Forum 7 (Heroines) – Forum 7 Discussion 20- ThursdayDec 3 at 9:14am
Charilla is a renowned heroine of the Greek community. She was a young girl whose parents had
been diseased by the time a great famine followed by drought struck their land and oppressed the
Delphians. But when Charilla, an orphaned girl and was then a small child, approached him, the
king stuck her with his sandal and then cast the sandal in her face. Even though Charilla came
from a low-income family and did not have anyone to take care of her, she had a sense of
dignity. Thus she stepped aside, and feeling offended, she took off her girdle and hanged herself.
Surprisingly, the famine increased in the land, and the diseases compounded to the already worse
situation. To solve this mystery, the king decided to consult a prophetic priestess. She gave an
oracle to the king and advised him to appease Charilla, the young girl he had despised in front of
everyone, compelling her to commit suicide. When he discovered with some difficulty that
Charilla was the name of the child he had struck, he performed a certain ritual combined with
purification to appeasing Charilla. Even in modern-day Greece, the same rite continues to be
performed after every eight years. During this ceremony, the king sits in state and offers a
portion of barley-meal and legumes to everyone, be it an alien or citizen, without any form of
discrimination. After that, a doll-like image of Charilla is brought before the crowd. After all the
people have received their portions of barley and legumes, the king strikes Charilla’s image with
his sandal. Then, the Thyiads picks up the image and bears it to a specific place, which is filled
with chasms. They tie a rope around the neck of this doll and bury it in the same spot where they
buried Charilla after she had ended her life (499).
This incident made Charilla to be perceived as a heroine in the entire Greek community and
beyond, and her legacy reigns even today. Charilla’s example reflects what we know about the
five traits of heroines in the Greek world in that she was of the feminine gender; she was
perceived as a heroine and died just like other heroines in the Greek community. She was a
human being who lived among the humans before her death. Her death is believed to have
created a strong connection between her and the gods. This explains the reason why famine
became persistent in the land after she hanged herself. Charilla died a prematurely. After the king
struck her with a sandal, she decided to end her life when she was only a small girl. This reflects
an act of violence that was directed against the self. After her death, Greek people began
gathering by her graveside and performing rituals to appease her spirit to subside famine. She
also obtained a form of immortality through song and cult (500). Charilla was celebrated as a
heroine at the cult shrine. Finally, Charilla performed an extraordinary deed that was or was not
moral. It is rare for a child to commit suicide because she has been offended. This makes
Charilla’s actions extraordinary.

I agree with you that this girl has fulfilled all the five traits of a Greek heroine. Making of a
Heroin is both a mythical and historical tale that shows the characteristics of the Greeks Heroine.
The story gives the funny traits of the heroine, which today appears largely derisory. The story
could teach us the diversity of women’s lives in Greeks history shaped by their place, class, and
sexual orientation. A woman who is idealized or admired because of her noble qualities,
fabulous achievements, or great courage is a heroine. However, in Greek, the women who had
died, especially prematurely or mysteriously, who did moral or immoral extraordinary deeds,
were worshiped at the gravesite since they were considered heroine and believed they obtained a
form of immortality. Charilla, a girl who was hit with a sandal and committed suicide, led to a
ritual cult practice in Delhi since she fit the heroine’s five traits. The girl must have been sad
about being hit, and her young age increased her anger. Such a thing could happen to any shorttempered girl her age. Charilla is an example; if the situation is right, we must be careful when
confronting young girls.

Sarah Iles Johnston’s article portrays deploying symbolic narratives to define a tradition’s origin
associated with significant beliefs. It is a disposition that can get deployed in explaining the
encounter of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when Harry Potter learns of the escaped
prisoner, Sirius Black, who killed his parents. The vowing to kill him stem from the inclination
pointed out in the Muggle News showing that Sirius betrayed his parents. Contrary to initial
thoughts, Johnston’s defining mythology stem from where Potter travels back in time close to the
end of the film to save Sirius from the Dementors. The story considers various inclinations into
the illusion that portrays the stance of what a myth inclines to constitute. The observation of
Sarah Iles Johnston gets to apply in contemporary society in an explicit adventure to indicate the
origin of the belief and various fundamentals that define the existence of things and man
(Chapter 10, n.d). Typically, the storytelling prowess of Sarah Iles Johnstone is in a world of its
own; everything gets conclusively addressed where you would want more of such creations.
The portrayal of “How Myth and Stories Help to Create and Sustain Belief” is an encompassing
that constitute the disposition of vivid narration that gets incorporated in the debut made in
Greek and Roman myths through the film consisting of Harry Potter. Technically, it is an
episode in a passage that projects to fit in the long series of Harry Potter films. Sarah Iles
Johnston points out the essence of redefining hidden things in the article, which helps redefine
the conceptualization of significant entities that enable the work to portray its true message. The
stance of sustaining beliefs in the gods and heroes is a measure that gets seen in the acting with
the presentation of magic as the basis of Greek religion. The measure to meet two media in a
single entity gets defined as plurimediality. It is a projection that constitutes various myths, as
indicated in our provided example for the inclination of achieving coherency. The use of the
word myth to define various underpinnings help to explain the context of deixis. It is a phrase
that represents various analogies concerning heroes, gods, tradition, and beliefs, among others.

I grew up in the age of Harry Potter. I remember reading the books and haveing a picture from in
my mind. The characters and my class grew together. When the final part came out ,we were
seniors in high school finishing the journey together. I think to achieve that level of storytelling
is difficult and is something that only comes around so often.

The most impressive thing about hero cult in antiquity is the worshipping of heroes in an isolated
open-air space that was identified as sacred. This practice implies existing religion, identity, and
belief. The reason is that the worshipping was unique and had spiritual-associated things such as
a small temple and cult statue. The hero cult’s religion’s relevance goes beyond the questions that
may emerge concerning instability within rigidity. For instance, the separation of worshipping
from other places depicts instability and rigidity because heroes were only responsible for
administering a temple (Maurizio 443). As a result, the rigidity forms a clear ground for “life
Furthermore, there is an existing connection of people to death spirits through “belief.”
For instance, believing in shrines as the place of worship to connect the living to non-living hero
(Maurizio 440). This connection served the purpose of making people remember the death of a
hero. In a deep understanding, the meaning of this religion-based connection draws on the
spiritual discussions to present a view of “religion and identity,” not from the perspective of
fixed cognitive stances, but the thought of “being in the world” and “practices” that are not
repetitive, rather a cultural view and practice which mutually make each other.

I have to disagree. Members of the military who are killed are still remembered in lasting ways.
Examples are scholarships in their names, or having a day like Chris Kyle day, or The Murphy
run. Heros in Greek myth are remembered through stories. Each repectfully died before their
time. And are honored for their actions. It just has evolved.
Forum 4 (Coco and the Underworld) – Forum 4 Discussion 22

In Coco, young Miguel aspires to become a legendary musician despite his family forbidding
music. Miguel breaks into Ernesto’s mausoleum and steals his guitar to participate in a music
competition, unleashing a curse. Miguel becomes invisible and appears in the land of the dead.
Miguel must obtain a blessing from his family members to return the land of the living and also
put up their photo to cross over, Ernesto grants him the blessing. The photos on the altar are
believed to help the living meet with their departed loved ones through visits during the Día de
Los Muertos day. Crossing to the land of the dead is easier in the Greek underworld in Odyssey
because they only have to cross a river and only the guard grants permission of passage and cross
them over.
In Coco, one can happily live in the land of the dead if the family remembers a person regardless
of their sins and visit the land of the living once in a while. In case, the person is forgotten by
family members one disappears from the underworld. This is different from the Greek’s where
there is reward and punishment in the lands dependent on the sins of an individual. The Greek
underworld upholds a culture whereby the good and heroes are rewarded and the bad people
punished. In the Coco movie, the dead is peaceful and forgiving and also reminds about the need
to remember departed loved ones and honor their memories.

I like how the two underworlds are so different. The Odyssey seems to have a much darker tone
to it. Reward or Punishment. Wile Cocos is much lighter and still have a sense of what makes a
human “human”.
Participation Self-Assessment
One component of your grade is class participation. You will be asked to prepare
a self-evaluation of your participation twice during the semester:
You must participate twice for every topic discussion (one post and one
What should be included in the self-assessment?
(1) MAKE A NUMBERED LIST of every instance of where you have contributed
meaningfully to the discussion of the material.
After noting the time and location of your posts, please go ahead and INCLUDE
YOUR ACTUAL POSTS. I recommend that you keep track of how you’ve
participated as you go. This should make the actual process of self-assessment
(2) After reading the rubric, GIVE YOURSELF A NUMBER GRADE FOR EACH
FORUM. I would recommend using a table like the ones below and assigning the
score you deem appropriate for each forum module, justifying the assessment in
the criteria section. If you reference a post, please be sure to cite the numbered
example. You only need ONE assessment table for each of the two
assessment periods.
How will my assessment be evaluated?
I will check the accuracy of your self-evaluation and, where your assessment
differs from my own, I will give you feedback so that you will know how to
improve in the future. My grade will be the final grade, but giving yourself a
grade and justifying it is designed to encourage the self-monitoring skills that are
essential to academic success. I will expect to see evidence of growth between
the first self-evaluation and the final.
Were contributions of sufficient length to clearly
communicate the point/s you were trying to make but not
excessively long? This is somewhat subjective, but it would
be hard to contribute meaningfully in one sentence and
writing more than a few paragraphs does a disservice to
your peers and the professor, since everyone is expected to
read all posts.
How often did you participate? Did you participate twice for
every topic discussion (one post and one response).
Were your Forum responses posted at 11:59pm on the due
date? At least some posts should be significantly before. If
everyone’s response is at the last minute, the discussion is
likely to be shallow.
Was respect shown to your classmates? Did you follow
appropriate “netiquette”?
Did your contributions show evidence of understanding of
course content? Were they accurate? Were they
understandable? Were they well-formed (proper grammar
and spelling)?
Were your contributions unique? Did they simply repeat
what was said before by the teacher or your peers or did
they contribute something new and valuable to the
developed by Robert Fentress (rfentres@vt.edu)
