How do others define this concept? How do you define it? Think about some of the characters in the selections such as;The Usual Story by Fred Setterberg and A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift do they fit a definition of “hero”? Think about real people you have encountered in your life; do any of them fit the definition? How does a hero relate to his or her society?
