What does Odysseus say that makes him so heroic?





  •   
In my English class, we HAVE to write an essay on why Odysseus (in the Odyssey) is so heroic in books 1-12. I somewhat disagree, but then I'd fail... so... I've already got what Odysseus DOES that makes him heroic, but I need what he SAYS that makes him heroic. I've looked all over, but I feel like he hasn't said anything heroic.... so please help me! If you could put in the book and lines that would be great, if not, that's okay too. Thanks so much!

    While others were considered heroes for their strength and skill in battle, Odysseus was considered a hero for his wits and strategy. His quick thinking got himself and his companions out of a tight spot more than once. Think of the differences between Ares and Athene (who was Odysseus’ main goddess). :) I don’t see how you could think he wasn’t heroic; the entire story is set around him! But when it comes to being heroic, your actions tend to be more important than just words.

    well, i don’t think he says anything. i think he is so famous because he outsmarted a huge monster. hope this helped!

    What he says? Thats going to be a problem, the Greeks didn’t beleive true heroes talked much, they thought heroes acted. I don’t think Odysseus really says all that much besides maybe his conversation with the Cyclops, but that was more trickery then heroic…
