Assignment: Character Growth in The Odyssey
Follow the assignment instructions and review the rubric:
BACKGROUND: After devising the trick of using the wooden horse to win the Trojan War, Ulysses (Odysseus) believes he is as good as the gods. Who needs them? Clearly, he suffers from hubris.
Before landing on Calypso’s island, Ulysses (Odysseus) exhibits the behaviors of an alazon, one who acts better than he really is — and he’s destined not only for punishment from the gods, but he brings about his own suffering and the deaths of all his crew. As one who champions the “me” culture, Ulysses (Odysseus) fails at the “we” community-building. It takes him 20 years of sailing and suffering in what should have been a few weeks.
After all of his men die, and he suffers alone on Calypso’s island for many years, Ulysses (Odysseus) contemplates the mistakes he’s made. Near the end of The Odyssey, he allows Minerva (Athena) to transform him into a beggar before returning to Ithaca. A younger Odysseus would never have permitted himself to be transformed into an old, weak beggar. As such, back home in Ithaca, he is immediately abused by suitors. Yet, he uses lessons learned to exercise syphrosine (restraint): he perseveres and plans his revenge.
ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS: In what major ways has the older Odysseus changed and learned from the mistakes he made as a younger man? Citing many episodes and using many quotes from Ulysses (Odysseus), Homer’s narration, the advice of both immortals and mortals, write an analysis essay of how Ulysses (Odysseus) has changed from an alazon, one who acts better than he really is, into an eiron, one who is better than he claims or appears to be. How and why does he grow and change? What has he learned in the process? What advice might he give Telemachus as he grows into the future king?

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
