Lastly, an affluence of passion is expressed by the women of the Aeneid while the women of the Odyssey remain relatively mundane and characterless. Primarily, the 'parting women', Calypso of the Odyssey and Dido of the Aeneid, can be considered the climax of each poem's sorrowful passion. Of course, in the Odyssey, Odysseus and Penelope's personal remembrances of their times together, and Circe's, the witch-goddess's, release of Odysseus can also be other possible moments of passion. However, the husband and wife's thoughts are rarely spoken outright and there are only glimpses of such emotions. Also, Circe's domain, unlike Calypso's island, is occasionally visited by unfortunate sailors - whom she turns into swine - and consists of far more interesting buildings, jungles and animals, which provide her with entertainment other than Odysseus. Therefore, it can be said that Calypso feels the most expressible sadness in the Odyssey. But this minor goddess, who is more a nymph, gives Odysseus the permission to build ships for his departure, simply following orders from Zeus. She even lends Odysseus her tools and supervises the building of the ships. Even though she should be able to express all sorts of pain, the Greek portrayal of women only allows her to show her sentiments through leaving a sac of dainties Odysseus had enjoyed in midst of other supplies.

Through the women of the Odyssey the story Odysseus’s nostos is woven, they are the warp threads

among the divine and semi-divine women of the Odyssey is assured

choice to pursue his nostos and his success in this is just as dependant on the kerdos of his noos26 as his kleos for being the sacker of troy was27. Odysseus’ noos allows the women of the odyssey to craft the story of his nostos, framed within their own domain and symbolic of the skills that cause greek women live on through song. Just as the Iliad illustrates what made Greek men live on in fame the Odyssey is told around Greek woman, the qualities that made them deserveing of kleos or infamy. By passing by them the story is told and through their impact a pattern is made manifest.

NOT = Miscellaneous history. The unnumbered volumes, catalogued under Mitchell Carroll [1870-1925] though no general editor is named, weave lives of notable women into narrative histories and comparative sociological interpretation. Greek Women is first, and Women of America is last. John A. Burgan is named as the “publisher's editor” (Schoenfeld xi). See my chapter five. In Volume I: Greek Women, the table of contents, as follows, gives a picture of the approach: topical history of Greek womanhood from the Heroic Age to the Roman times, with some individual biographies (Sappho, Aspasia, and Aphrodite): I. Greek Women; II. Women of the Heroic Age; III. Women of the Iliad; IV. Women of the Odyssey; V. The Lyric Age; VI. Sappho VII. The Spartan Woman; VIII. The Athenian Woman; IX. Aspasia; X. Aphrodite Pandemos; XI. The Woman Question in Ancient Athens; XII. The Greek Woman in Religion; XIII. Greek Women and the Higher Education; XIV. The Macedonian Woman; XV. The Alexandrian Woman.
