These Epic heroes which show human conditions are Gilgamesh, Achilles from Homer's Iliad and Beowulf.

Siegfried vs Beowulf - “Any relations in a social order will endure, if there is infused into them some of that spirit of human sympathy which qualifies life for immortality.” -George William Russell Homer defines a hero as one who acquires and maintains honor through victory in battle while embracing a highly individualistic attitude. Homer’s epic warriors were self-interested in order to preserve their honor and to acquire fame--the currency used by the hero to achieve immortality. Heroes of this archetype often show a neglectful disregard for the lives of their warriors and supporting cast....   [tags: Compare, Contrast, Comparative]

The Epic Poem of Beowulf and The Tale of the Great Warrior - The epic poem of Beowulf and the tale of the great warrior has been one of the most revered texts of old Anglo-Saxon literature, and has maintained a self-sustaining relevance in today’s society as a result of the vast amounts of translations and reworks of the tale into movies, art, and literature. The epic poem dates back to the ninth century and was first translated off of an old frayed manuscript, leaving some portions of the epic to be left up to the reader of the absent text. The epic story was thought to originate from an oral background as traditional folk tale, yet this has been questioned for debate....   [tags: good vs. evil, critics, literature] 1223 words

Transcendentalism in Beowulf and Antigone - Transcendentalism in Beowulf and Antigone As time progressed through the various ages, Ancient to Renaissance, a trend began to form in the literature. The Ancient periods, reflected in the writings of the Taoists and the Greeks, were basically a time of transcendentalism. The gods of this era were treated almost as if they are friends to the people, or advisors; the gods controlled their fates and the uncontrollable, but the people were still very individualistic. As time progressed forwards, a trend swept Europe towards a period of theism, where the god or gods are treated as father figures; the gods controlled the lives of all their people just as parents control their children,...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 2094 words

Comparing Beowulf and Jesus - Beowulf's character is very much similar to that of Jesus' in many ways. To the Danes he is recognized as a saviour, releasing them from the bonds of fear and death that Grendel had placed on Hrothgar's people. Friederich Klaeber writes that the poet raised Beowulf, "To the rank of a singularly spotless hero, a defending, protecting, redeeming being, a truly ideal character. In fact we need not hesitate to recognize features of the Christian Saviour in the destroyer of hellish fiends, the warrior brave and gentle, blameless in thought and deed, the king that dies for his people."

Violence Brought by Violence - “See, people with power understand exactly one thing: violence” (Chomsky). The history of the world is full of blood, greed, and violence. There has only been wars instigated by the rich, powerful and greedy. Violence often lead to more violence which will cause pain everywhere or somewhere in this world (Solter). Just as Issac Asimov once said, “Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent” but things tend to heat up and move up to the next level.

Anglo Saxon Era - Dating back to the stone ages, humans have always instinctively expressed their feelings and emotions through some sort of art or words, thus the beginning of literature. The people of the Anglo Saxon era used poetry predominantly as an expression of life at war and heroic actions.

A Comparison of Nihilistic and Christian Archetypes in Beowulf and John Gardner's Grendel - Grendel, Beowulf and the Relationship Between Nihilistic and Christian Archetypes The Wisdom god, Woden, went out to the king of trolls…and demanded to know how order might triumph over chaos. “Give me your left eye,” said the king of trolls, “and I’ll tell you.” Without hesitation, Woden gave up his left eye. “Now tell me.” The troll said, “The secret is, Watch with both eyes!” Woden’s left eye was the last sure hope of gods and men in their kingdom of light surrounded by darkness. All we have left is Thor’s hammer, which represents not brute force but art, or, counting both hammerheads, art and criticism… The philosophies expressed in the Beowulf epic complement the exploration of exi...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Beowulf's Heroism - Virtue or Flaw? - Beowulf's fight with the dragon is a puzzle. On the surface, it appears to be the hero's final victory, and a fitting end to his noble life. Yet, the circumstances surrounding the battle – Beowulf's disregard for his thanes' advice and the Geats' bleak future without their king – raise pointed questions about Beowulf and his motivations. No where else in the poem are the hero's actions portrayed as anything but right and good.ǂ Not surprisingly, this issue has drawn considerable critical attention....   [tags: Epic of Beowulf Essays]

Beowulf a Poem Translated by Seamus Heaney - In the poem, Beowulf, by an unknown poet, as translated by Seamus Heaney, we see many monstrous behaviors. A few of the examples stand out more than the rest: wanton destruction, a woman acting as a man, and the act of killing one’s kin. Wanton destruction goes against the ideals that governed the Anglo-Saxon culture. The warrior kings had duties to uphold. We see that they revered kings who would bring protection and give freely to the young and old and not cause harm. One good illustration of this is the nature in which King Hrothgar dispensed his wealth, he dispensed it to the needy and he didn’t give away “the common land or the people’s lives” (71-73)....   [tags: beowulf]

The Honourable Warrior in The Nibelungenlied and Beowulf - A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but is the scent sweet the same for everyone. (line 1600, Romeo and Juliet ). If one person from a whole different culture or world believed that something sugary always has a hint of bitterness as well, would one still consider it the same kind of sweet as we do. With this in mind, the meaning and definition of the word honor presents us with the same situation. Considered as an important attribute in what defines warrior-hero, honor is what distinguishes himself from a rampaging animal and other people....   [tags: The Nibelungenlied, Beowulf] 1302 words

Though the story was written in Anglo-Saxon times, the credentials one would need in order to be considered by society a hero remain the same. The Anglo-Saxons believed that a hero was strong and courageous, but humble and kind as well. They also believed that a hero was intelligent and dignified, in which he would fight until death in order to defend his people. In Beowulf and Grendel, directed by Sturla Gunnarsson, Beowulf is depicted as caring, compassionate, noble, and understanding, which makes him seem as if he had every trait of a true hero....   [tags: Beowulf Hero Essay]
