Myths and heroes : synthèse

Today I am going to deal with the notion of myths and heroes.

First of all, I would give a definition of the key words of this notion.

A myth is a story that may or may not be true. There may not be records or other proof that it existed but at least some parts of a myth may be true. Some myths may have started as “true” stories but people changed them by mistake when retold to other people or to make them more interesting.

A hero is a person that is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.

This year, we studied several documents about myths and heroes, particularly “rags to riches billionaires”, “president Obama’s inaugural address” and we had a short presentation to do about our hero, mine being Captain Chesley Sullenberger.

We have also seen some notions related to myths and heroes, like the notion of a self made man and the notion of the American dream.

I have decided to focus my attention on the modern-day heroes. I will therefore try to answer the following question : what is a modern-day hero and what impact do they have on our lives?”
