Although Telemachus knows that the suitors are doing wrong, he does not do anything about it.Telemachus foolishly hopes that his father, Odysseus, will come home and clean up the mess for which the suitors are to blame. Telemachus knows his father would handle the situation with the suitors in a much more aggressive manner.Odysseus will kill all of them for being treacherous beings, while Telemachus does nothing but whine.Homer says how Telemachus's "noble father might come back out of the blue, drive the suitors headlong from the house, and so reign his royal honours, and reign over his once more."
It is not until Telemachus receives divine attention that he begins to mature. Athene, the Goddess of the flashing eyes, appears and encourages and advises the young and immature Telemachus on how to handle his affairs wit…
