What makes Odysseus a hero?
Textual evedence why Odysseus is a hero
"I sharpened the end of the wood, and hardened the point in the blazing fire,after which I hid it carefully in one of the heaps of dung that lay around the cave." "I ordered the men to cast lots as to which of them should dare to help me raise the stake and twist it into the Cyclops eye when sweet sleep took him." This is what makes him a hero because he is smart.
"My name is Nobody. Nobody, my father, mother, and friends call me." "Nobody, my friends, is trying to kill me by violence or treachery." This is also what makes him a good hero his sneakiness and the way he uses his words.
