Hymn to Demeter - How powerful is Zeus? Pg. 9-10, Zeus never himself approaches Demeter, perhaps because he’s afraid that he will not be able to reconcile her in front of the other gods Could Zeus have forced Demeter to stop the famine? It is unlikely as no other god could do Demeter’s job. The fact that Zeus did not foresee this disaster adds instability to what kind of power he really has. The Odyssey line 9, book 1, (“from some point…”), informs the reader that this story will not be told in a chronological or organized manner line 19, book 1, (“he remained relentlessly angry”), these events have already taken place lines 62-68, book 1, Zeus’ power is questioned, is he really almighty? lines 76-79, book 1, implies that Zeus needs back up to persuade Poseidon Why does Athena care so much about Odysseus??? Athena drives Telemachos and Odysseus in the right direction, but could not help Odysseus at sea because she did not want to anger Poseidon What is the role of fate in the Odyssey???

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
