...me by simply taking action and not following everyone else’s weak actions. Just like Faulkner was not afraid to break the cycle of all male policy in the Citadel. Although Faulkner and Goetz might not seem like much of a hero to certain people, but the fact remains, they were not afraid to break the rules and be the hero that their communities desperately desired.
Heroes are needed in every aspect of our lives. If we didn’t heroes rights, our outlook on life would not be the same. Now days, parents tell their kids to dream as big as they can and just believe that one day their dreams will come true. If we did not have heroes who had achieved their dreams, those kids would not be motivated to achieve theirs. Just like Shannon Faulkner had the courage to reverse the odds and enter an all male Citadel, many young girls will have the courage to do the same.

- Heroes of Celtic and Germanic Mythology Throughout the myths of the Celtic and Germanic peoples of northern Europe tales of epic heroes and their extraordinary deeds abound. These tales depict heroes performing a variety of incredible feats; many of which appear to be magical, superhuman, and, quite honestly, utterly impossible (e.g., wading across oceans, defeating armies virtually single-handedly, and other astounding exploits). Since the Celtic and Germanic tribes of antiquity inhabited neighboring lands and lived in close proximity to one another (as many of their modern descendants continue to do: i.e., in Great Britain), it is not surprising that they often established intimate rela...

- From the onset of the twentieth century there has been an ongoing debate on context and text. Literary theorists all over the world propounded many theories that either divorced the two or made their bond stronger.

They completely divorced the work of art from the biographical, sociological context; removed the piece of literature from time and space and made the work an independent, autonomous and self-contained entity....
