Is Odysseus a Hero?

By: Carmen Flores

I consider Odysseus a hero because he was strong.

In the story, Odysseus was considered a hero by his fellow member on ship. One way he was a hero was that he was strong. In the story, it actually says," they jabbed it into the one and only eye of the ogre." this proved he was strong because it will take a lot of strength to jab, a young tree's trunk into a Cyclops' eye.

I consider Odysseus a hero because he was thinking very smart.

Another way Odysseus was considered a hero was because he took his time to think instead of just rushing into a quick action plan that would probably kill them all. In the text it says," he told the Cyclops that his name was, “nobody." This proves that Odysseus was a hero because of his smart thinking, by telling the Cyclops the wrong name, that way the other Cyclops' would think that the one Cyclops in the cave was alright.
