  • Death Of Socrates Heroic Qualities
    1,244 words
    The concept of heroism is a central theme in Greek mythology. Achilles, the main character in Homer's The Iliad, accurately depicts the concept of a tragic hero. Throughout his many experiences during the Trojan War, he reflects heroic qualities, and earns his name as the purest, the highest and "the best of the Achaians. " Similar to Achilles, Socrates demonstrates several heroic characteristics, in Plato's work The Trial and Death of Socrates. Through his trial, apology and death, Socrates sho...

  • Norton Anthology Of English Literature Anglo Saxon
    1,523 words
    The crucifixion of Christ is treated differently within the bodies of Old English and Middle English literature. The values of each era's society are superimposed on the descriptions of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. Christ is depicted either as the model of the hero, prevalent in Old English literature, or as the embodiment of love and passion, as found in Showings by Julian of Norwich. Old English literature establishes the elements of the heroic code, to which its society ascribed. A m...

  • Code Of Honor Heroic Code
    1,232 words
    Throughout The Iliad, the heroic characters make decisions based on a definite set of principles, which are referred to as the "code of honor. " The heroic code that Homer presents to the reader is an underlying cause for many of the events that take place, but many of the characters have different perceptions of how highly the code should be regarded. Hektor, the greatest of the Trojan warriors, begins the poem as the model of a Homeric hero. His dedication and strict belief in the code of hono...

  • Future King Main Hero
    1,087 words
    A big question that on everyones mind while reading the Iliad is: Who is the real hero of the epic? There are so many possibilities and yet each of those characters has one sort of fault or another. I believe that Hektor is the real hero of the Iliad. He is the one character that stands out, to me, and shows qualities of being noble, wise and a true friend. Unfortunately heroes have their mistakes and downfall.

  • Epic Hero Heroic Code
    490 words
    Often, epic heroes can be characterized the same way. They are portrayed as superhuman beings, possessing strength, physical beauty, and intelligence. These heroes aspired to live by a heroic code that would ensure immortality by keeping their memory alive in the people. Homer's The Iliad shows how the heroic code was ingrained in ancient Greek warriors. In many cases, the Greeks put this code of honor above their own lives. During a battle, Glaukos, a Trojan, and Diomedes, an Achaian, encounter...

    A Comparison of Oedipus and Beowulf The characters Oedipus and Beowulf represent two different types of heroes. Oedipus is a tragic hero and characterized by its standards. He was an influential man of stature who had a tragic flaw. While he contributed to his own downfall, Oedipus was not entirely responsible for it. He also learned a lesson from his mistakes which ultimately creates a catharsis in the reading audience. Beowulf, on the other hand, is characterized by the standards of an epic he...

    Beowulf and the Odyssey: two popular old pieces of literature that are very closely related in some of their themes. In the following paragraphs I am going to attempt to explore each of the books themes, and then show where and how they link together. Structurally, Beowulf is divided into three main parts, each one centering around Beowulf s confrontation with a certain monster: first Grendel, then Grendel s mother, then, fifty years later, the dragon. Each monster functions symbolically as a fo...
