Mythic Heros: Sinbad The Sailor - Mythic Heros: Sinbad the Sailor When I think about mythic heroes, for many years the first name that came to mind was Sinbad: Sinbad the sailor. In his days as an adventurer, he went on seven fantastic voyages which earned him fame for the rest of his life. Yet, now in retrospect, I no longer consider him to be the great adventurer that I saw him as in my childhood. On his seven voyages, Sinbad encountered every obstacle one could possibly think of. He and his crew met up with: a fish so large, many mistook it for an island, an island where rocs (enormous birds (their eggs were often mistaken for buildings)) still lived, cannibals, giants, and even herds of angry elephants....   [tags: essays research papers] 517 words

Essay on Tom's Escape in The Glass Menagerie - Tom's Escape in The Glass Menagerie      In Tennessee Williams' play, The Glass Menagerie, each member of the Wingfield family has their own fantasy world in which they indulge themselves. Tom escaped temporarily from the fantasy world of Amanda and Laura by hanging out on the fire escape. Suffocating both emotionally and spiritually, Tom eventually sought a more permanent form of escape.   Tom supports his family despite his unhappiness of his world.  He tries to please Amanda by  being the sole supporter, but only gets rewarded by Amanda's constant nagging and suspicion.  Eventually Tom finds himself more like his father as he seeks adventure in the movies and hangs out on the fire escape he avoids suffocation, and desperately seeks the life he always desired; the life of adventure.                By hanging out on the fire escape, Tom finds a temporary safe haven from Amanda.  With Amanda nagging Tom about every minute action, like mastication, Tom needed to find somewhere to escape.  Perhaps, even more, the fire escape shows various things about Tom's personality.  Since Amanda and Laura have their illusionary worlds inside, Tom can easily escape these worlds by going out on the firescape.  He does not desire to be part of an imaginary world, which only proves to be the downfall of Amanda and Laura.  He realizes that the world is not what Amanda has made it seem inside the house.  Also, during his reflections on the firescape he is not really separating himself from the imaginary world because that metal frame is still anchored to the apartment wall.  This shows that no matter how hard Tom tries to escape he will always be 'bounded' to the apartment.  His emotional attachments to Laura would permantly keep him there no matter what adventure he had chose to seek out.                With such a dull and stressful life, Tom was always looking for adventure like his father.  Although it is only referred to a couple of times, the portrait of Tom's father is one of the mose important symbols representing Tom.  In the play, the portriat is a consant reminder to Amanda of the past she once knew and cherished.  A long time ago, Amanda's husband abandoned her and her children becaouse of his unhappy home life.  Tom, like his father, felt that his home life was suppressing his true desires for adventure.  It became unseemingly impossible for Tom to enjoy himself with Amanda's nagging.  At every possible moment Tom would speak of some adventure, something grander he could be experiencing.  Eventually using the money for the electric bill Tom paid dues to the Union of Merchant Seamen.  That organization was his savor from suffocation and a ticket to the life of adventure....   [tags: Glass Menagerie essays]
