Works Cited Bassett, Samuel E. "Athena and the Adventures of Odysseus." The Classical Journal 7th ser.

The Classical Journal 3rd ser. 65 (1969): 109-16. Web. This one gives a different set of thought on the relation between Telemachus and Athena. It explores more of the relation and of why Athena took such way of helping Telemachus. It will enable me to delve into more about the divine intervention in the Odyssey. Clay, Jenny Strauss. The Wrath of Athena: Gods and Men in the Odyssey. Princeton, NJ: Princeton UP, 1983. Print. The author talks about the hierarchical relationship between the mortals and the god, Athena. Also, the book demonstrates the vulnerability of men to the Homeric gods. It gives deeper thought of the relation between Odysseus and Athena rather than what is just showed on the text. Marks, J. Zeus in the Odyssey. Washington, D.C.: Center for Hellenic Studies, Trustees for Harvard University, 2008. Print. The role of Zeus in this book is depicted in a different way than the other interpreter would do. Its author, Jim Marks, tries to show that Zeus, in the hands of the singer, is the character responsible for giving narrative unity to the poem. Not only that, the author also gives the role of Zeus in the plot itself. Murrin, Michael. "Athena and Telemachus." International Journal of the Classical Tradition 13.4 (2007): 499-514. Print. The article talks about the relation between Athena and Telemachus. Basically, the author argues that Athena acted as a psychological mentor of Telemachus thereby enabling Telemachus to be more mature and be adult. Not only that, the author lists a few more roles that Athena played in the Odyssey.
