Odysseus is also clever when he planned out a way to pass through the island of siren, which had a monsters that sang and lured sailors to jump off the ship and swim straight to the monster and it would eat them: “Take me and bind me to the half way up the mast; bind me as I stand upright, with a bond so fast that I cannot possibly break away…If I beg and pray to set me free, then bind me more tightly still.’’(XII. 60-67) Here we see Odysseus cleaver plan being presented to his crew man and where we find out later that it works, because the story continues on and that he gets home later. Odysseus was also able to show his bravery throughout the poem many times. We can find that Odysseus’ bravery is tested when he visits Hades, who ruled the kingdom of the dead. When he arrives there, he takes out the cup of blood for the prophet, which attracts all of the dead souls: "This entire crowd gathered about the pit from every side, with a dreadful great noise, which made me pale with fear."
It begins with a challenge for the hero, then an adventure for him, followed by a trip into some form of underworld, and ending with the dramatic and heroic death of the hero. Beowulf follows these guidelines perfectly. The story begins with a call for a hero to kill the pestly beast Grendel, which Beowulf responds to and executes perfectly. Then for the trip into the underworld, Beowulf swims to the bottom of the bottomless pit to face Grendel’s mother, the Troll-Wife. He kills the Troll-Wife, and is called to another problem: He must slay a dragon that seeks to kill the stealer of one of his treasures.

He was just one of the others. On his journey to get home he meets two strange obstacles, Scylla and Charybdis. Scylla is a giant sea monster on the right side and Charybdis is a huge whirlpool on the left. Here he says, “'Is there no way,' said I, 'of escaping Charybdis, and at the same time keeping Scylla off when she is trying to harm my men?” (line 1114-1115) Odysseus is stuck in the middle but then decides to be a brave soul and kill Scylla but in the process he jumped to a branch and held himself there until his stuff came back up from Charybdis. Here we find that not all our heroes will do something heroic.
Odysseus was the first one to realize that if they had killed the Cyclops they would be trapped in the cave forever. “If we kill him now, we may be trapped inside this cave forever.” (Homer 7) Odysseus knows that actions always have positives and negatives, so he thought of the harm that would create if he killed the Cyclops so he waited. As Odysseus’s intelligence grows his knowledge of speech grows too. When the Cyclops, Polyphemus, asks Odysseus his name, he replied in a very sneaky, intelligent way. “Nobody, that is the name my father gave me: Nobody.” (Homer 8) Odysseus was able to
When Peruses arrives in Larissa, he participates in some funeral games and accidentally strikes Acrisius on the head with a discus, killing him and fulfilling the prophecy.”(In the book pg154).

After Peruses sets out to get medusa as a prize no other human being has in the original myth, and to kill the Kraken in the movie.
This demonstrates cunningness, Odysseus is planning to get the Cyclops in order save his and the rest of his men from being eaten by the Cyclops. When Odysseus and his men are getting attacked out at sea Odysseus states, “I tied them silently together, twining cords of willow from the ogre’s bed; then slung
The motion picture Beowulf directed by Robert Zemeckis has some significant alterations in plot events compared to the epic poem. The film does an excellent job showing the terror that Grendel imposes on the Danes with his monstrous raids on Herot.
