Odysseus is a descendant of god and human who has both superhuman powers of the gods and unavoidable defect of human beings. He blinded Polyphemus’ only eye before, angering Poseidon and being cursed by him. However, he determined to set off home unhesitatingly. He encountered various difficulties and obstacles on his way home, but he dared to revolt to the gods, ghosts and monsters. He has faced death for several times, but he clinged to his aim with strong faith. Meanwhile, he was also temped by beauty, but he didn’t stop his pace home. In my opinion, he had a goal and endeavored in it with unremitting efforts, which are what we should learn from him. Although our life is full of challenges and temptations, we should overcome them for the final target.
