Essay 3: The Odyssey, Reckoning: Justice or Revenge

The last twelve chapters of The Odyssey detail Odysseus’s reintegration back to society, Telemachus’s transition to manhood status, and Penelope’s vindication for her patient waiting. Everything ends with a clean sweep of righting past wrongs and rewarding faithfulness. The actions in these chapters allow us to question justice and revenge, or whether the actions are most clearly taken to make things right or to satisfy the character’s lust for revenge. Write an essay that defends whether the actions of one of the above characters is motivated by justice or revenge.

Use examples from the Faegles translation, giving page and line numbers for each summary or quotation and indicate who the speaker is of each example. Be sure to defend your choices with reasons and explanations. It is not enough to just point to scenes. Also be sure to proofread your essay carefully before submitting it. The essay needs to be saved as a .doc or .docx before it will upload properly. You can do this through Google Docs if you don’t have Word.

 

The completed essay should be 700 words or more.
