Transcript of Odyssey Book 5

Book V: Sweet Nymph
and Open Sea By Makenzie, Morgan and Nick Characters Literary Interpretation Literary Analysis Key Passages Literary Analysis The End "Son of Laertes, versatile Odysseus,
after these years with me, you still desire
your old home? Even so, I wish you well.
If you could see it all, before you go-
all the adversity you face at sea-
you would stay here, and guard this house, and be
immortal-though you wanted her forever,
that bride for whom you pine each day.
Can I be less desirable than she is?
Less interesting? Less beautiful? Can mortals
compare with goddesses in grace and form?"
Book 5, lines 212-222 pg. 87 "When Dawn spread out her finger tips of rose
Odysseus pulled his tunic and his cloak on,
while the sea nymph dressed in a silvery gown."
Book 5, Line 237 pg. 87 "Upon her hearthstone a great fire blazing
scented the farthest shores with cedar smoke
and smoke of thyme, and singing high and low
in her sweet voice, before her loom a-weaving,
she passed her golden shuttle to and fro."
Lines 64-68, pg. 83 "Order Odysseus home; let him depart.
But let him have no company, gods or men,
only a raft that he must lash together, and after twenty days, worn out at sea,
he shall make land upon the garden isle
(...) Let these men take him to their hearts in honor
and berth him a ship, and send him home,
with gifts of garments, gold, and bronze-
(...) His destiny is to see his friends again
under his own proof, in his father's country."
(Book 5, Lines 36-47 pg. 82) Compete eagerly with someone in order to do or achieve something. What are the gods motives for helping Odysseus? (Athena, Ino) Odysseus Athena All the Gods (with the exception of Poseidon) have a meeting to discuss Odysseus' fate
Hermes is sent to tell Calypso to let Odysseus leave
Calypso gives a passionate speech on double standards but submits and helps Odysseus build a raft
Poseidon sees him and creates a storm which almost drags Odysseus underwater
Ino and Athena save him with a protective veil
Odysseus escapes to a forested island Summary book 5 - How can this be applied today? Calypso Poseidon Ino Calypso complains of the male gods and their double standard for mortals and immortals Calypso Poseidon Would you consider Calypso
a sympathetic character? personification Ino is "like a diving bird", "dove like a gull"
Line 348, 365 pg. 90 & 91 similes Odysseus sleeps with Calypso one last time even though he is returning home. foreshadowing noun: a shelflike sleeping space, as on a ship,
airplane, or railroad car. Does Odysseus deserve what is foreshadowed? Why do the Gods keep what they are doing for Odysseus from Poseidon? Zeus Hermes Imagery "An octopus, when you drag one from his chamber,
comes up with suckers full of tiny stones:
Odysseus left the skin of his great hands
torn on that rock-ledge as the wave submerged him."
(Book 5, Lines 451-454 pg. 93) metaphor - How would this be viewed during this time period? Would it be frowned upon or not? Explain. hear
