Question:

Why is it important to include a clear thesis statement in an essay?

Answer:

A thesis statement establishes what your essay will be about and how the essay will be developed. It is, in other words, both a map and a promise made to your audience. The thesis tells your audience not only what you are going to say, but also how you are going to say it and some of the evidence you plan to use.

Question:

Women in classical literature are often shown as subversive forces. Describe one example from Homer's Odyssey of a woman acting outside of norms or being otherwise subversive.

Answer:

In Homer's Odyssey, women often play a supporting role in the journey that Odysseus takes. Although these female characters are often helpful to the hero and central to the plot, their assistance often seems to be somehow subversive: their actions reveal that they have pushed beyond the boundaries of typical behavior for women in the classical world. One example of this is the behavior of the nymph Circe both threatens and aids Odysseus and his men. Circe is a force for good in that she prepares the crew for the next phase of their journey, but she is also a subversive force since she detains Odysseus on her island and distracts him from the journey that he is taking. Furthermore, Circe herself is a woman who lives alone and fends for herself, and, in doing so, violates many social norms, including marriage and proper rites of hospitality. She demonstrates the former by developing a relationship with Odysseus and the latter by initially turning Odysseus' crew into pigs rather than offering them hospitality. Although Circe is ultimately an ally to Odysseus, she is also a subversive and potentially dangerous force. It is only through the intervention of the male divinity Hermes that her power is harnessed for Odysseus' benefit.
