Telemakhos of The Odyssey
Telemakhos, Odysseus's child, finally knows that to be able to preserve his estate he must fill in his father's shoes or boots and grow up. Telemakhos not simply needs to try this for himself, but for his father who will be still with your life. Telemakhos became a man his father would be happy with.
Twenty years in the past Odysseus still left for Troy, leaving Telemakhos without a fatherly figure since having been an infant. He spent my youth a mommy's boy being unsure of his position in the kingdom because Odysseus was a long way away. Telemakhos recognizes that all the men looking to court his mother, Penelope, only wish control of his kingdom. Zeus, King of the God's, gives his daughter, Athena permission to encourage Telemakhos to fall under his dads shoes and become the man he was meant to be. "For my part, My spouse and i shall visit Ithaka to set more valor in the kid, and bring about him. "(211 &212) In ways Zeus and Athena are doing what Odysseus could not become there to perform.

" (218) "Odysseus was not the only one in Troy not to know the day of his homecoming. Others, how many others, shed their lives! " (218) Telemakhos then simply went to his mother's suitors and advised them "At daybreak we need to sit down in assembly and i also shall inform you-take this as you will-you are to leave this area. " (218) This was incredibly stunning to all the suitors because Telemakhos had no male direction and they considered who had invoked him to consider back his home and inheritance.
The suitors asked Telemakhos in the event the God's were "teaching you this high and enormous manner. " (218) Telemakhos justified himself by expressing "all We insist on is that I rule our house and rule the slaves my father won for me.
