Everyone has been angry at someone at some point of time. Being mean doesn't show any respect of yourself or your parents. Why do we(people) be mean? Penelope's suitors was killed because they destroyed Odysseus's house, twisted his maids, and tried to marry his wife. The suitors destroyed Odysseus house when he was trying to find his way back home.
In Homer’s Odyssey, excellence, or arete, in the form of cunning and physical prowess displayed by Penelope and Telemachus, respectively, do not hinder, but aid and benefit the excellence of Odysseus. Telemachus uses his strength, inherited from his father, to help Odysseus in his slaughter of the suitors. Penelope’s sly idea to hold a contest for her admirers allows Odysseus to reveal himself and reclaim his home. In the Books of Samuel, Jonathan and Samuel are often overshadowed by David (despite being excellent on their own) because David rescued Israel from the corrupted king Saul. Samuel’s greatness in prophecy create issues for David when it’s taken away by his death. Jonathan’s death threatens David’s
Considering the fact that Penny and Penelope are from two different Films, They are somewhat alike. In these two films, Penny and penelope did differ in loyalty, parenthood, faith, and the fathers coming back home. Penelope and Penny have some of the same similarities which go along with the husbands in the two films. Penelope is married to a adventurous man and Penny was married to one. It’s pretty insane how no matter how loyal you are to a person, you never know what their thoughts might be and if they keep up their faith through good and hard times.
When a person goes through a trial, he or she faces a challenge and their characters are revealed through their actions as they try to overcome it. In the movie, The Odyssey, the Greek hero Odysseus, king of Ithaca, leaves his queen Penelope on the island and goes off to battle in the Trojan War. Victorious after fighting in ten years of war, Odysseus announces that he conquered Troy alone, without the help of the gods. His hubris angers Poseidon, the god of the sea, who decides to punish him by making his return to Ithaca nearly impossible. This punishment brings forth many trials for Odysseus and his wife, Penelope. Throughout the trials at sea and on unknown islands, Odysseus utilizes his guile, remains loyal at heart to his wife, and displays bravery and courage. However, he is also very arrogant; but later, he develops humility towards the end of his journey. Over at Ithaca, with trials at home, Penelope shows resilience, loyalty to her husband and shrewdness.
One of the greatest epic poems, The Odyssey, written by the Homeric bard, displays obvious issues for Penelope of whether Odysseus, her spouse, is alive. The way she reacts to her lost husband is physiologically explained as high boundary ambiguity. This is scientifically defined as the physical or mental loss of a loved-one leaving a person, or thing, psychologically present. Because Penelope keeps her husband, Odysseus psychologically present by thinking about their past and hoping for his return, she is severely depressed and anxious, and her emotional state causes dysfunction and chaos in her immediate family and in the greater community.
From opinion, the most memorable moment of The Odyssey by Homer is when Odysseus and his faithful men execute the daring escape from Polyphemus the Cyclops, son of Poseidon the Earthshaker. In this section of the epic, Odysseus presents his cunning and daring character, showing ingenuity and athleticism as well. The thought put into the plan shows the intelligence Odysseus holds, for no man could ever have in mind such a brilliant plan. Great athleticism is shown through the red hot staff, as he and his comrades pick up the heavy object and drive it into the single eye of the Cyclops. “They lifted up
Penelope was able to put off the wooers for so many years because she was just like her husband. She was a liar, crafty, and clever. Penelope always said that she would pick one of the suitors after she was finished weaving, but instead of actually weaving she would show her doing it during the day and then at night she would pull the thread out. She did this every night for three years until she got caught and had no more excuses. She did this every day hoping that odysseus would come
Good morning Ms. Rummel, my sole purpose today is to convince you of Penelope’s complete innocence. In the book the Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood, the tale of the Odyssey was retold through the eyes of Penelope, Odysseus’s wife. Towards the end of the book, when Odysseus returns to his home, Ithaca, he orders for Penelope’s twelve handmaidens to be hung, as a punishment for sleeping with the suitors during the twenty years when he was away. Many people believe that Penelope caused the murder of the twelve maids; however, if you pay close attention to the book and its subtext, there are many other people besides Penelope that have a larger claim to the responsibility of the maids’ murder. Through thoroughly analyzed evidence from the book itself,
Loyalty is the glue that holds marriages or friendships together. Without loyalty there would be no trust in one another, and all of these relationships would be broken. Loyalty is quite simple to fulfill, but at times can be even easier to fail. Specifically, in marriages, loyalty is not just remaining married to one’s spouse, but is also staying true to all the promises one made, and putting oneself before the other. Loyalty plays a key role in Odysseus’ and Penelope’s marriage in the epic poem “The Odyssey” by Homer, translated by Robert Fagles, but it is debatable if Odysseus is truly loyal to his selfless wife, Penelope. In the epic poem, the main character Odysseus leaves behind his loving family to battle in the Trojan war. After his
Penelope, daughter of Icarius, is a rather unusual considering what type of character she is. While she has been shown as a domestic woman in the earlier books, Penelope is oftentimes described as cunning or wise. Both Odysseus and Penelope display superior amounts of intelligence compared to many of the other characters within the Odyssey. Just as Odysseus can lie about himself to the people closest to him, Penelope, too, can also disguise her own emotions. While she obviously does this to her suitors, Penelope may have also done the same to Odysseus. Although Odysseus finally confirms her suspicions with the wedding bed, Penelope may have figured out who he was in disguise as earlier as their first
Penelope hints that she knows that Odysseus is present when he responds to her dream of the death of the geese. Penelope’s knowledge of Odysseus’ presence greatly affects the understanding of her character is she seems very crafty and strategic and an integral role in the slaughter of the suitors. Penelope’s

Seven years stuck on this island, everyday counting the days planning, planning to escape from this miserable place and continue my journey to get home and see my beautiful wife Penelope, Oh Penelope how I miss you. All my men dead, dead because of me. Calypso offering me immortality to stay with her and become her husband. Tempting offer it is but I can not accept it as I am already married to Penelope and I am loyal to her. Sadly if if I did say to to her offer I doubt she would set me free. Only the mighty Zeus may know what she’d do to me. He may lose interest in me and kill me. Who knows how that haul beast would try to kill me. Would she make it quick or would she delay it and make me suffer to make up for me rejecting her. Never I could not let that happen I have to get to Ithaca to see my wife, son, and kingdom. I will have to be smart about it. It will have to be a well thought out plan if I wish to ever escape this terrible island and see the beautiful shores of Ithaca again.
Myrsiadesr compares Penelope’s early recognition in book 19 to a game that only she and Odysseus are playing. Throughout this game only Penelope is aware of it, so she is able to make all of the rules. Odysseus is not aware that his wife recognizes him, before he relieves his identity to her. She is signifying throughout this entire game that she is the one in power. Which is why even after his identity is relieved she continues to test her husband to indicate she is the one in power. Myrsiadesr believes that Vlahos made many valid points in his journal about early recognition. However Myrsiadesr does not believe that the recognition occurs until book 19, and this is where the game between husband and wife begins. The game does not end until
It was hard to Penelope to recognize her husband Odysseus when they were talking to each other’s in book 19. One of the biggest reasons that made her certain that her husband is died, is that he left for many years, and nobody told her truth about his location or about what is he doing. After she heard what the stranger have of stories about her husband, she told him with a warm heart about her dream. Penelope said that she saw an eagle in her dream came and killed all the suiters, and speaks to her with a human voice, and told her that he is her husband. She saw many other things in her dream beside the eagle, and Odysseus starts to tell her what does it mean to have a dream like this. After that, she decided that she will marry a man who is as smart as her husband, and she decide to make archery contest between suiters and the one who shoot the arrow through the twelve axes, he will be her new husband and take her away from the palace that she came to as a bride. Odysseus encouraged her not to delay the archery contest, and
