Write a proposal suggesting ways for the Odyssey to be made into a movie that's set in the present. Imagine that the readers of the proposal will be the producers of the movie. Explain how you would modernize the epic.'

The only things I can't seem to modernize are:

He meets lotus eaters, sirens, cyclops, scylla and charybdis.

He is tempted by Calypso and Circe

Forutne hunters at home around his wife.

Son is insulted.

Please Please help!

Thanks

  1. These -- lotus eaters, sirens, cyclops, scylla and charybdis -- could represent people of different cultures and those with strange or anti-social habits. How about drug addicts, prostitutes, etc.?

    Our news media shows men like Tiger Woods being tempted by "sirens."

    MC -- use YOUR imagination for the rest.
