A true hero has no fear. A hero would risk himself for what he believes to be right and to protect others. I think of someone who, in my opinion of others, has heroic traits or has performed a brave act and is regarded as a representation or ideal is a hero. Heros always have people to look up to him and will always excel when the going gets treacherous. Beowulf is a good example of a hero, because he stared terror in his eyes and saved his land many of times.

He stands strong with his own ideas even when most people do not agree with him. He creates h... ... middle of paper ... ...Huck’s resolution to his conflict. In my final analysis of this story I must say that it is deserving of its place in history as a classic novel. I really liked Huckleberry Finn, and think that despite his upbringing and difficult life, he is just a young boy trying to make it through life with a sense of dignity and respect for self by doing what he thinks is right, even when others do not agree.

Here, the “nigger” is portrayed as more of a man than any white person and Twain uses this to show how wrong and sinful slavery is. The concept of slavery itself is built upon the idea that one race is better than the other; racism does not take morals, ethics, or beliefs into account when determining
We just love seeing such reluctant heroes fight their own nature to do the right thing. It also gives us hope and we feel rewarded when we see them conquer the darkness and take a step back towards the side of good. Plus, “anti-heroes” are just plain fun. The world would be a more stark place with only “white knights” and “black-hearted villains.” Anti-heroes keep us guessing and give us something to have hope for. We are a society impossibly addicted to hope and as we constantly see, we are addicted to “anti-heroes.” We want to believe in the goodness inside people, and we feel justifiably rewarded when we catch glimpses of it in someone who we did not initially perceive as being good.
Perhaps this is because Dallas tough and only sees hatred and darkness in the world. On the other hand, Johnny is scared of the world. He suggests Ponyboy stays innocent. Johnny thinks Ponyboy should “stay gold” because he sees the light and happiness in the world. Even though they are very different, they share similarities.
