The Pride Of King Odysseus In Homer's Odyssey

Satisfactory Essays
This movie is about adventure from the difference places; braveries, romance and pride of king Odysseus. I see that the movie was indeed in culture and interesting action to fights the problems that he gives from goddess. I can say that Odysseus is a very strong man because even though there are lots of straggled that came’s his life. He is still strong and able to face off it. Odysseus fights against the Trojan he guiding by Athena one of the goddesses. Odysseus didn’t care about anything she said because he said belonged at her home with his wife and he went through many battles to win on his journey to back home.
For me as a student It really help us because I think that we can understand the Odyssey

    Odysseus, in The Odyssey by Homer, and I both demonstrate determination in many different ways. The first example is when they stopped at the land of the Lotus Eaters. The men that ate the lotus wanted to stay on the land because they were addicted to the lotus, but Odysseus, the great leader, would never let that happen. He said, “I drove them, all three wailing, to the ships, tied them down under their rowing benches” and told the rest not to eat the Lotus or they would lose their wishes of wanting to return home (898). This shows Odysseus’s committed and driven state of mind in the way that he would not leave any man behind, and he knew he needed to help them up on the ship and return them home safely. In addition, Circe warned Odysseus…

    On the subject of heroism, Maya Angelou once wrote that “I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people” (Angelou). The general picture that comes to mind when the word “hero” is said is the idea of Superman or Wonder Woman; however, a true hero is anyone who tries to make their world a better place. Odysseus, the hero in Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, fought in the Trojan War and embarked on a ten year journey to return to his kingdom, Ithaca. During his quest to return home, he encounters many supernatural forces that show both his heroic, and not so heroic actions. He faces countless challenges, meets new people, and has to make sacrifices for the overall benefit of his crew (Bowler and Homer 645-705).…

    On his way home, Odysseus faces a plethora of challenges that extend his voyages. One such example that stands out is his ordeal in a cave with a vicious Cyclops. During this short but life-threatening period, Odysseus and his crew find themselves trapped in the cave with the beast, who had already “lunged out with his hands toward my men and snatching two at once, rapping them on the ground / he knocked them dead like pups - / their brains gushed out all over, soaked the floor - / and ripping them limb from limb to fix his meal / he bolted them down like a mountain - lion, left no scrap” (Homer 9 324-329). Homer creates a vivid image in the reader’s mind, using words like “limb to limb” and “dead like pups” to form an unsavory situation. The…

    Odysseus was a very faithful, courageous, brave, and a intelligent man. He was not very admirable though. For example, when Odysseus is "stuck between Charybdis and Scylla," he chooses not to tell his men about the nearing danger because he knew they would become alarmed and would put the entire crew and the ship in danger; instead, he said nothing, hid himself below, and allowed 6 men to be eaten! These next few paragraphs are going to explain situations in the epic that reveal some of these traits.…
