Lecture 12 10/13/09 Odyssey: Nastoi Athena disguises herself as a man, and tells Odysseus about how he has returned back home, Odysseus is wearing a mask because he fears that she is Athena in disguise. Masks: Fool, Rogue and Clown are evident in the encounter with Athena. Athena talks to Odysseus in a kind of playful way, she tells him that she has been helping him all along. He gives up his identity once again and dresses like a beggar in order to get back home. Reunion Scene “Now from his breast into his eyes the ache of longing mounted, and he wept at last, his dear wife, clear and faithful , in his arms, longed for as the sun warmed earth is longed for by a swimmer spent in rough water where his ships went down under Poseidon’s blows, gale winds and tons of sea.” The last part actually happened to Odysseus reminding us that Penelope is what he longed for the whole time.
