Lecture 3 Clements 2 Lecture 3: Visual Representations of The Odyssey . In the following lecture we'll examine four main figures that Odysseus meets on his journey: Circe, the Sirens, Penelope, and Polyphemos (the Cyclops). These four mythical characters are also portrayed (in some way or another) in Joel and Ethan Coen's O Brother, Where Art Thou? which we will discuss next day. These characters have also been adapted into thousands of different versions over the last two millennia. Below, we will compare the visual representations of these figures to the text that you've been reading. Then, after viewing the film for the next lecture, think about how these characters have been transformed, yet again, in the present day. The following discussion explores then-contemporary depictions, as well as some seventeenth and nineteenth century versions created when the mythological nature of The Odyssey captured the imagination of many painters in those centuries. Let's start with Circe because she's one of the ancient Greek goddesses in which visual artists have been especially interested. First, let's recap what we know of her. Who is Circe? ¾ She's the goddess who turns Odysseus's men into swine as recounted by the hero in Book 10. ¾
