Beowulf and Sir Gawain have many things in common. We will be discussing them later on, but their main similarity is that they're both heroes. A hero is a person who must pass through a test and a battle (mental, spiritual or physical) to help someone else. He must be selfless, and act for others rather than himself. All societies have supported heroes, like the ancient Greek's Hercules and the modern day Spiderman.
I enjoyed all the characters in Something Wicked This Way Comes they all played a significant role in the novel but I have to say one of my favorites in the whole book was, Charles Halloway. Heroes come in all shapes in sizes and I believe Charles was a huge hero in the novel. He is also kind, loving, intelligent, and is willing to sacrifice himself; the bad thing is he lets self doubt take him over and regrets too much. I liked him because he through this rough time Charles Halloway was able to make something good come out of i... ... middle of paper ... ...ersonally, I fell in love with the book. Ray Bradbury has a more unique style in writing than most authors.
The first one is about a helper who supports the hero during a difficult time that would help him succeed through his journey. The second argument would be the most adventurous parts of the quest. The final argument would be different but important aspects of the quest. In the movie Spiderman, Peter Parker/ Spiderman is the hero as his life consists of the stages Protected Youth-the helper appears, The call to adventure and New Landscapes-Road of Trials. Every hero needs help sometime through his or her quest, even Spiderman.
To be a superhero there are some element s someone need to have to call himself a superhero.

This is what makes us enjoy the work even more. It’s very interesting that this idea of describing characters has followed us all the way into the 21st century. For example From the Canterbury Tales, The Prologue by Geoffrey Chaucer, Chaucer delves deep into describing each character. Although there are many diverse characters mentioned in the general prologue my three favorite are the Knight, the Monk and the Doctor. To begin, the Knight is my favorite character because the description of him really gave me a feel of what I believed the medieval times to be all about.
Heroes have always played a part in humanity, they can be found in literature, painting and other forms of art. But what determines a hero? of course there is a dictionary definition, each individual has their own icon so the answer must be subjective to each person. A hero is someone that is admired because of the characteristics they possess, or their actions. The definition that I recognize is, somebody who is a leader that is skilled and loyal.. A hero is a great leader, that is skilled, clever, ruthless, just and loyal.
When legends are told throughout the world about heroes, the picture that we have of that hero is someone like Beowulf. However, the reason why we see Bilbo Baggins as a hero is because he is so similar to the rest of us. He portrays the average person but Bilbo has gone the extra step. He takes risks and faces battles that seem impossible to conquer. This is why we he is a hero.
