REACTION PAPER ABOUT THE ODYSSEY

Submitted to:

In The Odyssey by Homer there are many important themes that are also reflected in many movies of today’s time. One of them is that the idea of fate may feel very uncomfortable. The fact that people have no control over their lives can make them very uneasy about life. Another theme is that great heroes are created by the noble deeds that they do. And yet another theme is that patience is something that must be learned over time, usually by some type of suffering.

Patience is a virtue that must be learned, usually through suffering. Odysseus had to patiently suffer through 20 long years of struggling to get back to his family, which only strengthened his patience because he knew he would get back some day.
Great heroes are made great by noble deeds of mind, body, and spirit. Odysseus was a very noble man, defined only by the seemingly endless amount of noble deeds he had done throughout his quest. Human beings are frequently alienated from god and have no control over the fate that befalls them but they do have control over their own reactions to the events of their lives.
The lessons in life are learned by choice or the experiences of others. In Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, life applications are implied through the different adventurous journeys of Odysseus, the protagonist. These adventures relay certain and different knowledge to every individual reader. Some of this knowledge includes the relation of numerous morals to everyday life experiences such as identity and boasting, surrogates, and enjoying life as a whole.…...

Angels and Demons

...mammoth fields bloom and where majestic monsters roam. They spend a short period together before Shun passes on, leading Asuna to feelings of longing. It isn't long before Ryuuji Morisaki, a substitute teacher, discusses the legend of Agartha (Shamballa, Hades etc. in other literary beliefs) in class, picking Asuna's interest. She visits him later that day and comes to learn of his intentions, eventually agreeing to accompany him on his journey to Agartha. Evaluation: Well this movie obviously reflects the other belief of another world, god, and mythical creatures, which proves that this is really related to what we are studying especially in the story of Illiad and Oddysey. In comparison the presence of gods and goddesses, mythical creatures, prophets and heroes are bought seen in Homer’s Illiad and Oddysey and in this movie. I’ve spent almost two (2) hours or 116 minutes to be précised in watching this awful movie. Maybe we can use it for this movie for me has the sub-them still-life…, deals about grief, lost, loneliness, major emotional intensity which young people frequently experiencing but do not know how to dominate or overcome it without recoil or complications. If we will tackle about this, I think it would be beneficial for everyone. I love the whole movie. Maybe, if there is some part I may not wanted it the way it is, it maybe the plot, for Shinkai revealed in the ending part of the story the plot by Asuna’s self-questioning about his adventures and......

Parmenides and Ancient Greek Mythology

...is also provable. Myth is not provable because it is an imaginary story and explanations are grounded in oral tradition, which are not to be questioned. In his epic, the goddess invites the audience to decide for themselves rather than leaving explanations of the world up to senseless imaginations. He leads the viewer to prove truth in itself, by following the way of truth and opinion, and by ultimately proving that the way of opinion is nonsensical (T v. 2-3). Ancient Greek mythology provided surface understanding of the world through knowledge of the senses. This knowledge was then verified by imagination, which is not provable. Although Parmenides presented his philosophy in the same structural way as the standard epic mythology, The Oddysey, he veered from mythological thinking in several ways. Parmenides appealed to self for reasoning, created the first crude form of logic, and made his own reasoning provable. Source: Parmenides Poem, Being is All There IS...
