People who have read the Odyssey…which essay topic should i choose for my essay? and why?





1. "Odysseus may have all the major qualities that one might associate with a great leader, but after all, his story in the Odyssey is a myth. We can’t expect to find all these qualities in real life – not all in the same person, anyway – if only because some of them (for instance, cunning and courage) contradict one another." True? 2. "From Homer’s point of view, Odysseus is a hero and the Kyklops is a villain. But if Homer hadn’t been the victim of so many ancient Greek cultural assumptions, he would have seen that Odysseus was the one at fault." True?thank you soo much!

This is easier. Say false (because humans have all emotions and qualities inside of them, but it depends on the situation as to which qualities show)

    1. i agree, only because Homer and many other writers of that time portrayed most every mythological creature as evil, and the human as a cunning hero who is favored by most people.
