Odyssey Book 20 Chapter Map
At the feast...
Melanthios returns to taunt the beggar some more
Then Philoitios, a cow herder, gives the beggar hospitality and says he looks like Odysseus
"I broke into sweat, my friend, when I first saw you- see, my eyes still brim with tears, remembering him, Odysseus... he must wear such rags, I know it,knocking about, drifting through the world if he's still alive and sees the light of day" (Homer 417).
Odysseus is still disguised as a beggar
Sleeps outside of Penelope's room
Odysseus wakes up and asks Zeus for a sign for him to come home
Zeus sends a thunderclap on a clear day
Telemachus sees beggar Odysseus and orders for a feast because it's the feast day of Apollo
Agelaos then reminds all of them that Odysseus is probably not coming back so Penelope needs to marry one of them
Telemachus refuses and the suitors start laughing at him
"At that they all broke into peals of laughter aimed at the seer- Polybus' son Eurymachus braying first and foremost, 'Our guest just in from abroad, the man is raving!" (Homer 422).
"Oh, I can see it now- the disaster closing on you all! There's no escaping it, no way out- not for a single one of you suitors, wild reckless fools, plotting outrage here, the halls of Odysseus, great and strong as a god!" (Homer 422)
"A groaning feast- for they'd been first to plot their vicious crimes" (Homer 423).
