Art Literature Waiting for Odysseus TV/ Movies

The spongebob movie. In this movie spongebob goes on an epic jounry where he encounters monsters just like Oddysseus. He also recieved a bag of winds which his friend Patrick Starr opened and relased all the wind, which was their way home.




The movie Ulysses 31 has many allusions to the book the Oddyssey. One is that a young man has to go on a long journey where he encounters everything that oddysseus encountered except this movie has a futuristic twist.




In one of The Simpons episodes Homer Simpson finds the book the Oddyssey and reads it to his family. The first allusion is that Homer is reading the Oddyssey and the actual story is by the author Homer. Through out the whole episode they use characters from the simspons as the charaters in the book William- Movies/ Tv
Eric- Literature
Destiny- Music
Ja'Quay- Art The moonlit loom
Stands in the corner like a gallows
And casts its shadow
On my bridal bed.
Disheveled thread.
Loosened hair.
All my pretty industry undone.
I lie wondering
When time will force me to choose
From among ones who use and waste me,
Ones who would deceive with words.
I lie waiting
For one who can pluck the bowstring
So it sings like a swallow,
Thread his arrow through twelve axes
Embedded in a table
Like so many empty years.
Tomorrow,
I weave another day into shroud
That night unravels,
And want to wake
To an old voice saying
“Odysseus is here,
He is in the house,
Though late in coming.”
I can see him sitting there
By the pillar,
Looking down,
A bearded stranger
I may not recognize at first.
Years at war.
Years at sea.
What stories we will tell each other.

Music There are many songs, believe it or not, that are allusions to the Odyssey. Such as: "The Siren Song" by Margaret Atwood, "Song of Aeolus" and "Son gof the Odyssey" by Karl Jenkins, "Dangerous Eyes" and "Sacrifice" by Charlene DiCalogero, "Calypso" by John Denver, and "Home at Last" by Steely Dan. A more known and famous song that's an allusion to the Odyssey is called "Tales of Brave Ulysses" by Eric Clapton and Martin Sharp. You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.

Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
With tales of brave Ulysses; how his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing.

The tiny purple fishes run lauging through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
Tales of Brave Ulysses Fun Fact:
The song "The Journey Home", by Sarah Brightman, is based on the journey home from Troy. Some lines in this song are: "The journey home is never too long", which is REALLY ironic because it takes Odysseus twenty years to get back home.
Art "Odysseus and Calypso"

"Telemachus and Penelope"
by Unknown "Penelope Weaving"
by John W. Waterhouse Fun Fact:
This animal is known as the Colossal Squid. This animal could be what Odysseus and his men thought were Scylla. It's found in the coldest and deepest parts of the ocean, but occasionally warm water causes the squid to rise to the surface where it is unable to return to the depths. THE END The spongebob movie.
