Odysseus from the Odyssey
By Julie Shafer
He is Cunning
Odysseus is also considered a hero in my opinion because he is cunning. He used what he had when he was trapped in the cyclops's cave and eventually defeated him. The cyclops had a club, which to the men looked like "the mast of a twenty-oared black ship, a broad-beamed merchant ship that sails the deep ocean." (page 35 paragraph three) Odysseus then cut off a six-foot length of it and told his men to smooth it, sharpen it, and harden with fire. Then he tricked the cyclops into getting drunk off wine so that he would fall fast asleep, then stabbing him in the eye with the part of his own club.
He is Noble
He has faithful men that obey his every command, even if his some of his men are getting eaten, like in paragraph four of page 34, his men won't run away, becuase he probably told them not to. They all look up to him because he is noble, brave and cunning, which ties into the previous paragraphs.
