The concept of a hero can be defined in many ways. Many individuals believe to call someone a hero is to give them tremendous power. Certainly that power may be used for good, but it may also be used to destroy individuals. Some of societyâ€™s concept of a hero goes back to their childhood figure that they looked up to. The hero could be there mom, dad, a dog or maybe even the guy on the television who wore tights and a cape and spent his whole day making the world a better place. Societyâ€™s concept of a hero is not going to change; many say Sylvester Stallone was a hero, because of his heroic acts in his movies. With the story Beowulf it is really depending upon the person to decide whose the hero, ...view middle of the document...
It actually depends upon how and what an individual were raised around as a child. Many see the police, fire department, and the soldiers of the United States as heroes because of the heroic acts they do each and everyday for out country.
With Sylvester Stallone much of America saw him as a hero because of the heroic acts he did within his movie scenes. From the cop trying to save the family from harms way to the guy running over the city of New York fighting gang members. Stallionâ€™s character as Rocky, a boxer who fought his heart out against ruthless boxers was the rise of Stallionâ€™s heroic acts. Sylvester did not want to be known for his acts in the movies he wanted to be known as the guy before he began his acting career. With Beowulf it actually comes down to what the reader feels a hero is. The story has many heroesâ€™ the reader could choose from. It starts with the soldiers who risked there life for the monstrous beast to the mom who went in killed due to her sons death.
The concept of a hero can be defined in many ways, but it comes down to the individual and how and what they were raised around. Many see the man on television in tights and a cape as a hero, and some see the people who help others just by the kindness of there heart as a hero. I believe Societyâ€™s concept of a hero changing, because youâ€™re thought of a hero starts at a young age of what u accept a hero to be. Maybe heroes can simply be those people who inspire us to become better than we are. In that case, I find my heroes among my friends, family, and teachers. My mother and father's respect and love for learning had a great influence on me.
