    The main themes of the Odyssey are homecoming and maturation through personal journeys. The protagonist, Odysseus is attempting to return home following the Trojan war and due to various temptations is kept from his nostos or homecoming. He is only able to return to Ithaka when he has balanced his desire for homecoming with his desire for glory, renown and has overcome the aspects of his personality which are contra to those of an agathos or great man. His son Telemacheus embarks on a similar journey to his father but his is a quest which is completed when he finally leaves boyhood for manhood. These are themes which are highly relevent to modern society and I m sure there are instances that you can think of which force fathers and sons to be apart, grow and return to be with each other. You will have no problems in contructing your essay I m convinced. Perhaps think of Penelope also and compare women s roles and they way it was and still is thought that they should behave. This could be an enlightening avenue.

    Read the book, it will help a lot. Better to do the work yourself and get it right than have someone else do it and get it wrong.
