In a 1000-1500 word paper, compare the ancient representations of heroism (as it is portrayed in the Iliad and Odyssey) with modern representations of heroism (as it is portrayed in modern media). How are heroes defined? How do they (ideally) behave? What do they value? Use examples from the text of the Iliad and/or Odyssey to support your arguments. When you cite specific lines of text, or paraphrase larger passages, please use parenthetical citations to indicate what book and line numbers you are referring to (e.g. Iliad 5.1-10). Use examples from modern media to support your arguments about modern definitions of heroism, and make sure you cite where you are drawing those examples from (for TV shows and movies, simply cite the name of the TV show or movie; for books, cite title and author and, if you are using SPECIFIC quotes and not just paraphrases, please include page number). Feel free to comment on WHY you think certain aspects of heroism are so similar/different from each other, if you like.
