Dossier In The Odyssey
Odyssey Project Each student is to keep a dossier, a file, of the Olympian gods Zeus and Athena in the Iliad. The total project is worth 150 points; the dossier on Zeus is worth fifty points, the dossier on Athena 100 points because it will be longer. Each student should note the characteristics, attributes, activities (speeches and actions), the epithets (various names), iconography, who the god normally associates with, and how the god is viewed by others (gods and humans) of each chosen god in the epic. The student should note the book, line number, and page number of the class edition (or approved edition). Internet editions may not be used—for obvious reasons. Once all the information is gathered, each student must write up the dossier in two or three pages …show more content…

    Long ago, there was a time were the Gods were the only ones that could save Humanity. Peace at Mount Olympus, or anywhere else was no more. Hades came like a lion from the underworld, and brought his Furies to torture the people of the Earth. Furies were Monsters of Hades and Persephone. The wise Athena warned Zeus about this. He was already hyperaware, so he didn’t listen to her. He didn’t want to help the people. Zeus decided to leave Olympus, because he couldn’t stand the yelling of the people. When the wicked Hades found out that he was gone he sent his furies to go to Mount Olympus. The other Gods and Goddesses were week against all the furies in the palace. They tried to defend as much of the palace as they could. The furies ended up taking something very important from the Gods that day. It was light! The light from the sun that made it shine. The moon was all the light you could see. Loyal Hermes was sent to give the message to Zeus for him to come back.…

    Odysseus and his tired men land upon a barren island, surrounded by crystal waters. They anchored their ship and shuffled off, in weary silence. The island was only a raised chunk of smooth white rock, with an igloo shaped cave. “We have learned our lesson with Polyphemus, we must stay clear of that cave.” Shouted Odysseus. Some men agreed with him, but others muttered in disagreement. They group decided to settle down for the night, as they longed to sleep on solid land once again, even for just one night. They set up a camp and lit a fire, none talking as each slowly fell asleep. The long trip had run its course on the remaining men, leaving them with no hope, giving them no voice. There was nothing to talk about these days, with no hope…

    Role of Zeus in the Iliad

    • 4994 Words
    • 20 Pages

    As an introduction, I would like to give you some background on my subject, which happens to be Zeus. Zeus is also known as the supreme god of the Olympians. Zeus was the youngest son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. When he was born, his father Cronus intended to swallow him as he had all of Zeus 's siblings: Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter and Hera. But Rhea hid the newborn in a cave on Mount Dicte in Crete. (To this day, the guides at the "cave of Zeus" use their flashlights to cast shadow puppets in the cave, creating images of baby Zeus from the myth.) When he had grown up, Zeus caused Cronus to vomit up his sisters and brothers, and these gods joined him in fighting to wrest control of the universe from the Titans and Cronus, their king. Having vanquished his father and the other Titans, Zeus imprisoned most of them in the underworld of Tartarus. Then he and his brothers Poseidon and Hades divided up creation. Poseidon received the sea as his domain, Hades got the Underworld and Zeus took the sky. Zeus also was accorded supreme authority on earth and on Mount Olympus. Zeus was also known for having many relations with mortal and immortal alike. His offspring include Ares god of war, Eris goddess of discord, Apollo god of light, Aphrodite goddess of beauty, Hermes god of thieves and commerce, Artemis huntsman of the gods, Hephaestus god of the forge, Persephone wife of Hades, Hebe goddess of youth, Dionysus god of the vine, Epaphus, Minos King of Create, Rhadamanthus, the Muses namely, Clio (History), Urania (Astronomy), Melpomene (Tragedy), Thalia (Comedy), Terpsichore (Dance), Calliope (Epic Poetry), Erato (Love Poetry), Polyhymnia (Songs to the Gods), Euterpe (Lyric Poetry), and his favourite Athena. Other stories in Greek mythology include the creation of the world, the overthrowing…

    There are many similarities between O Brother Where Art Thou and The Odyssey. The characters and events that play out are mostly relative to each other. They have the same story plot and outcome. Both of the men are on a journey to get home to their wives and children. Some of the similarities are obvious while others are more diverse and take more thought into the symbolism and meaning behind them.…
