Paradise and Death

I thought this essay was pretty well laid out. It was easy to understand and to the point. Averil liked it a lot I think…

Erm… I guess the most interesting part was that there were 3 ‘paradises’ and ‘temptations’. I never thought of it this way, and it shows how Odysseus goes through different stages of learning. I also liked how it was later referred to normal humans and how it could be linked. Reading this essay was kind of like looking at Odysseus from a distance so I think I was able to seem notice him in a new way.

Mr Macknight wrote that people would be tempted to try the lotus eaters at least once. I thought of this kind of like drugs / smoking / alcohol in our life. Who wouldn’t want to try it just once, and then give it up afterwards.
