When Odysseus left for Troy during the Trojan war, he left his whole life behind. He left behind his very young son, Telemachus, and his wife, Penelope. After the war, Odysseus started his journey back. Odysseus’ whole journey home was prompted by the fact that he wants to get home to his family and kingdom in Ithaca. Odysseus made it through the many trials and tribulations he was faced with to see his family.
Odysseus did not want to go war because his son, Telemachus, was just born but he went anyways. Odysseus’s abyss occurred when he sees the prophecy and saw that his mom died and everyone was still grieving.

On his expedition of digging up buried bodies, he seeked out help from Gus, a silly farmer, but once Gus had been admitted to a home due to his old age, “Gein became desperate for fresh trophies”, which is what led him to murder the two women. It was after the death of his mother, that Gein began creating a “woman suit”, which he would wear, because he longed to become a woman. Authorities also found out that Ed engaged in necrophilia with bodies he dug up, though he denied it, claiming the corpses “smelled too bad”. One of the police who had questioned Gein, Art Schley, was found guilty of having physically assaulted Ed, by “banging Gein’s head and face into a brick wall.” At the time Gein did not have to attend his trial because of the state of his mental stability, in total he was sent to two mental institutions, one of which eventually became a prison. In 1968, once Gein was finally stable enough to attend trial, he was declared not guilty by reason of insanity.
