Bac /Mythes et Héros
Message de alizeevdb posté le 09-05-2014 à 15:29:41 (S | E | F)
Bonjour !
Est-ce qu'il serait possible que quelqu'un puisse me corriger mon expression d'anglais s'il vous plaît? C'est pour le Bac et je voudrais vraiment qu'il n'y ait plus aucune faute !
Merci pour vos réponses.

I am going to talk about the notion of myths and heros.
First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion : A myth is a popular story. It originally explained the origins of humanity. It delivers a message about the human condition and also gives elements as to the collective identity of a social group. These myths are updated, reinvented in a way that each civilisation deals with. What's more, a hero is a person admired for his achievements, noble qualities and great courage. He is a legendary character who is ready for extraordinary exploits. Through these myths and heroes, there are values of society. The value or nature of a hero can vary with the country, society or people. We may answer this question : how have myths and heroes changed our lives?
First, I will talk about myths and heroes who have had cultural influence.
Then, we will see heroes who had a political influence.
After that, we will focus on an other type of heroes : imperfect ones.

We are going to start talking about myths and heroes who have had cultural influence. In this category, we can start by talking about Steve Jobs. He became a real hero even a myth at times. He reflected on and emphasised change. Steve Jobs had an ordinary life story but he was a genius. He overcame a lot of hardships, he was as vulnerable as other people, for example he left school, fought to make his firm work, he was fired and had serious health problems. Steve Jobs was an inventor, he improved and advanced the computer and computing. Steve Jobs is considered a hero because to make it to the top he was a hard-worker, career-driven and strong-willed. Today he remains a role model, an example of success.

But, there are also heroes who had a political influence. For example, Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks had very important roles in the history of African-Americans. Martin Luther King was an African American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the American civil rights movement. He wanted equality for all, he fought against discrimination in the realms of suffrage, justice, education, and political representation. It was his wit and dynamic personality that captured his audiences and he made you think about the people he was fighting for. Rosa Parks is also considered as an heroe. In fact, she refused to give up her seat to a white man. She was subsequently arrested and taken to jail for her defiance. She was sick and tired of the segregation laws and decided it was time to change.

Furthermore, we can identify a third category of myths and heroes. Today, people expect a more psychological approach of their favourite hero. They expect that superheroes have imperfections as we have. Spider-Man is one of this new generation of superheroes who are no longer heroic characters with superpowers, but rather flawed regular characters who happen to have superpowers which tend to make them more or less heroic, depending on their personal choice. The drawing made by Straczynski is a good exemple of these imperfect superheroes, since it shows us Spiderman, completely lost, because he couldn't save new yorkers from the terrrorist attacks. This implies that despite his superpowers, Spider Man is far from being invincible. He is just imperfect, like us. An other exemple of imperfect heroes are everyday heroes like firemen, policemen, and soldiers. They are considered heroes by many people because they risk their lives for us. For example, on 09/11 the Twintowers were destroyed by terrorists using two aircrafts. Every fireman, soldier, policeman, and person who had to help many other people during this horrible disaster, is considered a hero. Thanks to their courage, many people have survived this disaster.

To conclude, we can say that myths and heroes have changed our lives. Real such as Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King, firemen and policemen or not real such as Spider-man, they have a capacity to change the minds of many people, to help them and to change the course of history. They do courageous things, they fight for something or they want to serve others. They represent a model, an ideal person. And nobody can deny their comportment : they changed the history, our history.
