How long is the Original “The Odyssey” by Homer.
So I read the Odyssey like 2 years ago, not in school or anything like that but by my self.I have The Odyssey I guess published by the “Townsend Library” because it has that label in the bottom, the book is not that long barely some 360 pages.My Question is, is this like a summary of the whole…
There is no “Original “The Odyssey” by Homer.” There isn’t even proof there was a singular Homer rather than many bards carrying poetry of history through Attica. If the translator of the koine tries for a rhymed and metered telling it will be much longer. I you read an English version from the Latin vulgate it will be shorter than a direct greek. With foot notes, special spacing and an index bibliography the book can run near 500 pages.
In Homer’s Oddesey, how many times does Agememnon’s story come up and in what book/page are the stories on.
Normally in this case i would ask for differences between these stories and why, but i would rather come up with my own. Classical Mythology paper. I just cant remember what pages they are on and i am about to go to sleep.

questions abt the Odyssey by homer.
please answer in paragraph form…how can this book be tied to ancient rome or greece?Was the physical lay of the land important in any parts of the story? how or why not? how about the weather?What are the main events that move the plot along? What is the climax of the story? How did it end?
This classic from Greek literature was written in the Greek language as an epic poem — the return of Odysseus from the Trojan War to his wife Penelope and son Telemachus;the Greek and Roman civilizations had many overseas wars to fight and many veterans who were on the way home, at times for decades.The author HOMER includes a fight scene between the returning husband and the scheming suitors who are seeking Penelope to marry one of them. . .
What is the central internal conflict that Oddyseus must confront in the Odyssey.
I need the central internal conflict and how Odysseus reaches the resolution with direct quotations along with page numbers from The Odyssey by Homer, translated by Robert Fitzgerald.Thanks In Advance For Alll Your Help!!
I am reading that same one for school. This is a hard question because it could be so many different things depending on the ppint in the story. It could be the Gods troubling his way back to Ithaca in the first half, then the trouble with the suitors when he arrives back. There isn’t one specific problem throughout the book, but my best guess would be one of those two. It could also be the hostile tribes he has to deal with here and there like the cyclops, but it is most likely the first one about the gods
What were the roles of women in The Odyssey by Homer.
I am writing a paper on the roles of women and how they are portrayed in the Greek patriarchal society that the epic was written in. I ned info on Circe, Calypso, Penelope, Athena, ect. Please incluse a source….website, book, ect. Thanks!!
If you’ve read any other epic, such as the Iliad, you should have observed how the female characters are pretty stereotyped. Andromache is good, Helen is bad, Briseis is passive. In the Odyssey, however, there’s a wide range of female characters, and they’re all individuals. penelope is a fit mate for the “thinking hero”; Circe is a clever enchantress; Calypso is a sexy but rather dull goddess who can’t understand what Penelope has that she doesn’t (brains, the ability to be interesting); Eurycleia is the first of a long line of literary nursemaids ranging through Juliet’s nurse to Scarlett O’Hara’s Mammy; Nausicaa is an intelligent and determined girl who plays a key role in getting Odysseus safely home . . . . There are still others. And the primary god in the Odyssey is a goddess, who in many ways fills the role that in other epics is filled by the hero’s best friend. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that the society of the Odyssey was PATRIarchal!As for a source, do you really need one beyond the Odyssey itself?
What positive and negative qualities of Odysseus charactr are revealedby his behavior in the land of Cyclopes.
In the book “THE ODYSSEY” BY: HOMER,
Time to buckle down and actually read your assignment…for several reasons. The first is that too many folks in Y!A are onto the homework shirkers by now and most of what you’ll get as answers will not be helpful. The second reason is that doing one’s own homework is how you learn things. Granted, some things like classical Greek epic poetry don’t seem like they will help you in later life, but there plenty of reasons to have a good general education and be familiar with classical literature. Third, The Odyssey IS one of those classics that people refer to in everyday conversation…it pays not to look too ignorant if somebody makes a reference to Cyclops or to the “wine-dark sea.”Now, that lecture over, if you’ve read this far, some of Odysseus’ characteristics are: resourcefulness, intelligence, trickery, loyalty, bravery, ruthlessness and a certain facility with language. See if you can identify the places in the story of the Cyclops where he uses them.
how many days was the odyssey.
greek mythology book
The entire mythic cycle is 20 years (10 years at Troy and 10 years trying to get home) But the actual text of the Odyssey occurs over only a few weeks. The story starts in medias res with Telemachos, urged by Athena, to go visit Nestor and Menelaus and ask about his daddy. Odysseus has already been captive on Kalypso’s island and has already has nearly all his adventures when the story starts; huge parts of the text are Odysseus retelling what has already happened to the Phaicians. He then gets to go home, plays his little identity games, kills the suitors, gets tricked by Penelope, visits his daddy, then Athena comes in and pulls a deus ex machina and that is the end. From book 1 to 24 it’s a couple weeks, not ten or twenty years.Ahhh exact numbers…Iliad is 52 days…hang on, i’ll find itAH HA the Odyssey occurs over a 40 day period woot woot here’s the link also has the summaries =)http://www.robotwisdom.com/jaj/homer/ody…
How is the Odyssey related to Ancient Greece.
How is the book the Odyssey by Homer related to the past ancient Greece society?Thank you soo much!
The Ancient Greeks were fabulous storytellers. They loved their heroes, myths and legends. This is portrayed in Homer’s “Odyssey” and many other stories.
How many pages are in the book odyssey..
I have to read the book “The odyssey” by Homer for summer reading and I still have to finish reading “The adventures of Huckle Berry Finn.” I am trying to figure out how many pages are in the Odyssey. I havent gotten the book yet cuz my dad is waiting till I finish my first book. So any one know…
Depends on the printer, of course. My copy of Robert Fagles’ translation is 537 pages for the poem itself, with another 100 or so for the introduction and notes.Frankly, if it’s taken you all summer to not finish Huckleberry Finn, you haven’t got a chance. Too bad. They’re both great and important books.
