The Wounded Hero

Non-fatal Injury in Homer's Iliad

View: 953

This book is an investigation of non-fatal injury and bloodspill in Homer's Iliad and demonstrates the crucial significance of these motifs in the epic. They are shown to be fundamental to defining heroic status and a powerful means for developing the narrative and thematic structures of the poem. The study offers a nuanced definition of the nature of mortality and immortality and shows how the motifs of injury and bloodspill explicate the plot of the poem and its ethical values. This work is the first to examine these motifs in a systematic and comprehensive investigation. Focusing exclusively on the Iliad, the book sheds new light on ideals of heroic conduct.

She’s the key to his heart, but the secret she's kept may destroy his soul. Colton Cavanaugh spent years in the military molding himself into someone better. After a serious accident, his memories and his leg have vanished—along with his career... And the best friend who owned his heart since they met? She’s run off and eloped. With nothing left to live for, Colton gives up, blocking everyone out. Tough as nails Keely Adair has just lost the one person she always counted on and her job to boot. Offered a position as Colton’s physical therapist, Keely has little choice other than returning to Kingsbrier, a place she hoped to forget. It’s apparent right away Keely won’t put up with Colton’s nasty attitude. Though, Keely is sure he wishes she used the same regimented tactics on her wild daughter. When Colton puts his foot down about the kid’s out-of-control behavior, the three turn into something more. A struggling single mom is the last woman the rest of the quintuplets expected to heal a loner’s soul and rebuild their confidence. Except as Keely unlocks Colton’s heart, and they begin building the kind of family both were certain they’d lost out on forever, the secret Keely’s kept from her child may destroy it all. The unexpected conclusion to the Kingsbrier Quintuplets. ** This book deals with themes that include PTSD and darker emotional scenarios.

This is the color picture version of the Wounded Hero Voyage I: Smallest Power Boat to Cross the Atlantic A True Life Adventure Against all odds two brothers, Ralph and Bob Brown, attempt to cross the North Atlantic Ocean unescorted in the smallest powerboat ever, a twenty one foot open fishing boat (without a cabin or keel), with less than a foot of free board. It is a low budget grueling voyage without the benefit of even enough money to buy insulated boots, waterproof gloves, or full body dry-suits. They left without enough money to even pay for the gas required to make the trip, let alone get back from Europe when and if they got there. They make city stops often during the day to attempt to find more sponsorship forcing them to travel often at night when it would be more dangerous and cold. They battle huge waves from two hurricanes, almost run out of fuel, and freeze as they pass by hundreds of icebergs and see thousands. The water temperature drops to 35 degrees near Greenland. During book I, the wind gets as high as 35 mph and when traveling over 35 degree water, makes for a bone chilling ride. In Book 2, the winds reach as high as 65 mph where even the chop is higher than the sides of the boat. Their voyage was and is dedicated to promoting Wounded Hero Foundations. The major sponsor is "I Am Second," which means "God is first." Part I is from Florida to Greenland. The voyage takes them along the East Coast of the United States and then a 450-mile crossing to Canada, most coastline and cities before making the 625-mile leap to Greenland for a total of over 4,000 miles in only the first book. 288 pages and 88 pictures with maps

The Wounded Storyteller

Body, Illness, and Ethics

In At the Will of the Body, Arthur Frank told the story of his own illnesses, heart attack and cancer. That book ended by describing the existence of a "remission society," whose members all live with some form of illness or disability. The Wounded Storyteller is their collective portrait. Ill people are more than victims of disease or patients of medicine; they are wounded storytellers. People tell stories to make sense of their suffering; when they turn their diseases into stories, they find healing. Drawing on the work of authors such as Oliver Sacks, Anatole Broyard, Norman Cousins, and Audre Lorde, as well as from people he met during the years he spent among different illness groups, Frank recounts a stirring collection of illness stories, ranging from the well-known—Gilda Radner's battle with ovarian cancer—to the private testimonials of people with cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, and disabilties. Their stories are more than accounts of personal suffering: they abound with moral choices and point to a social ethic. Frank identifies three basic narratives of illness in restitution, chaos, and quest. Restitution narratives anticipate getting well again and give prominence to the technology of cure. In chaos narratives, illness seems to stretch on forever, with no respite or redeeming insights. Quest narratives are about finding that insight as illness is transformed into a means for the ill person to become someone new.

“As a pediatrician, I know kids need help processing the changes that come when a parent has an injury or illness. Hero at Home is a heartfelt, one-of-a-kind book that simply and beautifully explains to children the life of our wounded heroes and their families. This book is the perfect start to a conversation we all need to have about our heroes that return home with new challenges in daily life” (Mark S. Reynolds, MD). “In Hero at Home, Sarah Verardo teaches Americans of every age how to view the wounds of our veterans with understanding and compassion. Through a sweet and patriotic tale, Sarah reminds our nation of the pride and respect we owe those who served and their loved ones. As a devoted wife and caregiver to Mike, doting mother to three beautiful young girls, and committed veteran and caregiver advocate, there is no one more qualified than Sarah to write this story. I encourage every family and classroom in America to read Hero at Home and discuss the timeless American values it teaches us” (Elizabeth Dole, US senator).
