Caesar was given a crown three times and the people wanted him to have it, but all three times he rejected it to look good in front of the people. Brutus never wants a dictator for the republic because his father worked hard to keep Rome a republic: “My ancestors did from the streets of Rome the Tarquin drive when he was called a king” (Shakespeare 56-57). Cassius’ father was a noble man and when someone tried to put himself as a king, the fathers of Cassius and Brutus ended up killing him. Cassius wanted to do the same ‘heroic’ deed as his father in killing Caesar. Because of the uprising led by Brutus’ father, Cassius and Brutus conspire to do the same thing.

Finally when Enkidu dies, Gilgamesh goes into mourning and this can definitely be seen when he goes on his adventure alone When comparing the two characters, there a just a few similar characteristics between them.
Later, Menelaus makes sure to do the same, for as he says to the lord Eteoneus, “just think of all the hospitality we enjoyed at the hands of other men before we made it home” (Homer, The Odyssey, Book 4, Lines 38-39). Furthermore, the Greeks believed that it would anger the Gods if they weren’t hospitable to strangers (Homer, The Odyssey, Book 9, Lines 300-305).

When he arrives on shore, he directs his attention to Eumaeus. Eumaeus informs Telemachus that he has a guest waiting for his arrival. The guest happens to be Odysseus, but disguised.

When fate and the Gods are on your side, your chance of overcoming all trials greatly increase. Odysseus very much desired to see his wife and son, but it was his fate to make it home to Ithaca, and with the help of a few gods, his fortune was upheld. “But then, when the happy gods bring on the long hard times, Bear them he must, against his will, and steel his heart. Our lives, our mood and mind as we pass across the earth, turn as the days turn . .
When Odysseus and his men are trapped inside Cyclopes’ cave, the great hero explains, “…here we stand, beholden for your help, or any gifts you give- as custom is to honor strangers….have a care for the gods’ courtesy”(Homer 153). Despite this plea, Polyphemus roars, “… we have more force by far. I would not let you go for fear of Zeus” (Homer 153). In this way, foolish Polyphemus breaks the hospitality code and threatens his guests instead of honoring them. Later, he is punished for this when Odysseus makes him blind.
Telemachus said “I cannot see myself again taking a quiet dinner in this company” (Homer II 326).
