Here I have for you, an overview of how smart, stubborn and brave Myles Farworth was in the book Men Of Iron.
In the biggest stadium, the ground shakes as the crowds roar. A young man prepares for his first joust. A joust against a much older, and experienced opponent. Will he bring pride to his country, or will his dreams of being a highly esteemed and well respected knight be shattered to pieces? Here I have for you, an overview of a knight, Myles Farworth and how smart, stubborn and brave this knight was in the book Men Of Iron.
Myles was smart in that he always wanted to make the right choice and to do the right thing no matter what he had to do or what happened. He didn’t always do the right thing and it got him in trouble and even got him hurt sometimes. But I think he was smarter or wiser than the average fellow.
He also was very persistent or stubborn in that he sometimes didn’t do what his elders told him to do. They couldn’t make him do it, so he didn’t. And when he wanted people to do something, he wouldn’t stop unless they did what he wanted. In the book, he was dueling against another guy who he worked and lived with. Myles hurt his opponent quite badly but the opponent didn’t want to give up. Myles didn’t let him walk away unless the opponent surrendered to him. This was a good and bad characteristic of him.
Myles was really brave and wasn’t afraid to except a challenge, even if he new he couldn’t defeat that challenge. There were a times where his friends would have to stop him from doing something that would get him seriously injured, or even killed. It seemed as though he wasn’t afraid of anything. Even though he sometimes really was.
And that was how I think Myles Farworth was smart, persistent, brave and a hero in the book Men Of Iron. In the story, he went through a lot of good times, and hard times. He worked and trained hard to become a knight. All the work paid off and he defeated the older and more experienced knight.
