EN 2273 World Lit Notes for Tuesday January 26 Genesis was the journal title; Quiz Thursday   Dr. Redd emphasized the difference in the flood narratives. Notice how Noah’s God, the  Hebrew God told Noah about the flood and made sure that Noah knew what to do to  prepare for the flood versus Gilgamesh found out about the flood through eavesdropping.  Also the flood story is a recreation story. Hebrew God decided to start over with the  human race with Noah and his wife as the new first humans.   Hebrew God also sets divisions and hierarchies unlike the Greek gods. The Hebrew Bible is also full of moral codes of conduct o Abraham; be kind to and do not kill strangers, you never know when you will be  blessed o Noah; be obedient to God and loyal to your family o Moses; the ten commandments which are still used today, #1 is now the “Golden  Rule”  The Bible also holds a lot of answers to why we should not do things and holds answers  to strange phenomenon such as the Rainbow.   Notice the characters in the Bible; not all of them are good people. In fact God likes to  use underdogs and lowly/disobedient people to do his work. Why is this? o Joseph; flawed, interesting and cunning.  o Moses; speech impediment th EN 2273 World Lit Notes for Thursday January 28 Odyssey Books 1­4; quiz was today. Next quiz is Thursday Feb 4 We threw around a lot of thoughts in class today to further explore with the Odyssey.  Telemachus; who raised him until now? Why does he have to go on this journey? (so he  can become a man, essentially have his manhood tested) o Why won’t Telemachus marry off his mom and send the suitors away?  The kick start of the story is that Telemachus is finally old enough to do  something about these suitors.   Athena: remember who she is, he favor with Telemachus actually comes from the fact  that she favors Odysseus.  o Why doesn’t she tell Telemachus where his father is? o Are Athena and Odysseus related? Probably not, Athena is a true god and  Odysseus just is honorable and has extreme human strength. He is therefore  compared to the gods but should not be one so they are not related.   Penelope and Helen o Penelope has all these suitors going after her.   Antinos, Eurymachus, Menelous, Mestor, Orestes, etc.   Penelope is still staying faithful to her husband,   Why doesn’t she tell the suitors to leave? Because Odysseus is not  officially dead but he has not returned. Therefore she can neither stop men courting her as a woman, nor can her husband defend her, but her father  cannot/will not take her back to his home until she is officially a widow.  o Helen was not loyal, she is the reason the war started in the first place yet men  still seem to sing her praises. Why is this?
