The Art of Storytelling in The Odyssey: Conflict, good versus evil, romance, and adventure. - ... The conflict he faces in choosing fidelity to home carries realistic undertones. Conflict is something every person faces each day, whether it be morally, emotionally, mentally, or physically. It acts as a bridge by which a reader can connect to a good story and resonate with its truths in hardship.

Homer demonstrates this connection in his story by maintaining a constant foreplay of good versus evil, hero versus villain....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Greek Classics] 1522 words

Any successful leader’s goal is to lead his group, and for Odysseus to allow his men to aimlessly wander around the island, does not illustrate proper leadership. Although Odysseus’s intention is to explore the island first, he should have either gone alone or with a few of his men, which would have portrayed courage and adequate leadership. Additionally, through several of his adventures, Odysseus loses his men one by one, ending up not bringing any of his men home to Ithaka. For example, Helios’s resentment toward Odysseus’s men prompts him to exclaim, “O Father Zeus and gods in bliss forever,/ punish Odysseus’ men!” (XII, 484-485) As stated, the gods punish the men for consuming the cattle, proving how Odysseus is solely not able to guide his men to survival....   [tags: Literary Characters] 1480 words

Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy - The Humanist Chronotope - Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy - The Humanist Chronotope In "Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel," Mikhail Bakhtin defines the chronotope as "the intrinsic connectedness of temporal and spatial relationships that are artistically expressed in literature" (84). That is what the chronotope is; Bakhtin continues with what the chrontope does: "It can even be said that it is precisely the chronotope that defines genre and generic distinctions" (85). In The Spanish Tragedy, Kyd layers three chronotopic zones to create a new chronotope, the "humanist chronotope," which in turn creates a unique dramatic genre, one we might call "humanist drama." According to Bakhtin, two seminal chronotopes from classical literature form the basis of most later chronotopes....   [tags: Spanish Tragedy]

Campbell defines a hero one as "who has found or done something beyond the normal range of achievement and experience. A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."
