    Troy and the Trojan War Odyssey writing assignment due December 16 When I introduced you to the Odyssey, I spoke about some of its themes, such as: Revenge Intellect/cleverness over strength Respect for the gods Pride/hubris Hospitality (xenia) and the abuse of it Kleos Weaving Then I emphasized two very important themes that Homer himself weaves throughout the entire story: 1. The nature of mortal life: why would any man choose to be mortal? What is it about being human that makes up for the infinite suffering that comes with death? 2. The restoration of order after war: what does it means to be civilized (as opposed to wild or uncivilized)? How would Homer answer these questions? Although I’m not a page-counter, complete and thorough answers to these

    Troy and the Trojan War
    Odyssey writing assignment due December 16
    When I introduced you to the Odyssey, I spoke about some of its themes, such as:
    Revenge
    Intellect/cleverness over strength
    Respect for the gods
    Pride/hubris
    Hospitality (xenia) and the abuse of it
    Kleos
    Weaving
    Then I emphasized two very important themes that Homer himself weaves throughout
    the entire story:
    1. The nature of mortal life: why would any man choose to be mortal? What is it
    about being human that makes up for the infinite suffering that comes with
    death?
    2. The restoration of order after war: what does it means to be civilized (as opposed
    to wild or uncivilized)?
    How would Homer answer these questions? Although I’m not a page-counter, complete
    and thorough answers to these questions would be *at least* two double spaced pages
    each.
    Don’t do any outside research for this writing assignment. Use the Odyssey, your class
    notes, and your own brain. Support your answer to each question with at least 3
    quotations from your Odyssey translation (so that will be a minimum of 6 quotations
    total). You might or might not weave in some of the themes listed at the top of this
    assignment. Base your answers only on your reading assignments, and not any of the
    books that we didn’t read for class. Do not cut and paste from class notes. Use your
    own ideas and your own words. Think about why these questions are so important, to
    anyone, from any culture, at any time in history.
    The rest is up to you. Wow me. And submit your assignment via Canvas.
    Due (no exceptions): December 16 before midnight
