Adventure

Helen Keller stated that “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Typically we associate adventure with something involving risk which can result in positive energy such as excitement and adrenaline, or negative energy such as fear and panic. The first real recorded adventure can be traced back to Homer’s which has had profound effects on all facets of pop culture. Many video games follow the same basic plot line; hero returns from war, faces perilous travels and task, fights in his own house/fatherland so he can have his home back. A 2000 movie, “o brother where art thou” starring George Clooney as Ulysses McGill is a loose interpretation of the original epic but set in 1937 rural Mississippi. Tying everything in English together, parallel to the first story line is the second story line of two governors running races against each other, very similar to all the kings men.

  1. 150 words? That’s it?
    Tim, you need to elaborate on this post. Follow ONE of your great ideas…the Odyssey will do. Why is this epic poem referenced with adventure so many times? If you are using the film to deconstruct an idea, analyze the clip…need to do more than paste a video.
