  • THIS QUOTE IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE TELEMACHUS IS YEARNING FOR HIS FATHER, ODYSSEUS TO RETURN. HE NEEDS HIS FATHER TO DRIVE THE SUITORS OUT OF HIS HOUSE BECAUSE HE CANNOT. RIGHT AS TELEMACHUS IS THINKING THIS, ATHENA TURNS UP AT HIS HOUSE. AS HE IS WISHING FOR HIS DAD, SOMEONE ELSE TRYING TO HELP HIM COMES DOWN INSTEAD. ALSO, ATHENA IS THERE TO GIVE HIM COURAGE TO DRIVE THE SUITORS OUT SO HIS DAD DOESNT HAVE TO COME BACK AND DO IT HIMSELF.
  • "HE COULD ALMOST SEE HIS MAGNIFICENT FATHER, HERE... IN THE MINDS EYE-IF ONLY HE MIGHT DROP FROM THE CLOUDS AND DRIVE THESE SUITORS OUT...."
  • IN THIS SCENE, TELEMACHUS IS DEBATING WHETHER TO ASK ATHENA OF HIS FATHER. IT IS THE ONE THIS THAT HAS BEEN ON HIS MIND CONSTANTLY ALL THESE YEARS. IT IS THE ONE THING THAT COULD DRIVE ALL OF THE SUITORS AWAY. TELEMACHUS PAMPERS ATHENA IN HIS HOUSE AS HE IS TRYING TO COVER UP THE MOB OF SUITORS TO MAKE A GOOD IMPRESSION ON HER.
  • "HE HOPED, WHATS MORE, TO ASK HER ABOUT HIS LONG-LOST FATHER. A MAID BROUGHT WATER SOON IN A GRACEFUL GOLDEN PITCHER AND OVER A SILVER BASIN TIPPED IT OUT SO THE MIGHT RINSE THEIR HANDS, THEN PULLED A GLEAMING TABLE TO THEIR SIDE.
  • "DEAR STRANGER, WOULD YOU BE SHOCKED BY WHAT I SAY? LOOK AT THEM OVER THERE. NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD, JUST LYRES AND TUNES! IT'S EASY FOR THEM, ALL RIGHT, THE FEED ON ANOTHER'S GOODS AND GO SCOT-FREE - A MANS WHOSE WHITE BONES LAY STREWN IN THE RAIN SOMEWHERE, ROTTING AWAY ON LAND OR ROLLING DOWN THE OCEANS SALTY SWELLS. BUT THAT MAN, IF THEY CAUGHT SIGHT OF HIM HOME IN ITHICA, BY GOD THEY'D ALL PRAY TO BE FASTER ON THEIR FEET THAN RICHER IN BARS OF GOLD AND HEAVY ROBES."
  • IN THIS SCENE, TELEMACHUS IN HINTING TO ATHENA IN A WAY TO TELL HIM ABOUT HIS FATHER. ALL HE WANTS I SHI SDAD TO COME BACK TO DRIVE THE SUITORS OUT OF HIS HOUSE. HE ALSO TELLS ATHENA THAT THEY HAVE SUCH EASY LIVES, BUT HE BASICALLY HAS THE SAME LIFE.
