In Homer 's The Odyssey, translated by Robert Fagles, Odysseus is trying to get home from the Trojan War but he is gone for many years. Most readers notice that Odysseus is trying his best to get home to his wife Penelope, but a careful reader notices that he is trying so hard because of the high level of loyalty Odysseus has for her. With that, there are many different times where Odysseus shows his loyalty for Penelope. People may say that Odysseus is not loyal to Penelope because he has affairs with Calypso and Circe, and isn 't loyal to Penelope when he comes back. However, Odysseus is loyal because he has reasons for why he is with other women, and he
Towards the middle of Book II, Telemachus feels discouraged about the probability of him being able to successfully complete the quest to retrieve his father. Seeing his distress, Athena attempts to rally him by stating that Telemachus’ quest couldn’t fail because he possessed the distinctive traits of his father that Athena seems to find so admirable. “Telemachus, you’ll lack neither courage nor sense from this day on, not if your father’s spirit courses through your veins- now there was a man, I’d say, in words and actions both! So how can your journey end in shipwreck or defeat? Only if you we're not his stock, Penelope’s too, then I’d fear you're hopes might come to grief.
Richard slowly began to miss his home and his younger brother Kenny, he realized that it is not easy to be away from home in a long period of time. For example, “It made me sad that Mama had written to Peewee to day that she loved me. She hadn’t even told me that when I was leaving.” (121). At this point in the book, I realized that Richard was very young to be in the war by himself and didn’t know how to act when he was writing to his own mother. This connects to the theme by showing age can have an impact on somebody.
However, when the war occurred, the kids at Kerry Corner signed up to participate in the war, and went overseas; nobody expected it before the war, because people at Kerry Corner were not familiar with traveling the world. Even during the war, young men from Kerry Corner were together, and worried each other fondly. Their families in the States hoped in one mind that their kids could come back safely. After the war, most of the young men came back home safe, and returned to their daily life. Some of them finished their study, and others went to work using their talents from the war.

Dee Ann was left obsessed with what had happened. Every year her husband brings up the names of those involved, hoping he would say them and she would just let it go like nothing happened (Yarbrough 632). Because of this, her inability to let go, Chuckie was often away from home, and Dee Ann feared he was cheating on her. She almost questions his friend, but “if he has looked surprised, it would have worried her, and if he hadn't, it would have worried her more…” (Yarbrough 637), so she doesn't ask. What he's father did to her mother caused he to have no trust in her own husband.
There are more damages than benefits for the families that are separated because one or both parents came to United States to work. Those parents let their children in their origin countries with grandparents or other relatives who take care of them. They do not know if they would be together soon or not, like Lourdes, who promised to go back with her children many times, and she never did. Pg. 36 “Christmas arrives, and Enrique waits by the door.
Many sailors, even seasoned yachters, are unaware of cabin chartering and don't realize that this is a viable chartering option. However, you can't try something you don't know about, so what is a cabin charter? A cabin charter is the option to charter a single cabin on a yacht rather than the entire yacht. This option is the perfect solution for sailors on a budget, or vacationers who don't wish to have to deal with the work and responsibility involved in sailing their own charter. I wish I had known about this when I was young and determined to explore the world!
Which makes them feel secluded from the rest of the world because they don’t want to lie, and because of this, they have trouble adjusting after coming home.
