The very first “community instinct” in practice that Leopold refers to in this piece is the revenge of Odysseus on his “slave-girls” – what is this story about, and does it have more that people as property?

Leopold is correct that the female slaves are property, but their “crimes” are not merely “misbehaviour.” In the story these female slaves are characterizes as concubines for men who come to ask Penelope, Odysseus’s wife, to marry them so that they can take over Odysseus and Penelope’s land and household.

This is significant because the men are punished, too, but in an entirely different way than the women. Odysseus slays them all, by his own hand, and then orders the women to clean up the mess before they are hanged together.

    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.
