Question:
Several of the characters in The Odyssey experience conflicts. List three characters, state their conflicts, and briefly tell how they resolve them.

Answer:
1.Odysseus
The story focus on his trials at sea and on land and how, once he gets home, he must avenge his family's honor from the suitors who have been besieging his house waiting for his wife to choose a new husband. He is aided by Athena in his journeys but thwarted by Poseidon.
Zeus' brother and the god of the sea, he is upset with Odysseus first for not offering sufficient sacrifices to him. He is even more unhappy after Odysseus blinds his son Polyphemus. It is Poseidon that Odysseus still must appease at the end of the poem. Poseidon keeps Odysseus from making it home on multiple occasions.

2.Telemachus
The story begins with his anger at the suitors who are wasting away his estate. At the encouragement of Athena, he begins a journey to search for news of his father. When he returns to Ithaca, he helps his father overcome the suitors and regain his power.

3.Athena
Daughter of Zeus and the goddess of Wisdom. She guides Odysseus and Telemachus throughout the poem helping them find their way from place to place and defeat their adversaries. On several occasions she directly intervenes and enters battle or conflict in the form of a human.

This is information i got from another website. however some of the details that are needed are not written above. I really hope anyone could help me!!I always found this novel quite difficult to understand. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO HELPS! just the conflict and resolution are needed as it says in the question.

  • English -

    I see no conflict or resolution for Athena.

    I see too much extraneous information about Odysseus.

    Stick to the instructions. Rethink and rewrite. Then repost.
