In the epic poem, The Odyssey, written by Homer, Odysseus shows that he is a dynamic character. After the devasting war, Odysseus faces hardships while he goes back home to Ithaca. He experiences many challenges that led to him becoming a changed man. He starts off as a careless, reckless man then changed into a more careful person with extra caution.
After leaving Aeaea (2nd time), Odysseus makes it obvious that his attentive personality helps him get out of complicated messes. His personality of creativness is also joined with his attentive trait. The Sirens sing a song, that lure sailors to their destruction. Odysseus made bits of bees wax and put it into his crew members ears, so they won’t be able to hear the song. Odysseus told them to tie him up to the mast and everytime he wants tries to break away, pull the rope tighter. (ll,707 to 715). In the Sirens, Odysseus told his men what was to come that was foretold by Circe. When they face these creatures, they can be careful and cautious to see what is going on and they won’t start paniking (ll,686 to 692). In the Cyclops, Odyessues thinks of an idea that can get him and his men out of the cave. They his in between each sheep tied together. “I tied them gently together, twining cords of willow from the ogre’s bed then slung a man under each middle one…”(ll. 378 to 381).
After sailing from the Sirens, Odysseus faces a new challenge, but with his alertness combined with his slyness he overcame the challenge. Odysseus was heading into a dilemma and he told his crew members that they went through a lot together and they got out of their hardships. They also have the King of Gods, Zeus, to help them (ll, 766 to 781). Odysseus had to be very careful on what decision had to choose. If he goes through the Scylla, then 6 of his men will die. But, if he goes through Charybdis then it would probably take everyone or no one at all. He chooses the Scylla. (ll, 803 to 814).Odyseeus knew...
