"By heaven! when she vomited all the sea was like a cauldron seething over intense fire when the mixture suddenly heaves and rises."
Perseverance or persistence is a big theme in Odysseus' travels after the Trojan War and especially in Book Twelve. In the beginning of Book Twelve, Odysseus learns from Circe of the next creatures he and his crew will encounter on their journey home to Ithaca. Odysseus decides to keep this information to himself in the hope that his men will continue their great work and not become scared. Once the ship comes upon these monsters, Odysseus encourages his men and gives them confidence. The men are scared by what they see, but understand the confidence their captain has in them and continue their journey. With enough perseverance, Odysseus makes it home, even though his crew is dead, he would be too if it wasn't for them.
