Heroes in the Poem Women and Homers Odyssey         A adept is a gallant and strong person, who is also very human.  A hero feels fear and every other emotion that we do.  A true hero is a person who does something bulky and does not expect to be given any thing in return.  A hero does something that effects a large number of  people.  A hero thinks more of others than he or she thinks of him or her self.         The characters in the poem, Women, and The Odyssey are both epic heroes.
