There is a lot of talking in Book 7. However, it also marks the end of this episode: Odysseus’ travel from Ogygia to Phaeacia – he is almost home. Now comes the fun bit… 😉
The Odyssey, Book 6. Lots of talking and cultural detail, especially about women. And subtext.
So, time to get started on that GCSE revision! I hope this is still fun to read, despite being aimed at my students and what they need to know about this chapter for the exam.
