Heroes of the 15th
Common Hero Traits
The heroes in this century mostly influenced their society by being well-mannered, honest, sticking to their beliefs and respected by their class and good deeds.
Prince Hamlet was a character in the play, "The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark" written by William Shakespeare.
Hamlet is considered a hero, because he stayed true to himself. He protected his faith in the world that he lived in.
Hamlet was a role model to a lot of people, because he didn't let the bad in the world get to him. He was noble and courageous in the play. That is why he's considered a literary hero.
From the book, Don Quixote de la Mancha, by Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote was a middle aged gentlemen who went mad from reading too many books about chivalry and knighthood. He long for a sense of purpose and beauty he believed the world lacked.
Even though his good intentions did more harm than good, he began to distinguish between reality and his imagination through out the story.
Don Quixote was a honest, dignified, proud, and intelligent man who would at times appear sane and would like nothing more than to save the world. It wasn't until Don Quixote died of fever that he claimed to regain his sanity.
From William Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet. He is the son and heir of Montague. Romeo is a young 16 year old boy, who lived in the middle of a feud between his parent's rival families. Though he is expected to join his family's side and support them, it is clear that Romeo is a lover and not a fighter.
Romeo is intelligent, sensitive, idealistic, and passionate, yet Immature and impulsive. He makes up for it with his loyalty and bravery, as demonstrated when he marries the daughter of his fathers worst enemy, and when he would rather die than live without his beloved.
William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England April 23, 1564. Before his death at age fifty-three, he wrote more than thirty-five plays. From famous ones like "Romeo and Juliet" to "A Midsummers Nights Dream".
William was a man who expressed his love for the arts and words through his plays and poems. As a greatly intelligent and well educated man in Latin and grammar he became a huge remodel for those who want to excel in the arts.
