i need help answering this 30 mark question on the odyssey!!Watch this thread
i’m planning the points like this:
- circe x3
- athena x3
- calypso x3
- plus some scholars x2
but what shall i write for each female?
Find the important roles each female played. Not all of the females were helpful in helping him to return home - thanks to Calypso and Circe he was actually delayed quite significantly.
Athena was his biggest source of help of course - you could quote from the poem (not forgetting book & line references) to show the ways in which she assisted him.
You could mention the sirens as well.
Don't forget to show both sides of the argument (how they're important to his return and success vs how they aren't - maybe even a hindrance!) before making your ultimate conclusion.
