How is Hermes described? What articles of clothing is he given? Hermes is described as their messenger. He is given a wand and golden sandals What instructions does Zeus give for Hermes to relay to Calypso? That he will need to return to Odysseus without any help from the gods How is Hermes' journey to Calypso's island described (e.g., does he descend vertically from Olympus, or does he cross the sea horizontally to get there)? He swooped down upon the sea and then sped over the wave like a bird, the cormorant which in quest of fish over the dead gulfs. What sense of Hermes' personality do we get from his interaction with Calypso (e.g., is he all business)? It feels like he is not all business because for the simple fact if he was, he wouldn’t have shed tears nor would he have felt the groans and grief.
