Orel Fligelman Professor Coon First Essay 10/4/11 1) The Story of Agamemnon and the Odyssey The story of Agamemnon’s murder and his son’s subsequent revenge is repeated time and again throughout the Odyssey. This repetition serves several functions. It serves as a contrast between the tragedy of Agamemnon and the triumph of Odysseus. The audience of Homer was fond of such happy endings, and so the frequent mention of this sad story serves to enhance the happy ending of Odysseus’ triumph. Moreover, the contrast of Odysseus’s story with Agamemnon’s gives the reader insight into the character traits of each, exposing their strengths as well as flaws.
It can make people reach out to others and cling on to them, or make them obsessed with those who are kind to them. Calypso is a goddess who is exiled on the island, Ogygia, and later Odysseus, the man she falls in love with and a war hero, washes up on her island. She tries to tempt him by telling him he will receive immortality if he stays on the island and leaves his wife, Penelope, and son, Telemachus. However, Hermes is sent by Zeus to inform Calypso of the repercussions if she continues to tempt and keep him on her island. Calypso is a troubled and obsessive temptress.
Even though Aereceaus loved his daughter, Aereceaus sacrificed his daughter, Danai, and grandson, Perseus to the sea because he wanted to follow the laws of Zeus by not letting any women live with children out of wedlock. Mortals also constructed exquisite temples and statues as tribute to the deities. Aereceaus, king of Argos, built a statue of Zeus overlooking his city. Cassiopeia also erected a picturesque statue of Thetis in a temple. Humans were capable of traveling to the other "worlds" while alive.
Though they seem to have a perfect life, the gods require humans to express their majesty. The birth of Apollo brings out various conflicts and resolutions in the relationship between the gods and humans and amongst the gods, which affects the order of the universe. This conflict between gods and men is made apparent with the birth of Apollo. This is shown in the poem when Leto has trouble finding a place to give birth to Apollo. Leto who is one of Zeus’ wives is the mother of the great god.
Major as well as minor aspects are evidently removed or altered, and can be seen when comparing the poem to the film. Though the Iliad and Troy share differences, both works are fuelled by jealousy, greed, and pride. When comparing the Iliad to Troy, one of the most influential aspects of the poem is absent in the movie, the gods. The divine intervention between the gods and goddesses and the characters in the Iliad plays a significant role in the understanding of the work. The film does, however, convince the audience that the characters are firm believers in the gods.
In many myths involving Aphrodite, it is said that she was vain, ill-tempered and easily offended. She is one of the few Greek gods to be married, but was frequently unfaithful to her husband, Hephaestus. Aphrodite preferred Ares, Adonis, Anchises and more. Even though she was unfaithful to her husband, she was protective of her son, Aeneas. During the Trojan War, Aeneas was hurt and Aphrodite came to help him.
A great example of theme in a story is in Homer's Odyssey. Homer uses themes by not telling you what they are, but by showing you or leaving hints. Some themes from The Odyssey are the power of the gods, how Odysseus falls into temptation and how Greek hospitality is shown. The first theme mentioned in The Odyssey is the power of the gods. The gods exercise absolute power over mortal actions in The Odyssey.
In the odyssey, the gods are vital within the structure of the story. Their role determines the events within the odyssey and how exciting they are. Though they are success in making the story interesting, so may feel that the repetitive interference of the gods devalues both Odysseus and the plot. In book five of the odyssey, it begins with the council of the gods deciding on Odysseus’s fate. Athena speaks to her father Zeus of Odysseus’s constant misfortune.
