Write a 5 paragraph essay about Odysseus in the Odyssey.
Help me study for my Writing class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
1. Odysseus was a hero by the Greek definition; would he be a hero by American standards—or by your own? Make sure you defend your view with judicious examples from the text.
Feel free to use quotations from the Odyssey to support your general views, but because the online text we are using is inconsistent in its line identifications, you do not need to cite the lines or include a Works Cited page. Only use short quotations when necessary, not lengthy ones. References to specific incidents in the text are often just as good as using quotations. Use only the Odyssey and your own thoughts to support your views; do not use other sources.
