    Sirens

    Sirens
    Sirens sit in their meadow filled with rotting bodies, waiting for ships to come by. They sing irresistible songs that make the men come to their doom, Circe tells Odysseus to plug his men's ears with wax so that no man is tempted to steer the ship off course.
    the sirens are fated to die if sailors were to hear their song and escape. So after Odysseus' ship passes by, the sirens fling themselves into the sea and are drowned.

    Sirens pt2

    Sirens pt2
    analysis- the men approach Scylla and Charybdis and promptly lose their oars in fear, them taking a large block of beeswax, a gift from Circe, Odysseus breaks it into small pieces and gives one to each of his men. He tells them to soften it and put it into their ears is something they gained because they could've died, with him putting the wax in their ears shows his loyalty to him men and how much he doesn't want them to do, it also shows how Odysseus goes through alot to get to what he wants.

    analysis - He ordered his men to avoid Charybdis, and forcing them to pass near Scylla, which resulted in the deaths of six of his men. so you can say that is something he lost and once again he shows leadership and I feel like that is the best thing they gained a leader, and being a leader
