Eastside - World Lit/comp class update

Today we learned about Calypso and read about Polyphemus and the island of the Cyclops.  The story of "The Odyssey" begins in media res - with a grown up Telemachus looking for his father.  It is not chronological.  We learned of Odysseus' adventures with the lotus eaters, Polyphemus, the gift of the winds from Aeolus, and the encounter with the Laestrygonians.  Next week we will begin with Circe the sorceress.
