Becoming a man The goal attempted by all young boys but achieved by few Around the age of fifteen the dream of going on some adventure and risking death to prove bravery is envisioned in our heads and we go crazy We scan every moment of our teenage lives for a chance at manhood and in some form or other we all get one Usually it isnt an extravagant adventure as wed like but some menial task we have to settle for For Telemachos on the other hand its the quest of a lifetime To sail off in search of his father to protect his home and defend his mother What more could a boy ask for Sure the odds were against him Sure he could have been killed But did that stop Telemachos No way With the help of Athena he sailed off as a boy and returned as a man Our first impression of Telemachos is a skinny whiney helpless little boy Men have invaded his house taken his food and are wooing his mother Athena comes and visits him to ask of his situation He cowardly tells her These men eating up my substance waste it away and soon they will break me myself to pieces p33 lines 250-251 Obviously Telemachos is still too young to take charge So Athena suggests he go sail and seek word of his fathers condition The next day he calls a meeting of the town council and asks for help He receives none This is the decisive moment when he chooses to go out and be a man So Telmachos decides to do it alone mind you now
