In the poem The Odyssey by Homer a guy, Odysseus, goes on a journey with his crew in search for treasure. On their way they have to face a lot of conflicts and trials. One of their trials is interfacing the Cyclops. The Cyclops is out with his sheep and Odysseus, with his crew, go into the cave not knowing the cave belonged to the Cyclops. The way they got on the island in thefirst place is because Odysseus wanted to see the cavemen. Not knowing where they were going ended up in the Cyclops’ cave. As they were in the Cyclops’ cave messing around with all of his things the Cyclops showed up and shut the rock door not knowing that Odysseus and his crew were in the cave. When he turned around he was shocked to see that there were humans in his cave because all the humans were scared of him for humans is what the Cyclops eats whenever he can. He sits down to eat Odysseus and his crew but before he could Odysseus side-tracked the Cyclops and asked him if he has ever drinkin wine. The Cyclops replies “no” and so Odysseus gives him a glass. The Cyclops enjoys it and thanks Odysseus. He then grabs one of Odysseus’ guys and eats him. The rest of the crew and Odysseus get scared. But being as brave and prideful as he was he made a plan to get out. Since they were too small and weak to open the rock door they had to figure something out to where the Cyclops opens the rock door but not knowing that Odysseus and his crew are not leaving. So Odysseus come up with this plan to carve a large wood spear and jab it through the Cyclops’ eye. So Odysseus did so and the Cyclops became blind in his eye. The Cyclops feels his way to the rock door and pushes it open. Odysseus and his crew start trying to get without the Cyclops knowing. Most of the crew gets out but the Cyclops knows that they are getting out along with his sheep and catches some of the guys in the crew and eats them. Odysseus and most of his crew get out and get back to the boat and his cre…

Homer's epic poem The Odyssey, tells the story of the famous Greek hero Odysseus.Odysseus was one of the greatest fighters in the Trojan War, but sadly underwent many challenging trials before finally returning home to his family, consisting of his wife, Penelope, and his son, Telemachos.The poem takes the reader on various adventures and tells the reader numerous stories which gives the reader insight into Odysseus' character and the themes of the poem.The Coen Brothers' movie O Brother Where Art Thou?, which is based on Homer's poem, takes place in America during the 1930s.Ulysses Everett McGill escapes with two of his fellow convicts, Pete Hogwallop and Delmar O'Donnell, from their Mississippi chain gang.Similarly, Ulysses wishes to return home to his wife, Penny McGill, who is soon to be re-married, and his daughters.The movie, too, revolves around an exciting journey that leads Ulysses home.Throughout both pieces of art there are many important themes, and although they are more dominant in The Odyssey, they are still acknowledged in the movie O Brother Where Art Thou?The three most critical themes in The Odyssey that are touched upon in O Brother Where Art Thou? as well are hospitality, temptation, and disguise.
Hospitality is an essential theme is both the poem and the movie.These works share this theme, which serves as a transitional device between settings, characters, and morals.In The Odyssey hospitality is constantly being exhibited by the characters.For example, Kalypso shows Odysseus hospitality by seemingly allowing, but actually forcing him, to stay on her island.Longing to return home to his family Odysseus, "was detained by the queenly nymph Kalypso, bright among goddesses, in her hollowed caverns, desiring that he should be her husband" (I, 14-15).Although he is being detained against his will, Kalypso shows him kindness and cares for him throughout hi…
