I just need a 1 paragraph answer to the below essay questions.
1.Discuss two situations in which Odysseus loses control over his men. Why does Homer allow Odysseus to be seen as an ineffectual leader at times?
2.Do you think Penelope was meant to serve as a role model for Greek women during Homer’s time? Would any problems arise from a woman then identifying with Penelope?
3.The Odyssey has been described as Odysseus’s search for his own identity. Discuss two incidents that force Odysseus to come to terms with who he is.
4.Discuss Athena’s role in the last part of the Odyssey (Books 19 – 23). What specifically does Athena do and not do? Comment on the different relationships she has with Odysseus, Telemachus, and Penelope.
5.Defend the argument that the Odyssey is more about Telemachus than Odysseus.
6.In the Bhagavad Gita, how does Krishna inspire Arjuna to return to battle using a philosophy that can be described in some sense as “passive”?
7.Compare how the Bhagavad Gita and the Analects of Confucius are both intended to maintain the social order.
