The Odyssey and Speak both have many common archetypes. The characters suffer, and they go through rebirth and they also go through a sense of loss. In Speak Melinda was raped by one of her classmates and was keeping it a secret her entire freshman year, in the Odyssey, Odysseus was trapped on Calypso’s island for years and was forced to lay with Calypso. The characters’ rebirth in The Odyssey and Speak are both very similar; Melinda finally realizes it is okay to tell someone if something like that happens to her, and Odysseus finally makes it home and is able to feel clean again, and to be with his love Penelope.

I reviewed an analytical study that drew conclusions between substance abuse and homelessness. The study focused on if substance abuse occurred prior to or after homelessness.

For those who began abusing substances after becoming homeless, the study calculated how age may have played a factor in their susceptibility to drugs.
