In the author Homer's epic Odyssey and Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad. For this essay, I will explore a thematic idea that is presented in both Homer's and Atwood's stories. How is the thematic idea presented in each work and what difference does that make? I will first identify two literary devices that can be seen in both stories or poems.  Then explain how the authors use those literary devices to develop one similar theme.  Explore how the theme is used, why it is used, and why it is appropriate.
