Transcript of The Odyssey

Jack Bruck Book1 Book 2 Book 3 Book 4 "But if you only knew, down deep, what pains
are fated to fill your cup before you reach that shore,
you’d stay right here. . . ." "Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns
driven time and again off course, once he had plundered
the hallowed heights of Troy." "For never, never, wicked man was wise." "But the great leveler, Death: not even the gods
can defend a man, not even one they love, that day
when fate takes hold and lays him out at last." The Odyssey Book 5 Book 6 Daughter of Jove! whose arms in thunder wield

The avenging bolt, and shake the dreadful shield;

Forsook by thee, in vain I sought thy aid

When booming billows closed above my head:

Attend, unconquer’d maid! accord my vows,

Bid the Great hear, and pitying, heal my woes. Calypso is trying to tell Odysseus that he should stay with her because leaving is too dangerous. This is Odysseus praying to Athena. Book 7 "'Friend, my child's good judgment failed in this-
not to have brought you in her company home.
Once you approached her, you became her charge.'" This is from the king who is dissappointed in his daughter, Nausicaa, for letting Odysseus come alone. Book 8 "'Now shift your theme and sing that wooden horse
Epeios built, inspired by Athena...'" This is when Odysseus is asking Demodocus to sing about the Trojan Horse and the sack of Troy. Book 9 "'Kyklops,
you ask my honorable name? Remember
the gift you promised me, and I shall tell you.
my name is Nohbdy: mother father and friends,
everyone calls me Nohbdy.'" Book 9, lines 394 - 399 This is where Odysseus is telling Polyphemus that his name is nobody. Book 10 'Take yourself out of this island, creeping thing-
...Your voyage here was cursed by heaven!'" Book 10 lines 82-85 This is Aeolus telling Odysseus and his men to leave the island. Book 11 "But you, Achilles, there's not a man in the world more blest than you" Here is Odysseus explaining to the ghost of Achilles that he was blest in the living world, and now is blest in the dead world. Book 12 "'Shipmates, grieving and weary though you are,
listen: I had forewarning from Teiresias
and Kirke, too; both told me I must shun
this island of the Sun, the world's delight.
Nothing but fatal trouble shall we find here,
Pull away, then, and put the land astern.'" Book 12, lines 350-5 Here is Odysseus trying to persaude his men not to go to the Island of the Sun. Book 13 "'Live in felicity,
and make this palace lovely for your children,
your countrymen and your king.'" Book 13, lines 75-7 This is pretty much Odysseus saying goodbye to the queen of Scheria. Book 14 "'There is your dinner friend, the pork of the slaves.
Our fat shoats are eaten by the suitors,
cold-heated men, who never spare a thought
for how they stand in the sight of Zeus. The gods
living in bliss are fond of no wrongdoing,
but honor discipline and right behavior.'" Book 14, lines 97-103 This is Eumaeus giving dinner to Odysseus although they don't know eachother. This shows the code of hospitality. Book 15 "'At daybreak I must go and try my luck
around the port. I burden you too long.
Direct me, put me on the road with someone.
Nothing else for it but to play the beggar.'" Book 15, lines 381-4
Book 16 "'Friends, face up to it;
that young pup Telemakhos, has done it;
he made the round trip, though we said he could not.
Well- now to get the best craft we can find
afloat, with oarsmen who can drench her bows,
and tell those on the island to come home.'" Book 16, lines 415-20 Book 17 "'Back with me!
Telemakhos, more sweet to me than sunlight!
I thought I should not see you again, ever,
after you took the ship that night to Pylos-
against my will, with not a word! You went
for news of your dear father. Tell me now
of everything you saw!'" Book 17, lines 51-7 Book 18 "'Listen to him! the swine can talk your arm off,
Like an old oven woman! With two punches
I'd knock him snoring...'" Book 18, lines 30-2 Book 19 "'Yes!
You are Odysseus! Ah, dear child! I could not
see you until now- not till I knew
my master's body with my hands!' Book 19, lines 549-52 Book 20 "'Herdsman, I make you out to be no coward
and no fool: I can see that for myself.
So let me tell you this. I swear by Zeus
al highest, by the table set for friends,
and by your king's hearthstone to which I've come,
Odysseus will return. You'll be on hand
to see, if you care to see it,
how those who lord it here will be cut down.'" Book 20, lines 250-7 Book 21 "'Here is my lord Odysseus' hunting bow.
Bend and string it if you can. Who sends an arrow
through iron axe-helve sockets twelve in line?
I join my life with his and leave this place, my home,
my rich and beautiful bridal house, forever
to be remembered, though I dream it only.'" Book 21, lines 78-83 Book 22 "Think of a catch that fishermen haul in to a halfmoon bay
in a fine-meshed net from the whit-caps of the sea:
how all are poured out on the sand, in throes for the salt- sea,
twitching their cold lives away in Helios' fiery air:
so lay the suitors heaped on one another." Book 22, lines 432-6 Book 23 "'I did not see it,
I knew nothing; only I heard the groans
of men dying. We sat still in the inner rooms
holding our breath, and marveling, shut in,
until Telemakhos came to the door and called me-
your own dear son, sent this time by his father!'" Book 23, lines 41-6 Book 24 "'Son of Laertes and the gods of old,
Odysseus, master of land ways and sea ways,
command yourself. Call off this battle now,
or Zeus who views the wide world may be angry.'" Book 24, lines 605-609 Homer is asking for inspiration as he begins to tell the tale of Odysseus. This basically says that evil is never wise enough to triumph. This is saying that no matter how mighty you are during your life, death will always catch up to you. "'His son, in my house! How I loved the man,
And how he fought through hardship for my sake!'" Book 3, lines 181-2 Here is Menelaus in somewhat of a shock that the great warrior's son, Telemachus, is in his house. Here is when Telemachus is leaving his life with Menelaus and Helen and returning to his journey. This is when the entire palace is being informed that Telemachus has safely returned from his journey. This is the tearful reuniting of Penelope and her son Telemachus. Here is the confrontation between Odysseus and the agressive beggar. Soon they fight and Odysseus nearly kills him. Here is the reuniting of Penelope and her husband Odysseus. Here we have a herdsman promising that Odysseus will return and kill all of the suitors. This is Penelope explaining to the suitors what they must do if they ever wish to marry her. This is an excellent quote describing what the bloodshed of the suitors must have looked like after Odysseus was finished. This is Penelope talking about her perspective of the night where all of the suitors were killed. Here is Odysseus being ordered to keep peace with the rest of the town although he just killed many of their greatest people.
