The inciting incident in “Sweeney Todd” is when Sweeny Todd returns from exile to London and discovers what has happened to his family. Sweeney discovers that his wife has poisoned herself and his daughter is now living with the very judge that exiled him. Sweeney reacts negatively to this discovery and it incites him to seek revenge on anyone who did him wrong. This is the inciting incident because the rest of the play is centered around Sweeney seeking revenge. My favorite moment in “Sweeney Todd” is toward the beginning of the play when Mr. Todd wanders into Ms. Lovett’s meat pie shop.
He explains to Odysseus, “Though you survive alone, bereft of all companions, lost for years, under strange sail you come home, to find your own house filled with trouble: insolent men eating your livestock as they court your lady… you shall make those men atone in blood” (Homer lines 92-97, 1229). Tiresias tells Odysseus his fate and his future about the rest of his journey. The information that Teiresias has provided Odysseus with will help him to prepare for the future and gives him hope to know that he will make it home to his wife, son and kingdom. Tiresias, a blind prophet of the underworld, has an overall positive and helpful effect on Odysseus and the battles he faces on his journey home to Ithaca. In the Odyssey by Homer, Odysseus meets many characters like Polyphemus, Circe and Tiresias.
Revenge is a big theme in the story. After Odysseus blinds Polyphemus, the son of Poseidon, Poseidon is out to get Odysseus. When he is leaving Calypso’s island, Poseidon sends a storm while Odysseus is sailing in hopes to get revenge for what he did to his son. When Odysseus finally returns home after being gone for 20 years, he kills all the suitors who ate his food and invaded his house while he was gone. He was angry and looking to get revenge on them for what they had done and put his wife through.

He then meets a man escorted by men who force him to move aside. In anger he kills them not realizing that one of the men was his father, the king.
Telemachus, Odysseus’ son, tells all the suitor that it is time to quit the games and sit down for supper,”At this reminder/ they all broke up their games, and trailed away/ into the gracious, timbered hall. There, first/ they dropped their cloaks on chairs; then came their ritual:/putting great rams and fat goats to the knife-”(XVII.223-227.). All the suitors that have been living in Odysseus home for many years, all act as if they have made it their new home. Greek hospitality is important because if not, all these men would not feel as if Ithaca was their home, let alone act so natural in someone else's house. Odysseus is disguised as a beggar in his own house, and Penelope, Odysseus’ wife, tells her maids what to do for him, ”Maids, maids, come was him, make a bed for him,/bedstead and colored rugs and coverlets/ to let him lie warm into the gold of Dawn”(XIX.375-376.).

Frightened, Hepzibah relents and goes to fetch Clifford, but discovers that he is absent from his room.
He devoured two of my men on the spot and imprisoned us for future meals. I wanted to take my sword to Polyphemus right then, but I knew that he alone would be strong enough to move the rock that he had placed across the door of his cave. So, I begun to devise a plan. The next day, while he was outside pasturing his sheep, I found a wooden staff in the cave. When he returned, I got him drunk on wine that I brought along from the ship.
