Moreover, the only reason Odysseus remained with Calypso for so long was because she forced him to. That is until Athena pleaded with her powerful father, Zeus, to help liberate him. Justifying my idea, Homer wrote “Though he fought shy of her and her desire, he lay with her each night, for she compelled him” (Homer, 914). If it were not for the hypnotic nymph’s compulsion, the righteous Odysseus would have been reunited with his love and queen years before. In addition to Calypso falling in love with Odysseus, so did the enchantress Circe, who also kept him on her island and away from his home.
Although Odysseus claims he wants to get home to his beloved wife, Penelope, he continues to contradict himself throughout the story both through his actions by sleeping around, through taking unnecessary trips that stalled his journey back home even more and flirting with other women along with leading them on. Odysseus throughout the Odyssey claimed he wanted to get home to Penelope and his home land, Ithaca, but he not only contradicts himself through his actions, he also shows a tremendous amount of disloyalty to Penelope throughout the book. One of his stops during his journey home is to the goddess Circe 's island. Odysseus explained to the Phaeacians his stay at Circe 's island by saying, “ -and when she’d finished, then, at last, I
Berth Morisot was a French paintmaker and painter, who was associated with impressionism. Born into a family of a government official who was supportive of the arts she was able to openly practice her passion to paint. Through her painting The Basket Chair, she demonstrates her remarkable style of rough to light brush strokes that create a sense of realism in this piece.

Neoclassicism Jacques-Louis David was a neoclassical painter during the French Revolution. Jacques-Louis painted The Oath of the Horatii in 1784 with oil on a canvas. He lived in Rome while painting this art. The Oath of the Horatii was a represented an event from Roman history to enhance the French loyalty and bravery. His painting was symmetrical by aligning the people and walls horizontally while using smooth strokes to not leave evidence of the brushstrokes.
"And what's more, I love Daisy too. Once in awhile I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time." (pg 140) Although Tom says his heart truly loves Daisy and that he loves her I see this a blunty obvious lie. If he really did love her he would have never cheated on her. Similar to many of the other lies in the story, Tom cared so much about his “power couple”/old money marriage status he had with Daisy that he would rather lie to himself and others about loving her than separating from her.
