The Odyssey, is a 'Commentary' on Homer and his Epic Poem. Denton Snider, was deceased by 1924. No matter, his work and the work his work is based on are both timeless. Snider's approach to Homer mirrors Homer's approach to his hero, Ulysses. We learn from Snider that Homer intuitively recognized the key role self reliance plays in determining mans' fate. We learn that wisdom and suffering are two sides of the same coin. Somehow, Homer's consciousness was ethical in that, while believing in deities, it was man's character that shaped his destiny. Ulysses is the intellectual hero and we are his descendents.
