Odyssey Argument Essay In the Odyssey by Homer, Odysseus is married to a beautiful women known as Penelope. When they married each other, they both promised to love one another endlessly and promise to be loyal to each other as long as they live. When Odysseus left for the battle at Troy, Penelope promised she would stay loyal to their marriage, but did that really have any effect on the choices Odysseus chose to make on his journey back home with the many people he encountered? Although Odysseus claims he wants to get home to his beloved wife, Penelope, he continues to contradict himself throughout the story both through his actions by sleeping around, through taking unnecessary trips that stalled his journey back home even more and flirting

In the world today, such care that Antigone portrays for the family is almost
Homer’s the Odyssey is a classic example of how separation can affect a man’s loyalty and how proving oneself can restore reputation. Odysseus keeps his respect and loyalty toward everyone he befriends. Odysseus is a very loyal man and knows how to keep his promises even through his twenty year journey away from home. Odysseus goes off to fight with the Greeks during the trojan war which happens to take nine years, he then spends a year in Greece and it takes him ten years to finally get back home. “As he wept for a way home, since the nymph was no longer pleasing him.
Moreover, sibling love is the fourth type of love shown in the play. Olivia expresses this love very clearly and is rather overstated as well because she wants to keep “A brother’s dead love, fresh “(1.1,31)” till seven years’ heat” (1,1,26 ). She is willing to mourn and bar herself from the rest of the world for seven years purely for a dead brother. Her grief is short, her vow is broken instantly upon meeting Cesario. Another pair of siblings in “Twelfth Night” are Sebastian and Viola who both think that the other is dead but “For saying so, there 's gold” clearly symbolises Viola having hope for Sebastian being alive.
She begs, “How I wish chaste Artemis would give me a death so soft and now I would not go on in my heart, grieving all my life and longing for love of a husband excellent in every virtue.”(Homer. 202-204) Not only was Penelope giving up on life with the absence of Odysseus, her cries and longing for death express her powerlessness and uselessness in society. Without a loving husband in her life, she was nothing but a grieving, unhappy Greek woman who was capable of nothing but weeping. Her strength is nonexistent and she is literally unable to carry on without her husband. The Odyssey, like The Trojan Women, successfully illustrates the life of a Greek woman in ancient times.
Antigone’s actions are motivated by her allegiance to her family, moral conscience, and religion amid Creon’s political injustice and tyranny. Antigone’s actions motivate her to demand Ismene to prove whether she is “a true sister or a traitor to your family” (26-27). Antigone maintains loyalty to her brother despite his actions which threatened Thebes. Her inability to bear the thought of her brother’s corpse being picked apart by animals and not being honored with proper funeral rites forces her to act. Antigone’s fierce allegiance to her family is laid bare as she is willing to sacrifice her life to honor her brother and defy the law in an act that she believes is morally just.
