HU 233 B The Concept of a Hero S. Jones

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries the hero was a given expression of the individual talents, superhuman abilities, and imagination. The hero as well shows bravery for the action they believe in that society does not agree. Early in the nineteenth century, there was a French man who showed his army the great power of his imagination to winning victories in the battlefield. This man was Napoleon Bonaparte and he gained a great power from the battles he won. In his diary he stated imagination rules the world Gros showed Napoleon is viewed in such glorification by healing victims he touched during a plague. In the middle century, society did determined what is a woman place and what is right for woman. Ibsen’s tells the story of woman leaving her husband who doesn’t value her as person, but rather as a doll in which she must stand up for herself and willing to face the social stigma. While Eakins depicted the prejudice that a female doctor should not work as a surgeon due to the opinions of men stating she can’t do a man job, but that doesn’t stop her from getting the job done proving that there is no limits to her expectations she is going to become a surgeon and no one is going to stop her. In the late twentieth century, De Beauvoir describes women as a lower class or other meaning women are nothing but a object in society and women must be brave and heroic to be challenge the standards and be perceived as equals, as well as contrast to Kruger’s who shows the world that the female body is a combat battle that women both struggle what is right or wrong to their bodies and how should it be suitable for men, as she tells the world women are being categorize in a male point of view she is facing the people to look at her poster seeing that there is women who is looking directly at you not ashamed of flaws but rather letting the world she cannot be perfect in this imperfect world. Heroic throughout the same gives the redeeming qualities facing adversity, bravery, and never giving up. Napoleon Diary had the Romantic attitude of a hero (Fiero, Vol. 5, 29). According to Gloria Fiero, he holds the Romantic hero personality that consist of personal power, self-conscious individualism, and high regards of living with imagination.

The man had great power and in his diary he explained how he received glory by having great imagination. Thinking big was the general idea for Napoleon. He used this concept to get welled recognized from men who never met him. Eventually everyone was in awed of his presence, for such a man to have so much power and success in the world. Napoleon states modern intuition don’t speak about the use of imagination with it a man can be governed without it he is nothing but a brute. (Fiero, Vol. 5, 31). He feels that imagination makes a man knowledgeable and so fierce to think big or out of the box where someone can respect that, but lacking of it would make you look like a dumb crazed animal that needs to be put to death. In his third paragraph, he states that if he could had won the last battle of Waterloo led by English Duke of Wellington he would have died with the reputation of the greatest man that ever existed, but none the less the man was the most powerful monarch in the world. Gros also feels that because of Napoleon’s imagination it leads to show having compassion for others and courage before the plague. In his painting Napoleon Visiting the Plague Victims at Jaffa, all the Palestine people are sick due to a spread of a plague. The plagued victims are half naked.
