A self-study and/or revision Resource complete with Answers Section, this Resource is fully photocopiable by the purchasing institution. It aims to engage students through content questions, True/False exercises, pair work and debate. The 'Points to ponder' sections occasionally interrupt the questions on the narrative to allow students to think about the poet's narrative technique, and to discuss and comment on the characters and on the action as it unfolds. The Resource seeks to reinforce understanding of the role of the gods, of the way in which these are presented by the poet, and of the part they play in the lives and destinies of the characters. In the Answers Section, except where their purpose is to promote accuracy, answers take the form of open-ended questions offering various points of view intended to encourage critical thinking and debate. Emphasis is laid on the importance of xenia, and Odysseus' qualities as a leader are explored from different aspects, the aim being to help candidates form their own opinions.

Students are reminded throughout of the importance of supporting answers with detailed and accurate textual reference, and of keeping in mind the poem's cultural and social context.
