Please identify the question to which you are responding by writing its number at the top of your essay.

Please explain his argument for demonstrating this theory and discuss in detail three points that he makes to prove it. 2. Bernhard Frank states that in Homers Odyssey, we do not meet Odesseus until Book Five. He states that because of this delay, we are able to focus on the comparison of Penelope and Calypso. From your knowledge of the text, please compare and contrast these two characters. 3. Based on what you have learned about Homers Odyssey during this semester, please write a detailed essay that discusses the point that Prof. Edwin D.
