We discussed the beginning of Odysseus’s campaign against the suitors today – just a few more days until his epic battle!

In class, we read a speech by Barack Obama on the importance of fatherhood, and connected it to Odysseus’ absence from his son’s life. (obama-fathers-day-speech-with-odyssey-reading-guide)

Homework for tonight is to read Books 21 and 22 (12-books-21-and-22) and to complete the reading guide (books-21-and-22-reading-guide).
