In the Odyssey written by Homer Odysseus learned a lot about himself and what he had to do to become a better overall human The adventures he goes on I think opens his eyes to a world in which he thought he was invincible With the Odyssey Odysseus learned a big lesson in humility The greatest example of this is in the last five books or so within the story He has to dress act and live like a beggar in order to regain everything he had lost While he was a beggar the suitors treated him horribly Antinous leader of the suitors was the worst of them all He was the first to mistreat Odysseus and planned to kill Telemachus He was also the one that would abuse him physically and verbally for some time to come Also if that werent enough he planned a boxing match for Odysseus to be in to watch him get beat up All this was happening and the other suitors were most likely following their leader in whatever he was doing Odysseus had to control himself the whole time this was happening If he had lost his temper the suitors would have killed him his son and most likely taken over the kingdom That didnt happen though Odysseus learned self-control and humility He may not be perfect at it but going through all the humility made him a better man Along the same topic he was a king going through this humility It would be one thing for a peasant to go through it but a king This made it even harder for Odysseus He had rank above all the suitors and could rightly kick them out of his kingdom Instead he waits for the right time and kills them all The pre-journey Odysseus would of thought of himself invincible and probably would have died trying to get his kingdom back Along the same line as humility comes
