An epic is defined as a story that is told in a grand scale and it involves heroes, gods as

well as armies and also brutal forces of nature that is depicted over long character arcs and
sweeping landscapes. The central character in an epic meets with disasters, obstacles triumph
and action therefore creating a difference between epics and other stories. From this definition
therefore, The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Odyssey fit in this category of epic stories since they
explain stories of two men who happen to recognize what exactly means much their lives
therefore they both journey through this quest transforming to different individuals from whence
they begun. The Epic of Gilgamesh is claimed to have two-thirds of him as divine and one-third
as human (Foley, 1991).

The theme of hospitality in The Odyssey presents itself clearly THE Ancient Greece

believed that hospitality was more than just giving the visitors most crumb-free seat on the lkea
couch. They had a major focus therefore for the relationship that existed between the guests and
their host whereby Xenia. Zeus was tasked with this responsibility of the relationship and this
was seen as one of the major laws in the traditional society. As quests were expected to bring
new information and stories from the places they came from, it was the responsibility of the host
to offer them shelter, food as well as financial support if they needed any and it was expected
that they both gave gifts if they could. The reason for treating strangers this way was believed
that the host would at one point in time be in need of such treatment (Still, 2010).

Comedy is important in Date’s Divine comedy as it presents human life essence across all

boundaries of time and geographical location. From the interpretation of this comedy therefore it
describes man in accordance to his advantages and disadvantages in his existence of free will and
that he deserves punishment or a reward based upon justice. The judgment of contemporary
characters based on lyrical poetry and in consultation with classics upon the question



transcending the writers place and time, the comedy qualifies to be of great historical
significance (Frye,2002).

The animals and insects in The Panchatantra are a true revelation of the real human life.

First the lion that sprang back to life is a presentation of four friends who set out on a long
journey and moved from one town to another in search for opportunities to earn money. In the
course of their journey they found a heap of bones that belonged to an unknown animal and one
of them requested that they bring the animal back to life using their own knowledge and the
other three thought it was not a good idea claiming that if they brought back this animal to life he
would turn against them and kill them (Naithani,2004) When the third friend set off putting life
to this dead animal, the forth shouted at him to wait and he climbed up the tree and immediately
the lion came back to life killed all the three learned men as the forth safely walked back to the
village. The moral lesson for this short story is that knowledge that lacks common sense is
always useless.
The second story on the birds and the shivering monkey narrate about monkeys that were
shivering after having been rained on and tried to light some fire to chase away the cold.
However, in their attempt to lit the fire a bird that was on top a tree tried to advice then as well as
discourage their efforts and at long last not heeding one of the monkeys command to go fool
herself, the monkeys became so furious and frustrated with the bird’s advice. One of the
monkeys caught up with the bird smashing him on the ground causing severe injuries. The moral
of this story therefore is; one should never give advice to others unless requested to do it.
The third story on the blind vulture is based on birds that welcomed the vulture to their place and
since he was old, they left him to take care of their kinds as they went to look for food. One day



the clever cat visited and lied to the vulture that he was not carnivorous and the vulture
welcomed him to stay with him. When the vulture fell asleep the cat started feeding on the baby
birds one by one and when the mother birds came and asked the vulture about their babied
whereabouts, the vulture went and stood at the clever cats hideouts and when the birds found
their kids borne remains they claimed...
