As in the story when he escapes from Cyclops cave he showed that he was brave and a great strategist when he poked Cyclops eye with pike of olive, he decided not to kill him because if he killed Cyclops, he would not be able to get out of the cave. This also shows he was wise and cleaver and able to think about the situation before doing anything. At the time when Cyclopes is making the meal of his friend he bravely said “Here is some drinks for you which we carry” (9 ;). These are some qualities which I can say I possess. His impulsiveness with Cyclops almost destroyed him and his companions but his bravery and clever strategy were able to save almost all of them.
Lord Asriel may be strong,and Iorek may be too,but none can compare to how brave and strong Lyra was in this heartwarming tale. The intelligence in this story in the two father figures is quite frequent. They have very prominent talents in the tale of it. The ways of these brains are demonstrated in different ways. One way is that Iorek has many great battle strategies and is smart in the way that he can outsmart people lower and higher than him.
The people get fed up with the treatment and they pray for the gods to make him his match (a zikru). All this so explaned in line 7 of the next passage. (Let them be a match for each other so that Uruk may find peace (line 7 of the 3rd passage). Tablet II This tablet describes the continued evolution of Enkidu character personality from uncivilized to civilized and how he become friends with Gilgamesh but the passages that I believe that expressed great importance in the story would have to be the food and beer which he receives, “eat the food, Enkidu, it is
Cicones-72 men died “Arrayed in battle order, they attacked/ alongside our swift ships; with bonze tip shafts, / both we and they struck hard” Lotus Eaters “Those three who feasted on the honey-sweet, / enticing lotus fruit had had not the least/ desire to bring back word or soon return/ at all: they wanted only to stay there,” Cyclops- 6 men killed “I asked my comrades to cast lots to see/ which men would dare to lift that stake with me/ and grind it into the great Cyclops’ eye” Aeolus “Into that sack he stuffed the howling winds/ of every sort of course: for Aeolus-/ so Zeus had said-was warden of the winds” Laestrygonians-only Odysseus’s
In the story The Odyssey, Odysseus goes through many difficult conflicts, but there are three main ones. They are the lotus eaters, Odysseus’s pride, and Helio’s cattle. Like when Odysseus said “They fell in, soon enough, with lotus eaters, who showed us no will to do harm, only offering the sweet lotus to our friends-but those who ate this honeyed plant, the lotus, never cared to report, nor to return, they longed to stay forever” (897). That’s just saying that whoever eats this plant will end up being addicted to it and just keep on eating it. This affects the journey because a few of Odysseus’s men ate this plant and are now in no state of mind to complete this journey.
While gluttony is a repetitive event in The Odyssey, practically everyone who indulges in the gluttony is ultimately punished for their misdeeds. Henry Fairlie, in his book The Seven Deadly Sins Today, supports that “gluttony is a grievous sin if it induces us to find all our contentment in gratifying of our appetites” (Fairlie, 171). When Odysseus and his comrades reach land of lotus-eaters, they feast on lotus plants and forget about their homeland (IX: 94-97). It looks like the sweet and pungent smell of lotus might have caused comrades’ wisdom to fade out, and greedily involve in gluttonous activity. This giving in of the temptation to feast by Odysseus’ comrades causes their morale to degrade and make them incompetent to succeed through the challenges of their journey back to Ithaca.
ED’s Poem 82 also has a clear example of physical sacrifice. The poem is about a narrator who, in a sense, is physically starving themselves. They are tempted by the food that is nearby, like “the curious wine” and “ample bread” that is on the table. This physical struggle is described as the narrator is “trembling” while examing the wine. Also this hunger sacrifice is made harder because the narrator had “often shared” food with “the birds”.
On multiple occasions “The men do not take Odysseus’s advice” (Bloom 20) and must suffer the consequences of their action. The men successfully sack the Ciconians city on the island of Ismaros. Odysseus tries to help out his men, giving them insightful advice, but they choose to ignore it and some of the men lose their lives. While exploring the Lotus-Eaters Island, Odysseus’s men become entranced by the honey-sweet fruit and “[he] must forcibly remove them from the balmy island” (Bloom 20) in order to save them. They almost give in completely to their desires until Odysseus, who restrains himself, rescues them.
Despite it's importance, the sailor men and the Mariner continue to "slay the bird" with the last four lines of repetition being, "Then all averred". Not only is parallelism portrayed, but it conveys the ignorance of man in that we have became exclusively concerned about ourselves and disregard the creations God and nature brought forth. In addition, the albatross becomes the defining symbol of the Mariner's big mistake. As a symbol of the burden of sin, it is compared explicitly to the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified. The Mariner now realizes the trouble he has brought upon himself, yet his incapability to speak does not give him the chance to pray out loud.
But he's remains stubborn in his quest. Untapishtam is no more encouraging than Siduri; he lectures Gilgamesh on impermanence, ending with, “the sleeping and the dead, how alike they are, they are like a painted death.” How fitting that he then challenges Gilgamesh to resist sleep for six nights? Had Gilgamesh succeeded, he would have gained immortality. But he fell asleep. Utnapishtam gives the stubborn king a second chance – he told him of an herb at the bottom of the sea.
