. For example, as he stays stranded on the island of Calypso, he never once thinks of anything but his homeland and wife. This, of course, shows loyalty to home. “His eyes were always tearful; he wept sweet life away, in longing to go back home...”
Another trait shown clearly by Odysseus is bravery and clear hotheadedness through the greatest of challenges. “Dear friends! We are experienced in danger. This is not worse than the time the Cyclops captured us and forced us to remain inside his cave. We got away that time, thanks to my skills and brain and strategy.Remember that.” This quote shows Odysseus rallying his troops even through atrial of great terror, where many of his crew members were shaking in their boots.
Odysseus stands strong and true as he speaks with the souls of those long since lost , even including his own mother and lost friend.
