Transcript of Odysseus' Revenge

Group 7 Odysseus' Revenge Activity Summary Odysseus finally returns home and comes to find that men are lining up for his wife's hand in marriage, even though Odysseus is still alive. Odysseus is angered and gets his revenge on all the suitors. He kills Antinous first because he was ridiculing Odysseus and was the strongest of all the suitors. So when Antinous goes to sip his wine, Odysseus kills him by shooting him in the throat with his arrow. The suitors' anger flares when he does this, but it soon turns to fear when Odysseus tells them what he has in store for them. The suitors plead with him telling him everything was Antinous' fault, but Odysseus doesn't believe them, and he doesn't he care. So Odysseus fights the men with his son, Telemachus by his side. Athena sends down a thundercloud to shield Odysseus. The suitors run madly, trying to escape, but it was hopeless, nobody made it out alive. Odysseus- The central figure in the epic
