How are the Greek values of family and perseverance shown through Odysseus’s return home?

They are shown through the characters of Telemachus and Penelope. Penelope is still waiting for him and won't remarry even though there are many suitors, while Telemachus is still full of faith for the return of his father and really hates the suitors.

It is useless to try to indicate such things in writing, the facial expression, the intonation, the gestures; these are not things of words. Perhaps I can best indicate the direction of his mind, if not his manner, by the following: One night as we were on our way to a theater there stood on a nearby corner in the cold a blind man singing and at the same time holding out a little tin cup into which the coins of the charitably inclined were supposed to be dropped. At once my brother noticed him, for he had an eye for this sort of thing, the pathos of poverty as opposed to so gay a scene, the street with its hurrying theater crowds. At the same time, so inherently mischievous was his nature that although his sympathy for the suffering or the ill-used of fate was overwhelming, he could not resist combining his intended charity with a touch of the ridiculous. "Got any pennies?" he demanded. "Three or four." Going over to an outdoor candystand he exchanged a quarter for pennies, then came back and waited until the singer, who had ceased singing, should begin a new melody. A custom of the singer's, since the song was of no import save as a means of attracting attention to him, was to interpolate a "Thank you" after each coin dropped in his cup and between the words of the song, regardless. It was this little idiosyncrasy which evidently had attracted my brother's attention, although it had not mine. Standing quite close, his pennies in his hand, he waited until the singer had resumed, then began dropping pennies, waiting each time for the "Thank you," which caused the song to go about as follows: "Da-a-'ling" (Clink!—"Thank you!") "I am—" (Clink!—"Thank you!") "growing o-o-o-ld" (Clink!—"Thank you!"), "Silve-e-r—" (Clink!—"Thank you!") "threads among the—" (Clink!—"Thank you!") "go-o-o-ld—" (Clink! "Thank you!"). "Shine upon my-y" (Clink!—"Thank you!") "bro-o-ow toda-a-y" (Clink!—"Thank you!"), "Life is—" (Clink!—"Thank you!") "fading fast a-a-wa-a-ay" (Clink!—"Thank you!")—and so on ad infinitum, until finally the beggar himself seemed to hesitate a little and waver, only so solemn was his rôle of want and despair that of course he dared not but had to go on until the last penny was in, and until he was saying more "Thank yous" than words of the song. A passer-by noticing it had begun to "Haw-haw!", at which others joined in, myself included. The beggar himself, a rather sniveling specimen, finally realizing what a figure he was cutting with his song and thanks, emptied the coins into his hand and with an indescribably wry expression, half-uncertainty and half smile, exclaimed, "I'll have to thank you as long as you keep putting pennies in, I suppose. God bless you!" My brother came away smiling and content. However, it is not as a humorist or song-writer or publisher that I wish to portray him, but as an odd, lovable personality, possessed of so many interesting and peculiar and almost indescribable traits. In the passage, what is the effect of the blending of narrative reflection and storytelling? A. The beggar is shown to be deserving of Paul's ire. B. The narrator builds a richer, realistic image of Paul. C. The narrator believes Paul is cruel and dishonest. D. The point of view is disjointed between characters. E. The reader sees that Paul and Theodore are not close.

B. The narrator builds a richer, realistic image of Paul.

Through the narrator's reflection the reader is allowed more insight into who Paul is as a person. If the narrator were to only give a recount of the events, the reader's opinion of Paul may be very different. However, since we are told that Paul is a good person who like harmless mischief, the reader is less likely to think of Paul as evil for purposefully interrupting the man's singing. The other options are also just wrong. The beggar does not seem to be deserving of Paul's ire. The narrator does not think of Paul as cruel, just mischievous. It does seem that Paul and Theodore are close.


Why do you think American writers of subsequent literary periods often choose to break from traditions and seek more freedom in their artistic expression? Are writers justified in challenging the artistic status quo? Why or why not?

American writers often break from literary tradition because, the audience always wants something new, surprising, unusual, etc. Like anything else on this world Authors change. I believe that writers are justified in challenging the status quo because literacy is an art, and like any kind of art it evolves and changes creating new things. Any attempt to stop change is simply wrong and  insult against creativity.

Which steps should a writer take to establish a strong claim? Check all that apply. Identify the topic. List opposing topics. Decide on a viewpoint. State a position on the topic. Expose flaws in the evidence.

To compose an ideal case, or a Claim, you have to think about some vital factors.

Your claim should be contestable, open to contemplated contention and discussion. Preferably, your theory should concentrate on one primary thought. In the event that you have loads of smart thoughts regarding the matter yet are composing a short paper, pick what you believe is the most grounded or most essential contention and make it your postulation.

Considering this, the options most fitting are:

-Identify the topic.

-Decide on a viewpoint.

-State a position on the topic.
