Reviews for Odysseus: The AntiHero
Sparkle 94 chapter 1 . 5/15/2017
You make some good points but the problem is your looking at Odysseus from a modern definition of a hero. This is another cultural with values and concepts we're not farmilar with. The point of a greek hero for the greeks was more about their historical importance then how good they were in fact they were supposed to be tragically flawed much like shakespere's concept of a hero. Their heroes were usually people who brought awful circumstances upon themselves and others. They sometimes atoned for those actions but more often then not they ended up ruined or even dead. So for our cultural he would not be considered a hero but from the ancient Greek perspective he does fit the heroic ideal. It does make you think thought about the ideas and values of heroism have changed through the centuries and how every fictional hero says something about the values and ideas of the culture.
