Altahir Kozelchik Ms. De La O English 9A October 4, 2016 The Odyssey Trickery and Disguise In Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, the actions of others proves Odysseus to be a man of trickery as shown in many scenarios. Acknowledging to be the protagonist of regardless acts, that proves his sorts of characteristics using trickery, whether it’s to run away from lifestyles that are threatening situations, or to commit devious acts. In addition, Odysseus and I are likely similar to one another since we both embody the identical distinctive characteristics of dishonesty, which as a matter of fact should be common if you are using trickery in any scenario that would apply dishonesty towards the other person, as well as yourself. Therefore, when I was at a jewelry store with my mother buying some gold, I on the other hand had my eyes on the prize which was getting a perfume from this lady across the other side where she had her booth right outside her store so that she would advertise her store so that people would come in and buy her products. Well in that case, I was five years old and I really wanted the perfume and I had my eyes since I came in the other store and just kept in staring at it till my gut told me to get it and os I did. WHen the women wasn't looking i went and hid right underneath the cover sheet that was covering all of the other tester that she had out in case the other rand out so she would have taken them out incas those ran out so I grabbed a could of perfumes and ran out when she wasn't looking. And when my mother asked me where got them I just told her that a really nice lady gave them to me for free and my mother being a mother new that nothing is free and so she asked me again and I simply said that it's the truth that the lady did give them to me and I had to lie that they were given to me because she was really nice and I just took it. For some case, trickery is a foremost underlying theme that reoccurs throughout Odysseus journey in the book. For whatever reason, the moral and ethical structure through the story of Odysseus makes the reader learn about the individual characters in the story beside the main character Odysseus, which is often a concept based off of trickery. Thus, Odysseus and I share a common characteristic that makes us alike that we use trickery to escape from situation they we can’t get our way through without lying or tricking others to get what we want.

of using trickery to get what we want this has been shown throughout the Odyssey that proves Odysseus or not a man to be trusted not ad man that we can count on and therefore there has always been a times where Odysseus and i have shared a common theme that is we use trickery to get away from things either if we liked it or if it were to be an essential thing that we need in order for us to escape from scenarios that we can't get out way through without having to lie. In consequence, I would have to say that

    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.
