Today in class we read Book 12 of the Odyssey, in which Odysseus meets the Sirens, Scylla, and Charbydis (pages 1230-6 in the textbook).

(One point I want to make – you need to write your response explaining if his leadership style is consistent with the one that the author of “Solitude and Leadership” describes, not whether you believe that Odysseus is a leader or whether he is a good leader.)
