His leadership helps him and his crew eventually return home to their families. Throughout the book he also demonstrates skill. This helps him fight his way through the many obstacles he faces trying to get home. Resilience is another very important thing that Odysseus displays across the entirety of the book. This is important because it is what keeps Odysseus going on his journey home.
Also, Odysseus shows his resiliency numerous times during his journey back to Ithaka, especially when he is faced with difficult challenges such as the journey past the Sirens. Odysseus expresses two main traits throughout the Odysseus that aids him on his quest to allow him to thrive as a hero. The first of these two traits consists of being tactical, meaning acting in an organized manner that is well thought out and enacted as planned. The main part in the poem when Odysseus expresses this is when he meets his son in “Book Sixteen” of The Odyssey. In the beginning of chapter seventeen, right after Odysseus stumbles upon his son for the first time in the long time.
Odysseus having endured many years abroad, hasn’t let his many undertakings stop him from achieving his goal of returning to his kingdom in Ithaca. Similarly, Moana uses her inherited love for the ocean to save her island and people. Henceforth, the hero’s journey, constructed by Joseph Campbell, is very crucial in analyzing books as well as movies to show the similarities between heroes on their journey. The hero's journey cycle begins off with the call to adventure, times of crisis and the return back with a new outlook on life from this experience. This is true for all myths of different origins because the pattern is universal and occurs every time.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
This exhibits his reasons of being selfless and shows that these two myths both have a main character who undergoes a stage in which they have to leave their home to benefit others. This proves that characters in many cultures have the urge to go out to explore the world and the urge to help others. In addition, in The Odyssey the reward that Odysseus gets is to be reunited with his family again: “So she too rejoiced, her gaze upon her husband, her white arms round him pressed as though forever,” (Holt McDougal 1265). The books then ends with Penelope and Odysseus being joyous after all the adversities that Odysseus went through to get back home, making the treacherous journey worthwhile. In The Three Advices, John’s reward is, “A nice new-slated house, which the squire had furnished and made ready for him” (Crocker 1).
In the Odyssey, Homer uses Odysseus’s journey to show how one’s journey can define them as a person. One way Odysseus’s character is defined in the Odyssey is through his loyalty towards his family. Calypso tells Odysseus, “Son of Laertes, versatile Odysseus, after these years with me, you still desire your old home?” then Odysseus replies, “It is true, each day I long for home, long for the sight of home,”
In the epic poem The Odyssey by Homer the main character, Odysseus, is an epic hero because he absolutely upholds all of the qualities of an epic hero. Some of the qualities may include courage, nobility, strength, confidence, and determination. Odysseus is always ready for an adventure, he is not scared of anything in his way, and he will stop at nothing to get what and where he wants. His curiosity has taken him on wild journeys, and many issues but he is always able to escape the dangers he encounters. In Book 9 Odysseus and his men came across the Island of the Cyclops, they were in trouble because the Cyclops wanted to eat them.

Penelope loses Odysseus when he goes off to fight in the Trojan War. He promised her that he would come back, but after 20 years of him being gone, she began to have doubts. Penelope believed her husband would come back and held off the suitors. An example of Penelope staying loyal to Odysseus is when she tricked the suitors by telling them that she would choose one to marry once she finished sewing the shroud. She tricked them by taking it apart every night so she would never finish and would get some time for Odysseus to arrive.
When Romeo and Juliet met it was unexpected, they had no idea that they came from the rival families, but it was love at first sight.
