Transcript of Fate

Fate that in which is inevitably predetermined;
Destiny Fate is that Odysseus will have trouble getting home to Ithaca because of Posidon. "'O hear me, lord, blue girdler of the islands, if I am thine indeed, and thou art father: grant that Odysseus, raider of cities, never see his home: Laertes' son, I mean, who kept his hall on Ithaca. Should destiny intend that he shall see his roof again among his family in his father land, far be that day, and dark the years between. Let him lose all companions, and return under strange sail to bitter days at home." -It was fate when the Cyclops said this. It was destined that Athena would help Odysseus find his way home.
It was already written (fate) that Scylla would see Odysseus's boat and strike six men, but not Odysseus. It was fate that Odysseus's crew opened the bag of wind sending the boat back to the land of wind. Fate is preordained by a power beyond that of even gods, Fate has it that when Odysseus was asleep in a cave, his men
killed some of the sun god's cows. When Odysseus went to pray to the gods in a cave, it was fate that the gods made him fall asleep. "'On the afterdeck, the mast had hit the steersman a slant blow bashing the skull in, knocking him overside, as the brave soul fled the body, like a diver. With crack on crack of thunder, Zues let fly a bolt against the ship, a direct hit, so that she bucked, in reeking fumes of sulphur, and all the men were flung into the sea.'" -It was fate that Odysseus was able to survive. It was destined that all the men drown, except Odysseus. Through all the obstacles, it was fate that Odysseus would get home to Ithaca with the help of Athina. By: Morgan and Stratford
