The Trojan War
The Trojan War is an important turning point in history for all of Greece. The Greeks fought at Troy of Anatolia against the Trojans during a later period of the Bronze Age. Paris’ judgement of the most beautiful goddesses was the beginning of the war because of the bribe that Aphrodite offered Paris. Paris is the son of King Priam of Troy and the brother of Hector, the noblest of all fighters during the Trojan War. The main cause of the war was that Helen was taken from the Spartan king, Menelaus, brother of Agamemnon, by Paris because of the Judgement. Helen was the wife of Menelaus, the king of Sparta and she herself was the bribe that Aphrodite had offered to Paris. Many great soldiers fought and died in combat for their city-state. The strategies used by the Greek army were impressive and productive. The war has gone down in history just as Achilles had wanted. The Trojan War was a very eventful battle, fought by many soldiers, at the city of Troy.
The Greek army had some of the finest warriors and leaders of the ancient times. Menelaus was the king who united the Greek armies in which Achilles was not fond of. Menelaus was brother of Agamemnon who was the Achaean King and the leader of the combined armies. The Greek army was considerably large because they had conquered so many city-states and forced them to join or be enslaved. Achilles was the greatest of all the soldiers during the war. Achilles said to be “a demi-god and the Greatest warrior in Homer’s Iliad.”(Cartwright) Achilles singlehandedly conquered the Trojan beach with his powerful yet small Argonaut army ahead of all the other Greek ships. Achilles greatest war accomplishment was killing Hector the eldest son of king Priam, and the greatest Trojan warrior. Achilles was eventually “killed by an arrow to his only weak spot, his…...

The Book Thief - Rudy

...Question: Choose one character and describe their actions and personality. How do they help to illustrate the key ideas of the novel? The character Rudy Steiner in The Book Thief is constructed to represent particular ideas about the dualities of Nazi-era Germany and the importance of loyalty. Rudy is kind and loyal towards his family and friends throughout the novel. This is specifically true when it comes to Liesel. His friendship with Liesel develops from a playful youthfulness to a strong bind that connects them over time and words. This is shown when Viktor Chemmel begins berating Liesel and he tosses Liesel’s book in the river, Rudy doesn’t hesitate to dive in after it, not because it holds any value to him but because he knows it’s important to Liesel, “A book floated down the Amper River. A boy jumped in, caught up to it, and held it in his right hand. He grinned” Through this action the ideas about the value of loyalty are highlighted. In several ways Rudy is also representative of a typical teenager, and he shows that even in extraordinary circumstances people will continue to have rather ordinary concerns. Although there’s a war going on, his main interest is usually soccer or winning races. His conflicts in the Hitler Youth have nothing to do with ideology; they’re simply about the fact that he and Franz Deutscher have taken a disliking to each other, “Four gold medals…It would show all those bastards who said I was crazy” Through these simple mundane tasks the...

...cannot possibly understand the danger that they are putting themselves in. Here, the danger symbolized by the node is intentionally mitigated and successfully appears to be safer than it really is. The symbol of the node is again altered when it is depicted in the scene where Rudy, who works for the US military, detects Memo tracking the frequency used by his military drone. In the scene, Rudy is sitting in a dark room where he is connected to his drone through his nodes. Rudy is wearing a robotic mask with lit up red goggles that makes him look even more intimidating than he already does in the dark room. Through this depiction of Rudy, the symbol of the nodes changes back into a more menacing image with the capability of his drone to demolish his blindly assigned targets. As the film progresses, the symbol of the node shifts again towards its connective nature when Memo leaves Oaxaca to Tijuana to seek work. On his way to Tijuana, he meets Luz who has nodes on her body through which she uses to upload her memories to TruNode, a company that downloads and sells such memories to viewers. Luz directs Memo where to get nodes implanted after he asks her, and she uploads her memory of meeting Memo on to TruNode. Rudy, who has been curious about Memo’s motives for traveling to Tijuana, discovers Luz’s uploaded memory of meeting Memo and pays her for more memories to be uploaded. Luz, owing a sum of student loans, agrees to his request. Subsequently, Luz finds Memo and continues......

The Book Thief

...leaves in Autumn as the times get tough. The race between Liesel and Rudy symbolizes the beginning of their new friendship because it was decided to be called a draw and that basically means half and half odds and when they go to the mayor’s house to steal books, they are side by side. Also, the race is revelatory to the characters because Rudy wants to show his affection and kiss Liesel. Liesel thinks her and Rudy are only friends while Rudy will be devoted to attract her in for a kiss. As a parent explaining Rudy’s actions, I would tell him that your admiration for one athlete can be extremely exuberant but painting yourself his skin color in this time where prejudice of different people was very high, it clearly isn’t the smartest move. The itch in my heart is that it is morally wrong to paint yourself black and if you go that extreme with your admiration, Rudy can honestly be taken and have a higher chance to be killed by Nazi Germany. Hans and Liesel are considered to be alike because they are both passionate and kind individuals and are non supporters of the Nazi party. Both were against the Nazi Party but Liesel couldn’t go under the radar like Hans could. Another difference between the two is that Hans had more integrity and honor buy purchasing his step-daughter a book while Liesel stole books. Liesel most definitely could have trusted Rudy with the secret of having Max hidden in her basement. Rudy was clearly Liesel’s best friend and partner in crime when......
