  • A Few Greek Gods - 1,919 words
    A Few Greek Gods subject = History 9th grade title = A Few Greek Gods The Ancient Greeks believed in a series of myths which explained nature, set up a moral code for the people, and were just folk lore of the people. In this paper, the beginnings of myths, the Greek gods themselves, and several myths concerning morals, nature, and old lore of the Ancients will be discussed. Because the myths and details about the gods were passed along by word of mouth, some myths or gods might be interchanged or different. The Greek myths started as folk lore until it began to explain nature and storytellers integrated a moral code into the myths. Many myths started out as fairy tales. As new and more effi ...

  • George Berkley: His View Of God - 1,262 words
    George Berkley: His View Of God George Berkeley: His View of God As man progressed through the various stages of evolution, it is assumed that at a certain point he began to ponder the world around him. Of course, these first attempts fell short of being scholarly, probably consisting of a few grunts and snorts at best. As time passed on, though, these ideas persisted and were eventually tackled by the more intellectual, so-called philosophers. Thus, excavation of the external world began. As the authoritarinism of the ancients gave way to the more liberal views of the modernists, two main positions concerning epistemology and the nature of the world arose. The first view was exemplified by ...

  • Greek Gods Vs Godresponse Paper - 729 words
    Greek Gods Vs. God--Response Paper Response Paper Many of the stories written by Greek authors fill the mind with questions that parallel those asked by Christian minds throughout the world. Does God or the Greek gods predestine what will happen in a person's life? Many Christians in the world believe that this is the case and it is obvious that the ancient Greeks had these types of beliefs. The idea that the Christian God has it in for a person is flawed. The idea that separate gods get angry with different people and then try to get back at them for however they were wrongs is anti-Christian and draws the line between God and the Greek gods. The main problem with Greek gods is that they ar ...

  • Greek Myths - 1,484 words
    Greek Myths Section I:"Odysseus the most cunning man in the world." Odysseus, son of Procris and Cephalus of the Royal House of Athens, played a major role in the Trojan War. However, the legends of Odysseus do not begin until after the great war. At the end of the war he was separated from the rest of the Greek armies and was forced to wander for ten years until he was reunited with his family. His journeys in those ten years were very similar to Jason's journey in his search for the Golden Fleece. Also, in the course of Odysseus' adventures, he proved himself to be not only a great hero but also a cunning and resourceful man, worthy of the title the most cunning man in the world. There are ...

  • Heroism - 521 words
    Heroism In Mythology Heroism is an important element in both Roman and Greek mythology. Honored as a man of cunning and a master of strategy, Odysseus is a beau ideal of Greek heroism. Being a man of sacrifice, rational thinking, and discipline, Aeneas is a praised counterpart to Odysseus. Both were victims of savagery and temptation, examples of heroism and valor, and recipients of struggle and satisfaction. Even when they are characters of different authors, they share common characteristics and abide by certain personality traits that define them to be heroes. A hero, almost by definition, is an example of heroism and intelligence. In times of danger and desolation, a hero must remain str ...

  • History Of Computer Animation - 1,780 words
    History Of Computer Animation To look at him, you would not think that Phil Tippett is the creator of some of the most horrific and terrifying monsters ever witnessed by the human race. A quite normal-looking man of average height, with thinning grey hair, he has been at the forefront of movie animation for almost three decades. Phil Tippett is one of the greatest animators of all time, starting off with the age-old techniques of stop-motion and then moving on to the technical computer generated wizardry of today. I chose to write about him because I greatly admire the work he had done in the industry and he has witnessed first hand the technological advances that have occurred during the co ...

  • Homer Is All Mixed Up - 1,557 words
    Homer Is All Mixed Up Bruns 1 AP English 12 October 23, 2000 Homer is All Mixed Up Homer's epic, the Odyssey, is a heroic narrative that follows the adventures of Odysseus, the powerful King of Ithaca. The main story involves Odysseus's return journey to his homeland after the Trojan War. However, Homer skips around in the action periodically to give the reader a better understanding and interest in what is going on in the epic. Homer takes his audience from the present action involving Telemakhos' search for news of his father's return, to the past where Odysseus tells the Phaiakians of his tragic journey home after the war. The events in Homer's epic are not in order but still prove more e ...

  • Ku Klux Klan - 1,191 words
    Ku Klux Klan The Ku Klux Klan: The First Era With the ending of the Civil War in 1865, the period of American history known as the Reconstruction began. It was during this era that the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist group, spunoff from the freemasons, first came to power. The Freemasons usually tended to attract people in the upper-middle class, while the KKK and Knights of Labor, another racist group, attracted the working class. The KKK was formed mostly to restore the "peculiar institution" of slavery to America and to reinstate the Caucasian race as the most superior race in the world. A former Confederate general and Freemason, Nathan Bedford Forrest, founded the Klan in 1866 because ...

    Ku Klux Klan Ku Klux Klan Over the years many people havecreated groups to support their beliefs. These groups allow people with the same ideas to gather together and work out plans to advance their ideas. All of the groups that have been established have not necessarily gained a positive image from the public. One example is the Ku Klux Klan. The Ku Klux Klan originated over one hundred years ago and has gone through many eras and changes since its beginning. Although many people know the Ku Klux Klan exists, they do not understand its purpose or how it has changed throughout its life. After the Civil War ended, the Southern states went through a time known as Reconstruction. Ex-Confederate ...

  • Literary Heroes: Beowulf And Odysseus - 629 words
    Literary Heroes: Beowulf And Odysseus Literary Heroes: Beowulf and Odysseus Reading through Beowulf I began to compare it to the last great epic I read, Homers The Odyssey. While The Odyssey and Beowulf are each examples of both historic and modern ideas of heroism, the acts of Beowulfs hero seem to fit better within its context. Beowulf exhibits many obvious heroic qualities, such as his strength and confidence in battle. These along with more subtle diplomatic actions serve to define him as both a great warrior and leader. Beowulf shows both wit and patience in his swift retort after Unferth challenges his skill. Later, after proving himself by dismembering Grendel, he accepts Unferths swo ...

  • Mystical Caves Used Throughout Mythology The Use Of Caves In Mythology To Depict Darkness And Abandonment Has Branded It As A - 1,677 words
    Mystical Caves Used Throughout Mythology The use of caves in mythology to depict darkness and abandonment has branded it as a symbol of chaos. From this perception other associations are made which connect the cave to prejudices, malevolent spirits, burial sites, sadness, resurrection and intimacy. It is a world to which only few venture, and yet its mysticism has attracted the interest of philosophers, religious figures and thinkers throughout history. These myths are exemplified in Homers "Odyssey," where the two worlds of mortals and immortals unite in the eternal cave. To Plato, the cave represents the confusion between reality and falsehood. Individuals chained deep within the recesses ...

    Odysseus The Great Odysseus the Great Of all the mythological heroes, Odysseus would have to be the greatest. His adventures strengthened him and made him wiser.

One of the characteristics of an epic hero is superhuman strength and Odysseus strength is definitely superior.

Penelope, his wife, created this challenge to insure that she would not have to merry another man. Then Odysseus, disguised as ...

  • Odyssey - 1,671 words
    Odyssey In book 23 of the Odyssey, reoccurring Homeric themes appear, characters roles change, and a homecoming for an epic hero is finally accomplished. Book 23 may be the one book in this poem that can be related the closest to the poem as a whole. In this book, we see the relationship of a god/goddess and a human being as a reoccurring theme throughout Homers works. This god/human relationship is shown throughout the poem mainly through the actions of Athene, who is trying to assure that Odysseus receives the glorious homecoming that he deserves. Book 23 concludes Odysseuss twenty-year homecoming journey by uniting him with his beloved wife, Penelope. The homecoming that is looked forward ...

  • Odyssey - 1,217 words
    Odyssey The Odyssey, by Homer, is a classical piece of Greek literature. Throughout The Odyssey, Homer makes use of many literary techniques in order to give meaning to the poem beyond its significance as a work of historic fiction and help his readers in the comprehension of the story. One of these techniques is the use of motifs. In The Odyssey, perhaps the most important of Homer's motifs is the symbolic death and rebirth theme. This motif is used throughout The Odyssey to emphasize the growth and maturation of the characters. The first example of this motif occurs with Telemachus early in the book. Telemachus, in book I, is visited by the goddess Athena in disguise. In their conversation ...

  • Orion - 736 words
    Orion Orion Down fell the red skin of the lion Into the river at his feet. His mighty club no longer beat The forehead of the bull; but he Reeled as of yore beside the sea, When blinded by Oenopion He sought the blacksmith at his forge, And climbing up the narrow gorge, Fixed his blank eyes upon the sun. ~The Occultation of Orion by Mr. Longfellow~ This poem was written about the Greek myth of Orion. The story says that Orion, the son of Neptune, was a handsome giant and a mighty hunter. His father gave him the power of wading through the depths of the sea, or, as others would say, walking on its surface. Orion loved Merope, the daughter of Oenopion, king of Chios, and sought her in marriage ...

  • Richard The Lion Hearted - 1,618 words
    Richard The Lion Hearted Greek Mythology played a very key role in the lives of the Greeks. Through the many legends about the gods, the Greeks were able to find reasons for all the laws of nature in a supernatural form. These legends were passed down from generation to generation until the spread of Christianity. On top of giving the Greeks reasons for natures action, their religion also gave them a faith that thing were going to be okay, which is something that all humans crave. The Greeks had 13 major gods. They often used these gods in their myths and prayed to them for particular needs. The head of the gods was Zeus who was also the god of the sky. Whenever Zeus spoke, he was listened t ...

  • Satan: The True Hero Of Paradise Lost - 1,646 words
    Satan: The True Hero Of Paradise Lost Satan: The True Hero of Paradise Lost The argument over who is the true protagonist of Paradise Lost, has been brewing for centuries. One would gather that Milton, a Puritan, would have no problem casting God as the hero, and Satan as the antagonist. But looking back in history, Milton saw that most epic heroes had conflicts that prevented them from accomplishing their goals. God and his Son have no conflict, and Adam's story doesn't really begin until the Fall of Man. Therefore, Milton was forced to select Satan as the hero of Paradise Lost because he adheres to the guidelines of epic poetry set by Homer, Vergil and others. There many examples of how Mi ...
