Transcript of Chapter 11 Hercules

Chapter 11 Hercules 7.) How does he die and why is he allowed onto Mount Olympus? 5.) How does Hercules become involved in battling Death? 6.) What happens after Hercules completes the twelve labors? 4.) Is he considered guilty of his crimes? 1.) What are four examples of Hercules great strength? 3.) What happens to Hercules when Hera sends madness to possess him? Hercules is the strongest man on Earth (he crushes two snakes with his bare hands before he is a year old); he feels confident that he can succeed in anything he does (he is willing to fight anyone, including the god Apollo); he feels that he is equal to the gods (the Olympians ask for his help in fighting the giants); he thinks he can never be killed by a mortal. In his madness, he murders his wife and children. Later, when he is overcome by a feeling of guilt and horror at what he has done, he consults the Oracle at Delphi to see if he can redeem himself. His atonement is to be a slave to King Eurystheus, who gives Hercules twelve labors to preform. Completing these labors will provide purification. Theseus claims that Hercules is not guilty because of his madness, but Hercules still feels guilt for his crimes. Hercules feels that he needs to atone for his drunken behavior in Admetus' house; he wants Death to give back Alcestis. He becomes a demigod. However, he does not rest after his accomplishment; he continues to preform heroic deeds until he dies. He puts on a shirt bathed in blood when his wife uses the blood of Nessus as a love charm. Hercules chooses death over the agonizing, perpetual agony caused by the blood- soaked shirt. Because of his position as a son of Zeus and his heroic deeds, he is admitted to Mount Olympus. pg. 166-179 2.) How could you interpret the following quote: "Intelligence did not figure largely in anything he did and was often conspicuously absent"? Answers may vary, but it suggests that he does not have intelligence, even if he does have physical strength.
