“You cannot be my father Odysseus! Meddling spirits conceived this trick to twist the knife in me!” (295). Clearly, his time spent among the suitors had influenced him to distrust the words of others. When Odysseus proves that he is his father, they reunite and weep until sundown. Normally, it is peculiar to immediately trust a person after a few sentences of proof, much less share a plan together.
Edward represents God as he contradicts the sins of the town and acts as a creator that works to better the residents’ lives. The town is full of residents who in some way are all greatly flawed. These flaws range from the housewives’ sexualization of men to Esmeralda’s obsession with religion and the devil to Kim’s unhappy and somewhat abusive relationship with her boyfriend.

You then start seeing Hollings traits of paranoia about Mrs. Baker and her assassination plot. You also see Holling dissatisfaction with his life when he feels like he needs to have guts against Doug Switetick’s brother who was charging towards him. You could also call Holling immature due to the fact that he insults Meryl Lee for no reason. The story continues and some small events happen but then occasionally big events happen. My first big event would be when he has to clean the chalk boards and gets a cream puff out of it.
During the journey, he time and time again falls prey to selfish human desires, such as greed and pride, leading to further hardships. Although Odysseus’s story is a common archetype, he fails to meet the qualities of a hero compared to Narayanan Krishnan, a modern hero. Odysseus often was not satisfied with what he had already received and pushed for more. Such a case was seen when he visited the cyclops’s island. After having gone in the cave and finding the cyclops’s abode, he was interested in its inhabitants despite his men suggesting to simply take the sheep and cheese back to the boat and leave.
