The fact that the men do not even pause to listen and are too busy sacking the city shows that Odysseus does not have control over them, even as their leader. Another example of Odysseus’ lack of leadership in the book is when Odysseus does not tell his men about the bag of winds and thinks, “A fatal plan, but it won my shipmates over.They loosed the sack and all the winds burst out and a sudden squall struck and swept us back to sea…”(p.157) Odysseus keeps the fact that he has the key to the safe journey home in a bag. Odysseus does not trust his men and his men do not trust him back, so the men betray Odysseus and open the bag. Even with the big help from King Aeolus, Odysseus does not tell his men, showing distrust between both parties. The leader of men does not have to question his authority over his men, but

In Act 3 Scene 4, Hamlet reveals Claudius’ involvement in his father’s death to his mother, but she thinks Hamlet has turned into a madman.
However, he was pulled of by one of his friends, which in the novella is his friend Gordie, that makes him very angry and causes a conflict between the two. Gordie justified his actions based on the fact that the driver could’ve reported about them to police, saying “Teddy, you dodge anything after we see what we are going to see, but until then no one is supposed to see us” (334).
