ENGL 1500 Post 3
Describe the characters of Adam and Eve; how are they different from one
another? Are these differences meaningful? Why does Adam decide to join Eve
in her transgression? When the Son of God questions Adam after the Fall, what
If you're indeed a god
and have listened to that goddess when she speaks,
then tell me news of that ill-fated man.
I'm begging you. Is Odysseus still alive
and looking at the sunlight, or is he dead,
already down in Hades' home?

your son will still get home. For he's someone
who's never been offensive to the gods.
Wise Penelope remained in her sweet sleep
beside the gate of dreams. But she replied and said:
Sister, why have you come here?1 Up to now
you haven't visitedyour home's
Come now, let's get up quietly and work
to carry out that plan which all our hearts
responded to with such delight.
After saying this, Antinous picked out his men,
twenty of the best. They went down to the shore
and dragged a swift black ship into deep wa

so rich and far away.
What she said eased the sorrow in Penelope,
whose eyes stopped weeping. She left to bathe herself,
put fresh clothing on her body, and went away,

in his black hollow ship. If I had known
he was going to undertake this journey,
he would have stayed here. He really would,
for all his eagerness to make the trip.
Or else I would have perished in these rooms
why did my son leave? There was no need
for him to go on board swift-moving ships,
men's salt-water horses, to sail across
enormous seas. Did he do it to make sure
he'd never leave a name among all men?
Wise Medon then answered Penelope and said:
sent you out here? Are you supposed to tell
the female household slaves of lord Odysseus
to stop their work and then make them a feast?
After this whole courtship, I hope they never
get together somewhere else. And today,
may they make the banquet in this
back to his father's house. But those two suitors,
Antinous and Eurymachus, had angry hearts.
They quickly got the suitors to give up their games
and had them sit down all together in a group.
Antinous, Eupeithes' son, then spoke to them.
He was annoyed,
it would be far better to meet my death
than constantly to watch these shameful deeds,
strangers being abused and female servants
dragged through this lovely home. It's a disgrace.
Telemachus finished. They all sat there in silence,
saying nothing. At las

I want to fetch and break in one of them.
He finished. In their hearts the suitors were

You noble suitors, listen to me now
I've got something to say. This stranger here
has for some time had an equal portion,
as is right, since it's by no means proper,
nor is it just, for Telemachus' guests
to go wi

make sure your hearts do not encourage you
to gibes and blows, so that no arguments
or fights will happen here.
Once he'd finished speaking,
all the suitors bit their lips. They were astonished
for a different man. Now strangers tell me
to drive the cattle in for their own meals.
They don't care about the son inside the house
or tremble at the vengeance of the gods.
Now they're keen to share amongst themselves

what you've just said. Then you'd find out
how strong I am and what my hands can do.
Eumaeus also prayed like that to all the gods
for wise Odysseus' return to his own home.
As they were talking in this way to one another,
the suitors were making plans ag
Odysseus Leaves Calypso's Island
and Reaches Phaeacia
[The assembled gods decide to send Hermes to tell Calypso to let
Odysseus go; Calypso welcomes Hermes on her island, hears Zeuss orders
and complains; Calypso tells Odysseus he can go and hel
off to sacred Pylos and holy Sparta.
Cloud-gatherer Zeus then answered her and said:
what a speech has slipped the barrier of your teeth!
Did you not organize this plan yourself,
so that Odysseus, once he made it home,
could take out his revenge
Paper Topic 2
The theme of reputation is very important in both Gawain and The Green
Knight and Othello. Some characters in these plays hold their reputation with great
regard while others show very little care for the

Topic 2: In Othello, Iago exclaims, Good name in man and woman, dear my
lord,/Is the immediate jewel of their souls.he that filches from me my good
name/Robs me of that which not enriches him/And makes me poor indeed"

Othello definitely fits the bill for a tragic hero. He is renowned and
prosperous in the fact that he is a general who later rises to the position of governor.
His downfall, which I will get into in a minute, is also tied into what ma
John Milton heavily influenced Mary Shelley, the author of Paradise Lost.
Shelley goes as far as having the Monster in Frankenstein read Paradise Lost in order
to give him a different perspective. It is used not
that never takes a bath in Ocean.1 Calypso,
the lovely goddess, had told him to keep this star
on his left as he moved across the sea. He sailed
for ten days on the water, then for seven more,
and on the eighteenth day some shadowy hills appeared,
Calypso, the lovely goddess, went back home.
Odysseus then began to cut the timber. His work
proceeded quickly. He cut down twenty trees,
used his bronze axe to trim and deftly smooth them,
then lined them up. The fair goddess Calypso
then brought him aug
then answered her and said:
do not be angry with me over this.
I myself know very well Penelope,
although intelligent, is not your match
to look at, not in stature or in beauty.
But she's a human being and you're a god
I'll think of things and give advice, as if
I was scheming for my own advantage,
if ever I should be in such distress.
For my mind is just, and inside my chest
there is no iron heartit feels pity,

and make a raft, a large one. Build a deck
high up on it, so it can carry you
across the misty sea. I'll provision it
with as much food and water and red wine
as you will need to satisfy your wants.
I'll give you clothes and send a favouring wind
for all days to come. But since there's no way
another god can override the plans
of aegis-bearing Zeus or cancel them,
let him be off across the restless seas,
if Zeus has so commanded and decreed.
But I'll have no part of escorting him

tall waves and dangerous winds against them.
All his other noble comrades perished,
but winds and waves still carried him ahead
and brought him here. Now Zeus is ordering you
to send him off as soon as possible.
But Hermes did not find Odysseus in the cave
that great-hearted man sat crying on the shore,
just as before, breaking his heart with tears and groans,
full of sorrow, as he looked out on the restless sea
and wept. Calypso invited Hermes to sit down
on a b
