Project for Isabella Hills -- 42972

Hi Isabella Hills, I noticed your profile and would like to offer you my project. We can discuss any details over chat.

Examine and analyze the role of divinity and the power of divine intervention in the Odyssey in comparison with the ways religion is perceived and interpreted in the other two works you’ve read after Homer’s epic: Canto 26 in Dante’s Inferno and Herodotus’ Histories Book 1.

the power of divinity differs in literary texts according to time periods and the manifestation of religious behavior in each of these periods. Keep in mind the transition from polytheism to monotheism (Homer - Dante), as well as the development of different polytheistic religious attitudes from Homer to Herodotus.

The best way to apply your findings and illustrate your points is to examine the impact of divine intervention (or the absence of it) in specific characters and/or events in the narratives. Part of the relationship of humanity with divinity (mortality with immortality) is the dialogue with the dead in the Homeric world, the divine judgment of heroic actions in Dante’s Christian context and the acceptance of man’s responsibility of his own actions in Herodotus’ time.

The paper should be about 3-4 pages in length and include a bibliography page. You are care about clarity of perspective and power of analysis, as well as grammar, structure and format. Every details counts.


As part of your research you are required to have at least five secondary sources. You are encouraged to use any of the chapters of The Return of Ulysses as secondary sources.
