Odyssey I-IV reflection

I am enjoying this book more than I anticipated. One thing that sticks out to me is how the gods don’t seem all-knowing , all-powerful (hence how Proteus was defeated) or all-seeing (hence how Athena has decided to help Odysseus w)hile Poseidon is in Africa). It also sticks out that they’re not all portrayed as benevolent (Poseidon).

One thought on “Odyssey I-IV reflection”

  1. Ya, I thought so too. When I think of a god of gods, I think invincible and perfect. But they seem very human in this poem.
