The Odyssey Book 5- Calypso
By: Carmen Espada
Follow me inside. I will tell you all about what happened.
Where am I? What happened?
Will you stay here with me forever and become my immortal?
I disagree with you. I think that is a very bad idea. I need to go back home to my family to take care of them.
Fine, I'll let him go, but this is not over.
Yes, I'm so happy. I can now go see my family. HURRAY!!!
LET HIM GO NOW!!! or there will be consequences.
Beginning: Odysseus goes out to the sea on a boat with his crew. Then his ship crashes. Odysseus then uses a raft and shores off into the water. Then he ends up on Calypso's island and is very confused.
Middle:Calypso tells him what happened and then falls in love with him. She asks him if he would stay with her forever and become her immortal , and he refuses. Then Calypso gets mad at him and keeps him with her for 7 years. She was then being very selfish.
End: After the 7 years, Zeus talks with Athena and tells him to tell Hermes to go get Odysseus. So, then Hermes left and went Calypso's island. Once he got there he commanded Calypso to let him go, so he could go home with his family. Calypso was then very sad and lonely.
