  • Code Hero Robert Jordan
    610 words
    The Code Hero Robert Jordan has been defined as a Hemingway code hero. In Hemingway's books, a code hero is usually male, as Hemingway's books seem to have a similarity to Hemingway himself. These code heroes may have been previously wounded or gone through some sort of an ordeal, and so they could have a drinking problem, or a problem sleeping. They seem to be disillusioned, and / or self-oriented, and are not usually loyal to a large cause, but rather a small group of people or a relatively sm...
  • Hemingway Code Heroes
    942 words
    Ernest Hemingway's Code Hero Defined by His Setting The life of Ernest Hemingway exemplifies courage, valor, and fortitude as he recovered from a World War I wound, stalked big game, and pursued other blood sports. In fact, where there was action, there was Hemingway. This influential writer, who uses his simple prose to portray strong, stoic characters, ultimately created his own genre of "good guy" characters-the "Hemingway code hero". These anti-heroes, as they are sometimes called, are a str...

    2,458 words
    Iliad as a Dictate of the Father The Lion Gate is gnarling down at anyone trying to advance past its massive guard. Inside the fortress, mighty shields and glistening swords await the visitor's arrival. Skillfully carved armor decorations proclaim great battles and fierce hunts.

  • Heroes Despite Their Extraneous Characteristics
    931 words
    After critical analysis and in-depth reflection, I have adopted the belief that heroes, despite their extraneous characteristics, have very similar values to the people that follow them. This point of view can best be explained using three key points of focus. These points are as follows: The similarity of a higher guidance in times of need, the similarity of the code of honor that they live by, and the fact that no matter who the hero is, he or she is under pressure to be a successful role mode...
  • Frederic Henry Into A Code Hero
    870 words
    In this novel, A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, Hemingway evolves Frederic Henry into a code hero. His beliefs and values are changed to the characteristics of a code hero by the end of the book with the aid of Catherine Barkley, a code hero herself. A code hero follows existentialism. The code hero also strives to live life to the fullest, and Frederic's behavior seems to show a similar want as the novel concludes. In the beginning of the novel, Frederic Henry's mind is clouded by sensua...

  • Code Of Honor Above Their Own Lives
    519 words
    Often, epic heroes can be characterized the same way. They are portrayed as superhuman beings, possessing strength, physical beauty, and intelligence. These heroes aspired to live by a heroic code that would ensure immortality by keeping their memory alive in the people. Homers The Iliad shows how the heroic code was ingrained in ancient Greek warriors. In many cases, the Greeks put this code of honor above their own lives. During a battle, Glaukos, a Trojan, and Diomedes, an Achaean, encounter ...
  • Code Hero
    864 words
    II. CODE HERO Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid... He is the hero, he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world. -- Raymond Chandler A code hero is defined as a man's man. H...
