    Nobody paid $7 to hear Homer read The Odyssey , or lined up to buy Thomas Malory's 15th-century version of King Arthur's legend. But, when Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace opens at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, George Lucas' epic of galactic good and evil will be seen by more people in one day than Homer or Malory ever dreamed of reaching in their lifetimes.

    Different eras, different heroes, yet Lucas' film series contains the same mythic qualities those ancient storytellers and others used to fuel imaginations throughout the ages.

    Odysseus is an epic hero because no matter the tragedy he faces from the gods, specifically poseidon, he overcomes the obsticals and lives. Epic heros are generally heros that undergo torcherous feats and overcome them. Back in the past this play was renowned and odysseus was a hero though today, with people respecting women most dont really see that he is. The gods were in favor of Penolope and Odysseus and their son Talamichus however Penelope wasnt allowed to sleep with another man Odysseus was able to spen 5 years with Circe and months with calipso in their bed. Women were tools of pleasure in the oddessey and were expected to remain faithful no matter what even if Helen of sparta cheated on the king of sparta by being seduced by the king of troy, thus starting the war that forced odysseus away from ithica the day his son was born. He faced the tragedy of ripping his ties from his family, a war, adrift at sea, the wrath of the gods. that is why hes a tragic hero to an epic novel

    Odysseus is different from heroes like Achilles, Ajax or Hector because his greatest asset is his intelligence. He is still a great warrior - but not on the same level as Achilles - but he uses his intelligence to win his battles. It was Odysseus who thought of the idea of the Trojan Horse which ultimately won the Trojan War for the Greeks. In the end it wasn't the battle skills of a great warrior which decided the eventual outcome of the nine siege - it was due to Odysseus using his brain instead of brawn! This intelligence can also be seen at the end of 'The Odyssey' when again, Odysseus uses his intelligence to deal with the suitors - but once he has ensured they have fallen into his trap - then his skills as a warrior come to the fore as he dispatches them and the handmaidens who had succumbed to them mercilessly. Following this, he also tests his wife's faithfulness to him by using a clever trick. So, basically, the thing that differentiates Odysseus from other heroes in an epic story is the fact that he uses his wit and intelligence before his physical strength in his battles. There is no doubting the fact that he is definitely an epic hero though.
