There is a quote from the crewman Eurylochos in book 10, lines 425-450 or so. Odysseus is urging his men to go up to Circe's palace now that he has "tamed' the Goddess. Eurylochos is still suspicious and says....... " So too it happened with the Cyclops (death & suffering), when our companions went into his yard and the bold Odysseus was of their company; for it was by this man's recklessness that these too perished". Basically Eurylochos blames Odysseus for the Cyclops episode and he is afraid that the crew will suffer again because of Odysseus' s insistence on staying on the island of Circe.

I wouldn't say he was a great leader. But if you have to do a report on him leading in music, perhaps say how he crossed racial and generation lines, crossed over from rock to gospel and than country. Just some suggestions. I don't care for him, but it he sounds cool now that I typed this!

Elvis influenced American culture in a big way. Look at the music that was popular in the early 1950s. It was very different until Elvis came along, and the music world hasn't been the same since. Here is something about a book you might want to look at: http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m2822/is_2_23/ai_61838450 Maybe you can get the book at your local library.

There are a couple good sections that show the lack of leadership besides the great quote up above. There is the neat part when Odysseus is taunting the Cyclops and he about kills them with the rock, and the Odysseus starts to taunt him again...and his men try to get him to stop. That is where is men actually become cursed. Another good episode that you haven't mentioned is that he doesn't tell him men about Charydbis and Scylla, but he takes measures to protect himself. And, lastly, a good leader gains his men's trust. It is obvious that his men don't trust him by the opening of the bag of wind, and obvious that they have stopped listening to him when the eat Helios's cattle.

Sounds like a homework to me again. Was this asked by your professor? You should be doing your own reading but here is a helpful link that can get you started on: http://www.stoa.org/hopper/text.jsp?doc=... Enjoy reading. If I were there and I really listened, I would probably get it on my own. Goodluck!
