So I'm writing an analytical essay on The Odyssey, about Odysseus.
And I have to pick traits about him and use multiple quotes to support what I say.
So I have a paragraph which I am trying to describe his homesickness.
Would a quotation about how he yearned to hug his dead mom's ghost after not seeing her for years count as homesickness?
