What do you admire and criticise about Odysseus behaviour as a hero? - “What do you admire, and what do you find to criticise, in Odysseus’ behaviour as a hero?” What I admire about Odysseus’ behaviour as a hero is his confidence. Rather than being self-doubting of his abilities he is proud of them. We see this in Book 9 when he deals with the Cyclops Polyphemus. Firstly, he tells the Cyclops his name is ‘Nobody’. This idea helps him to escape at the end when Polyphemus screams “O my friends, it’s Nobody’s treachery, not violence that is doing me to death”, and the other Cyclopes believe that nobody is hurting him....   [tags: essays research papers] 829 words
