Heracles is a legend of strength, suffering and redemption. Many people will blame the cruelty of Hera because Hera thought Heracles would become “the next Zeus”. But I think if there was no Hera, no one would know Heracles. In Greek mythologies, heroes were in the possession of extraordinary strength, while suffering from extraordinary pain. Hercules is most admired by twelve tasks that ordinary people can not complete . In those twelve tasks, Heracles suffered a lot . It seems to me those are only physical pains. In contrast. After Heracles killed his wife and sons, that guilt tortured him. The most painful thing is not the physical pain or the harsh environment, but the inner torment.
