    Trojan war

    Trojan war
    The Trojan War begins with Paris, a Trojan prince, who kidnaps the beautiful Helen of Sparta. The Greek Spartans hold Troy under siege for ten years. To end the stalemate, Odysseus comes up with a plan. Odysseus hides himself and his men inside a giant wooden horse and leave it in front of the gates of Troy. The Trojans accepted the horse as a peace offering and thought the trojans quit. The horse is brought inside the city and the Greek men spring from the horse and attack. analysis

    Bag of wind analysis

    I say in bag of winds Odysseus can go home because the bag of wind is going to take him home. But he can't use it because his men opened the bag and thought money was in there son all the wind out of the bag is gone so now they don't have a way home.

    Lotus Eaters

    Lotus Eaters
    The crew lands near the land of the Lotus Eaters. Odysseus sends two men to see what the natives are like. The natives devour a certain kind of magic lotus. The lotus causes anyone who eats it to become infatuated with it and not want to return home. The scouts fall victim to the plant and Odysseus forcibly brings them back to the ship. The crew sets sail again.

    circe analysis

    I say Odysseus should had went with his men to meet Circe because it took him a year to convince her that she should turn his men back. But it probably would have taken him longer if he didn't know his men were pigs. Then he had to stay on the Circe island for a year because she didn't wanna turn his men back so it was like another year away from his wife.

    Cyclopes

    Cyclopes
    Odysseus and his men steal food and other items from the Cyclopes cave. I learned that Odysseus escapes death by blinding the Cyclopes. I learned that the plan was to steal the items and leave, but Odysseus was curious on how the Cyclopes looked. Odysseus and his men were trapped in the Cyclopes cave. To distract the Cyclopes Odysseus gives them wine and stabs him in the eye. Odysseus and his men escapes the cave by hiding under the sheep.

    Sirens

    Sirens
    Odysseus was returning home from the Trojan war but to get home he and his crew had to sail through the sirens island. Now Greek mythology said that if any man who hears the sirens will be drawn to the island and will never be able to leave. Before he sailed through the sirens he talked to Circe who told him to cover his men ears and his ears with ear wax.
