Telemachus a complete opposite of his father lacks certain characteristics that an ideal hero would portray due to the frank manner in which he conveys meaning and the way he perceives things that are spoken. Therefore, this essay aims to discuss the role that conversation plays as a crucial point of development for Telemachus and the influence it has on his development. Through closely analyzing the given extracts from The Odyssey I will explore Telemachus’ naivety as an undeveloped boy when his addressing Mentes, his secret journey to Sparta and Pylos, reuniting and conspiring with his father and his increased boldness in the end, accordingly identifying the emphasis that each of the extracts places on different points of conversation in his development throughout the essay.
