In this commentary, select a passage from The Odyssey, briefly put the
passage in the context of the work as a whole, and connect it to an
idea, principle, or example from Jonathan Shay’s book, Odysseus in
America. Feel free to agree or disagree with Shay’s idea or principle
and its connection to The Odyssey. Please quote both from The Odyssey
and from Shay’s book. You’ll find the complete bibliographic information
about Shay’s book below.
Shay, Jonathan. Odysseus in America: Combat Trauma and the Trials of
Homecoming. New York: Scribner, 2002.
Note: I meant to put only the book titles in italics here.
