Homework Help: English

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 1, 2006 at 9:06pm.

Hey i need to write a essay about the concepts of a epic hero and a modern hero like how they change and so far i have this can u take a look at it?

Has the concept of the epic changed that much over time? Or, do they still have some of the same qualities of what a modern hero now has? Beowulf would represent what a epic hear was like and mom would represent the modern hero.
Strength is both important for the epic and modern, but strength for an epic hero like Beowulf is all about being the toughest. " of all living strong men he was the strongest." (81)" His handgrip has thrity men's strength"(118) The strength that mom has is surviving the hardships she faced in her early years in her hometown.....


Strength is important for both epic and modern heroes, but strength for an epic hero like Beowulf is all about being the toughest. " of all living strong men he was the strongest." (81)" His handgrip has thrity men's strength"(118)<~~Are these line numbers from Beowulf? If so, you need to indicate the source more clearly. You also need to use a word processing program that will spell check your work. The strength that mom has<~~What? You've switched subjects already? Are you brainstorming still? is surviving the hardships she faced in her early years in her hometown.....

Make sure you are clear on the definitions of "hero" and "epic hero" --

I think I would be more comfortable with comparing Beowulf with Superman, RoboCop, or Batman than Beowulf with mom. This of course depends on how you define modern hero, but I lean to a hero of extraordinary dimensions.
