Adversity in the odyssey

odyssey beasts

In the Greek civilization, thousands of years ago, many children were taught through these fun and interesting stories. You can compare yourself to others all you want; you can compare your struggles to the struggles of others all you want, but you will always come out of that comparison wondering why you even feel bad about your life because, the truth is, there will always be someone out there who has it worse off than you or maybe better off than you.

Odysseus king of Ithaca set sail with his crew to fight at Troy, but Odysseus and his crew run into some problems returning to Ithaca. It has been eleven months since I was diagnosed with a chronic disease — something I must live with for the rest of my life — which is not exactly something that people are accepting or understanding towards.

The story begins in the middle of the story, as many of the oral Greek traditions did, with the Journey of Telemachus to find his father Odysseus is an appropriate ruler for Ithaca by virtue of his hereditary right to kingship as well as his diplomatic skills, familiarity with his male subjects, discipline, and his impartiality and compassion One of Odysseus's biggest challenges was to resist temptation.

One is a hero if he or she shows leadership, bravery, resilience, and creativity throughout their actions. First, Odysseus shows bravery in many ways throughout The Odyssey. The first people that read The Odyssey, and the countless individuals that have poured over it in modern days can benefit from reading this inexhaustible epic because it delves into fascinating truths abo But, regardless, the challenges are your children.

Odysseus's greatest learning experiences were in his journey, not his destination.

This shows that Odysseus is very brave and through his travels understands that his bravery is earned not given. Granting the fact that humans having similar qualities is a frequent occurrence, no two individuals attain identical personalities. The truth is, I used to be very afraid of you. Although the ending of the Odyssey may be seen as very gory and disgusting, it must be viewed with the time in which it was written, in mind. He does not act irrationally but contemplates his actions and their implications. He shows bravery when he is with allies and friends, which is much easier to do than when one is by themselves. Although the ending is very grotesque it is also a very happy. I think that all this will be remembered some day too. The gods pity Odysseus and assist in his safe return to Ithaca. Centuries later, as depicted in her diary, I Want to Live, Nina Luguvskaya could also be regarded as a hero due to her bold deeds for society and dedication to her cause. Homer cannot be proven the author of this book because there is no proof he ever existed.
