Odysseus in Homer’s The Odyssey has to go through trials and tribulations and he could not reach home in Ithaca without being so intelligent through the ordeals. The first trial was to get away from Calypso island. The text states that “The nymph Calypso, a powerful goddess—/ And beautiful — was clinging to him / In her caverns and yearned to possess him” (1.17-19).
This is their illusion of life. As long as Matt and Louisa keep it a secret it is immature and naive. When Matt and Louisa go to the circus, under the oak tree, Matt blindfolds Louisa, which is a symbol that they don’t know where they are going. In Plato’s Allegory when the people are chained in the cave, it is the only life they know. This is their illusion of life because they have never known another way.
But as each year has passed by at sea for 20 years, Odysseus overcame his weakness and became stronger. Odysseus came back to Ithaca and the first person he saw was goddess of Athena. She helps disguise Odysseus as a beggar so he would find out what was happening at his house while he was away. He found out what was happening and wanted to punish the suitors since they have been feasting all his food and sleeping with his wife. Later on he revealed himself to Eumaeus the swineherd and his son Telemachus, they helped plot the revenge.
Many of the gods made Aeneas fate to reach Italy difficult. At the beginning Juno tells Aeolus: “Aeolus, by order of the Father of Gods and Men You calm the waves or provoke them with wind.” Aeolus created the winds that affected Aeneas and his crew because they needed to stop at Libya.

Polyphemus threatens Odysseus by saying “‘Come back, Odysseus, and I’ll treat you well, praying the god of earthquake to befriend you-his son I am, for he by his avowal fathered me, and, if he will, he may heal me of this black wound-he and no other of all the happy gods or mortal men’” (160, 564-559). Polyphemus wanted to make a deal with Odysseus; he would have his father make Odysseus’ voyage home smooth, and Polyphemus hoped that Poseidon could heal his eye wound. Polyphemus seemed to doubt that his father would help him with his blindness, which shows that their relationship is not close or strong. After Odysseus threatened to kill Polyphemus and says that Poseidon could not help his blindness, Polyphemus prays to his father, saying “‘O hear me, lord, blue girdler of the islands, if I am thine indeed, and thou art father: grant that Odysseus, raider of cities, never sees his home: Laertes’ son, I mean, who kept his hall on Ithaca.
The underworld in Pullman’s universe contain Harpies, which are creatures taken from Greek myth and will be discussed in the next chapter.

“Pain-more pain than any living woman, my lord, my lion heart, gone, long ago” (74.774-5).

In the scene when Odysseus meets his mother in Hades, she says that she didn’t die of natural causes, but “only my loneliness for you, Odysseus, took my life away” (191.210-1). She also reveals the fate of his father, Laertes, “Your father is country bound and comes to town no more” (191.210-1).
