Hogwarts Professor John Granger has examined some of these similarities at his blog site, including the literary alchemy of both works, their ring composition, and underlying morality. This series of essays will compare Harry Potter and the Hunger Games in three areas:

For Katniss Everdeen, defeating her fellow tributes is not the final trial. To effect lasting change for her people, she must ultimately bring down President Snow and the government. So Harry descends and returns seven times over the seven years of his story, while Katniss descends and returns three times.

Kelly was asking about Supernatural Aid in the Hunger Games, for instance, and I think that is one step that is absent there. I also agree with Jenna that many authors may not even know they are creating a plotline that follows the monomyth. It may just be in our collective subconscious as a species that these are the steps which make a good story.

the heroic enemy book pdf

It has remained uncertain until now to which Theoderic the third stanza alludes, whether to the legendary Theoderic the Great, king of the Visigoths, or to a lesser-known Frankish king. What makes these four stanzas so intriguing is that each ends with the same refrain: Apparently, mutability is of great concern to Deor, and after stanza four, he comforts himself and his audience that God is in control of changes in this world.

Such cursory allusions to famous heroes in Deor and Widsith suggest that their adventures were quite well known by professional singers in Anglo-Saxon England and also, in some form, by their intended audience.

Further familiarity with the heroes of old is supported by the fragmentary poem Waldere. Walter and Hiltgunt escape, taking two chests of gold with them. Her long speech is full of heroic sentiments.

For example, she formulates the dilemma Walter is facing: She repeats the heroic choice a little later to Waldere, but negatively this time.

For some reason or other revenge? This time, Finn is killed, his hall plundered, and Hilde- burh taken home in triumph. In Beowulf, the emphasis is not so much on violent action as on the moral implications of revenge, the taking and breaking of oaths, and the cruel outcome, especially for Hildeburh, of predominantly male preoccupations with honour and shame.

The Fragment deals with the beginning of the enmities.

Beowulf is particularly rich in celebrating heroic ideals. In the preliminaries to the actual story in and around the hall of Hrothgar, king of the Danes, one of his ancestors is being praised. Moreover, we are told that he was the strongest man in his time, of noble birth, and had that extra quality eacen it takes to be exceptional.

Having completed that mission, Hrothgar bestows on Beowulf twelve precious gifts, a number of which Beowulf, upon his return home, magnanimously passes on to his lord, Hygelac. Would their having joined such a brave man have been enough reward for them?

The dragon appears to be so frightening that ten of them rush shamefully to the woods. Only one, Wiglaf, remains resolute and reminds his coward companions of the mead drinking, the receiving of rings, and the making of promises to their lord to repay him for the many war-equipments he had given to them. As for himself, he would rather be burnt to cinders than forsake his lord.

Beowulf ends with his complex ceremonial funeral. Twelve warriors ride around his memorial tomb and acclaim his eorlscipe. Let us take loyalty as an example.

The poet does not give us an answer, leaving it to his audience to solve these moral questions. The heroic code cannot apparently be adhered to under all circum- stances. Particularly in Beowulf, not only the ideals but also the shortcomings of the heroic ethic are critically sounded. More than once we read of treachery, exile, and the killing of kings in the frequently terse prose of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.

Examples of Tacitean loyalty are also present: Equally unusual is that Sigebriht is not driven from the country but is allowed to keep Hampshire.

Some of his retainers remained loyal to him in his degraded position, but instead of rewarding gratitude he even killed the Ealdorman Cumbra who stood by him longest. Eventually, a swineherd stabbed him there to avenge Cumbra. Under cover of night, Cyneheard and his men sneak into the enclosure and surround the chamber a detached small building outside the hall in which the king spends the night with the unnamed woman.

Aroused by the noise outside, Cynewulf goes to the door and nobly defends himself until he notices Cyneheard, rushes towards him, and wounds him severely. This they refuse. Whether it is the residue of oral tradition or an embellished imaginative recreation of an actual event continues to be a moot point amongst the critics.

So much is clear that long after the conversion the time-honoured ethos was still alive in literature. Rather, the new religion had accommodated the ancient warrior code.

Beowulf in its own peculiar way is the work of a Christian, even though Christ is never mentioned. From ethos to propaganda Two poems remain to be discussed that employ the heroic ethos but celebrate contemporary events of the late tenth century rather than the deeds of ancient Germanic heroes.

The poem praises in stock heroic terms the king of the Anglo-Saxons and thus of the nation as a whole. By this method the poet creates a link with the heroic genre of old and expressly refers back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon invasions: Proud battle-smiths, they overcame the Welsh.

Warriors eager for glory, they gained the land. Finally, by using the stock heroic phraseology the poet has successfully attempted to place his work in the epic tradition, yet applied to contemporaneous, historical char- acters. Many elements of the comitatus spirit are present: The almost monotonous expression of successive retainers of their sui- cidal resolve to avenge Byrthnoth has often been adduced as evidence for the continuity of the heroic code until late Anglo-Saxon times.

Apparently, the poet was a clergyman. The time was ripe for a change. References and suggested reading Bazelmans, Jos.
