn’t because it would’ve stopped the crew men from opening the bag of wind but the fact that he was capable of keeping everyone alive, proves that Odysseus was intelligent, fair and fearless. He proved himself clever when he gave the Cyclops his name as Nohbdy so when the cyclop screamed “Nobody hurt me!” Odysseus and his men would remain harmless.
Although he did kill a few people in the story, he never really wanted to. When he defeated Bonzo and Stilson, he did it so that he would not just win that fight, he’d win all of the fights that they would ever have. He never meant to kill anyone. When he found out that he killed all the buggers he started crying. The IF lied to him and told him that it was just a game when it was not.
I think that the idea that he does not deserve his reputation is solely for argument, because some people love the feeling of making other people angry. So Alexander made some mistakes and maybe he killed people, just because he had the authority, but no one is perfect and you can’t argue that he does not deserve this title because he made these mistakes. Every human person has made mistakes because no one human has any faults in their history. If you look at other great leaders, they all had a weakness and eventually led to their downfall, but just because they had weaknesses does not mean that they should not be honored for their accomplishments. I think that ‘defaming’ Alexander the Great does not prove the ‘no’ side in any way, because he did many things to help his empire and even though he was the cause of many deaths to the native people of their homelands, he did what he thought was best for his people.
Jason is very strong and even smart, but he is also foolish and ignorant, and he lets his hubris get in the way of his morals. Jason accepts help from Medea in return for marriage. It could be he only accepted to successfully retrieve the Golden Fleece; this shows because after he retrieves it and is about to return to Colchis, he does not want Medea to go with him. Add the event of Jason and Medea killing Absyrtus and throwing his chopped body into the sea and Jason’s want of being king, it is no wonder why Jason ended up with the life he got. After being with Medea for over ten years, his hubris kicks in and decides he wants to marry a princess, thinking he will one day be king when her father dies.
Victor was always mean to Thomas, but Thomas harldy paid any mind to how Victor treated him, he was always there with forgivness for him. Arnold Joseph first appears to be a drunk and abussive man. He is, but what is not first explained is why he is this way. The movie later goes on to tell that Arnold is responsible for the death of two people. Drunk one night, and playing with fireworks, Arnold caused the fire that killed Thomas' parents.
Odysseus may look like a hero although he is not very herolike. In “The Odyssey” Odysseus is perceived to be a hero.He was quite the opposite of what a hero is. He was very arrogant and too proud of himself, he was also really curious and had to find out things that did not matter. When he landed on the island of Polyphemus the cyclops, he very easily could have gotten supplies and escaped with his full crew uninjured. Instead curiousity got to him and he had to
