I need an essay on why Odysseus was a hero.?
The first thing we need to understand about Greek heroes is what they are. A Greek hero, in general, was a great warrior who fought and died on the battle field. Achilles is the “perfect” Greek hero. The only value of a hero is in achieving glory and being a good guest/host as the case may be. Odysseus, unlike this description, was a hero who had no pride, and was wise as well as strong and courageous. There are many reasons Odysseus was a hero. But its your homework, I won’t do it for you. Just wanted to give a few pointers about Greek heroes.
