In the end it can be argued that Moby, the whale, and the Captain are both defeated, paralleling the story with Nurse Ratched and Mr. McMurphy.
Hence, Odysseus is by definition a good leader. In book one of The Odyssey we are given a brief few paragraphs summarizing the story. Within this it says “... trials and dangers, even so, attended him even in Ithaca, near those he loved.
