“Without you, I am torn like a sail in a storm,” insists We the Kings in their song, “Sad Song”. Romeo is a Montague, Juliet is a Capulet, their families are enemies, but this won’t stop them from being with each other. During this time and age for women, their father’s would choose their husband for them, and they have to obey their command. However, Juliet doesn’t obey her father, and falls in love with a man named Romeo. Being separated for Romeo and Juliet only makes their connection fow stronger.
Overall, Romeo and Juliet got married urgently because they had feelings of true love towards each other. A final reason that the feelings that Romeo and Juliet had for each other were/were not feelings of true love is They met with each other almost all the time. In Act 2, scene 4, Romeo says, “Tell her to devise a plan to get out of her house and come to confession at the abbey this afternoon.”
In a light sleep, Odysseus reveals to the reader he knows the secret Penelope holds, He felt in his heart she knew him already And was standing beside his head. (20.101-102) Up to this point in the epic, the idea that Penelope knows Odysseus’ identity has only been interpreted. Odysseus’ strong feelings are important because he is extremely intelligent. Odysseus’ wit makes it likely his feeling is more than a just a feeling, but he has reasons to believe that his wife is aware of his identity.
They had been into some serious lovemaking but both had decided to wait to be married before consummating their relationship. He thought a minute and said, “If you are sure. I don’t think I can wait any longer to love you totally.” Carolyn hugged Bill and he could tell she was very happy with his decision. “Let’s make it special by going somewhere out of town and staying somewhere we have always wanted to stay,” Carolyn said.
Even though Odysseus is quite the leader, sometimes he needs help from his female peers in order to overcome a threatened homelife and the long journey home. Athena and Circe guide and fight for not only Odysseus' life but also his happiness. Athena helps Odysseus find his son, with whom he kills the suitors and reestablishes his place as king of Ithaca. Circe is Odysseus' secret weapon in the fact that she tells him about the merciless miscreant that he will encounter on his expedition like the sirens, Scylla and Charybdis. Athena and Circe are two of the many people in the Odyssey that make it possible for Odysseus to return to Ithaca.
A significant virtue Homer’s story covers is the importance of loyalty. The most notable exudation of loyalty is when Odysseus’ wife, Penelope, waits faithfully for ten years for the return of her husband. While many others tell her that Odysseus was most likely dead and that she should move on, she ignores them and never loses hope. She also concocts a clever scheme so she does not have to remarry. Saying that she would remarry once she finishes making a burial shroud for her late father-in-law, Laёrtês, she undoes the stitches every night so she would never finish, hence never remarry.
Astraea soon learns that she is with child and that is a really big problem because she is a virgin goddess and is now no longer virgin. She confines in her father Zeus as to what she should do. zeus takes pity on her and blesses the baby saying that he will be one of the greatest hero to walk and everyone will know
In the book, Odyssey by Homer, Ulysses has a struggling voyage home to Ithaca. Ulysses is a roman hero that couldn’t make it home after the Trojan War. After the war, trying to find his way home, he stumbled upon Ogygia, which lead to him being captured by a goddess named Calypso. Calypso fell madly in love with Ulysses and wouldn’t let him leave her land for seven years. Back at Ulysses home, Ithaca, a disarray began to rise among the people thinking he had died in the war.
There are many similarities between the wife and the old woman in their sense of humor in the bedroom and in marriage. For example, the Wife would tease her husbands in bed, she would refuse intimacy if he did not give her money. She tells the pilgrims, “that each of them was very blissful and eager to bring me gay things from the fair. They were very glad when I spoke to them pleasantly, for, God knows it, I cruelly scolded them” (The Wife of Bath’s Prologue, Line 220). When she mentions how crude she was to her husband’s we can see the similarities between her and the old woman, for in her tale when the old woman is in bed with the knight she teases him by saying, “Does every knight behave thus with his wife as you do?”
Their physical attraction towards each
Love is shown by Ellie through her undecided love between Lee and Homer. When Fi falls in love with Homer, Ellie realizes that Homer has just been a brother she had always wanted and who she doesn’t want to lose and she soon realizes that her true love is with another character Lee. Ellie’s dilemma shows how females can often mistake friendship for love, as well as show the reader that love is possible even in war situations. In my opinion I would recommend this story to my age group
In Greek epics, tragedies, and mythology women are portrayed in various ways. Women are mainly considered to be weak and less important than men, but there are some women who are shown to be strong and heroic, despite the reputation that was placed onto them in Ancient Greek civilizations. There were two particular women that were strong and took the roles of their husbands while the men left to fight in the Trojan War. These two women were Penelope, wife of Odysseus, and Clytemnestra, wife of Agamemnon. These two women were different in how they chose to rule while their husbands were at war and how they acted once they got back.
In The Odyssey, by Homer, provides evidence that there is an existence of strong emotion between the characters in this book. An example of this is in book one, when Penelope, Odysseus’ wife, longs for the return of her husband to their home in Ithaca. “‘How I long for my husband- alive in memory, always, that great man whose fame resounds through Hellas right to the depths of Argos!’” (Homer, 88) is a perfect quote of Penelope expressing her love and devotion to her husband Odysseus. This quote really enhances the plot very well to the point where the reader should feel pity and sorrowful for Penelope as she really desperately please for Odysseus as he is off on his journey.
Odysseus & Penelope 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.
