Throughout history there have been many heroes with amazing powers, which have defined them as a hero. Some have had supernatural powers while others have had amazing gismos and gadgets. But, what did the hero in the odyssey Ulysses have? In this essay I will be describing three major traits, which makes him a hero. They are his natural leadership, his strength, and the supernatural help he received. First, Ulysses was a natural leader. For example, he was captain of many ships. This shows that he is a natural leader because no ordinary man can be a captain. It takes a lot of leadership and skill. This also shows that, he is quick thinking which is a required trait of any leader. Another example is when he goes to make sure the area safe when he finds the castle. This shows that he is willing to risk his life for his man, which any leader must be willing to do. This also shows that he is very courageous, because no man who is not a leader would ever go off on there own to make sure the path is clear. Obviously Ulysses is a natural leader. Next, not only is Ulysses a great leader, but he is also very strong. For example, he strings his bow when no one else could. This shows that he is strong because out of all the men who tried he was the only one who could pull it, proving his strength. This also shows that he has very strong will power. Because even though he did string his bow it must have been no easy task since everyone else had a hard time, so it took a lot of will power to string it. Another example is when he breaks the mast on his ship when he is sailing past the sirens. This shows that his strength cannot even be contained when he is tightly tied to a mast with ropes. This also shows that strong because it took two of his men to tie him back to the mast, which means not one man can contain him. Third, Ulysses receives help from a multitude of supernatural beings.

The Satyricon, like many other works written in the time of early Ancient Rome, is a narrative whose author is not known definitively. However, the best candidate from the time was Titus Petronius (Arbiter).The story, looking especially from the scene “Dinner with Trimalchio,” is a satiric masterwork of the pragmatic and materialistic attitude of the time, soon to be replaced by Christianity. “Dinner with Trimalchio” tells a tale from the perspective of Encolpius, a vagabond student of the master…
He loves and is caring and loyal: at one point jumping in amongst a gathering of KKK extremists in order to rescue Tommy Johnson. He is perseverant and strives for excellence. Each of Everett's character traits are qualities we all strive for. In stark contrast we see the simple-minded Delmar, the ill-tempered Pete and the greedy Big Dan Teage. Also there are the deceptive Sirens, and the power hungry Pappy O'Daniel. In encountering each of these personalities…
The Metamorphoses: Why Jupiter’s feelings that humans are evil is misled and hypocritical.
“And I reckon them that are good must suffer for it the same as them that are bad.”― William Faulkner. Faulkner’s ideology is prevalent in the story The Metamorphoses, by Ovid, as the poet tells of the god Jupiter destroying all man kind (except for Deucalion and Pyrrha) because of the actions of one, Lycaon. Ovid describes Jupiter's destruction as an effort to protect all the gods who do not…

In Memoriam…of a Legend
“Tis’ better to have loved and lost/Than to have never loved at all.” The saying created by a widely known and famous poet has permeated generations. Alfred Tennyson has been acknowledged as one with poetic talent at a young age and later would become renowned for his work that ambiguously pushed the questions on faith, the inner workings of nature and mankind, and also the trials of humans throughout the globe…
books’; and on most occasions calls learning to his assistance. The garden of Eden brings to his mind the vale of Enna, where Proserpine was gathering flowers. Satan makes his way through fighting elements, like Argo between the Cyanean rocks, or Ulysses between the two Sicilian whirlpools, when he shunned Charybdis ‘on the larboard.’ The mythological allusions have been justly censured, as not being always used with notice of their vanity; but they contribute variety to the narration, and produce…
