Nancy Crawley Abstract: In literature all around the world, women play a role, whether it is a major or minor one. A woman can be seen as a heroine, which is a woman that is a hero in a piece of literature. A hero is defined as someone who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage and the will for self sacrifice —that is, heroism—for some greater good of all humanity (Wikipedia). Some may agree that in the story Medea, Medea is in fact a hero. Many would argue against this. Medea by far is not a hero and does nothing but cause drama and hurts others. A true hero would never act in the manner that Medea does. Medea is in fact the opposite of a hero; because she is so focused on revenge, she ends up ruining many lives including her own. Federici-Nebbiosi, Susanna. “Earth, Speak to Me, Grass, Speak to Me!” Trauma, Tragedy, and the Crash Between Cultures in Medea.” Psychoanalytic Dialogues 16.4(2006): 465-480. Academic Search Premier. EBSCO. Web. 4. Nov. 2010.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
