When he argues with Albert, he says :” The question, therefore, is, not whether a man is strong or weak, but whether he is able to endure the measure of his sufferings. The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever."
Now, Odysseus will be punished for what he has done as the cyclops asks for Odysseus to "come home late... A broken man. " If he had just left without a huge commotion.

Often the question asked is "how do you love someone when you cant even love yourself" The man is constantly depressed but the question asked is completely discredited in this sonnet. This man may be one of the most depressing bokes ever, but when he sees his Jane Doe his everlasting despair disipates.
