Comparing and Contrasting the Journeys of Odysseus’ and Telemachus’ in The Odyssey

- Odysseus’ and Telemachus’ journeys or nostos were both very similar and different. They parallel each other in some ways but they are also completely different at other times. Telemachus starts as a younger, less mature boy, and without the presence of his father during his childhood, he becomes a timid, shy and spineless boy who is greatly pampered by his mother. He has even more to achieve, being the son of a world-famous father, and this is a very difficult reputation to live up to. His journey, and after that the killing of the suitors who took advantage of him really show how his journeys and problems throughout the book mature him from being a shy, timid boy into a mature man....   [tags: The Odyssey, compare and contrast]

The Age Of Age Within The United States

- In the United States, the age at which someone officially turns into an adult is eighteen. Although this holds true for many countries, it is not always the case. For example, the age of majority in Scotland and Japan is sixteen and twenty, respectively (ChartsBin). That alone dispels the notion that, in order to be an adult, one must first reach the magical age of eighteen. Age has nothing to do with adulthood. Emotional maturity is not a direct result of someone turning eighteen. It is expected for someone of that age to have it, given the type of freedoms that are granted to them....   [tags: Adult, Adulthood, United States, Gerontology]

Defining Maturity

- Maturity is commonly used word, but when asked what the word means many people simply shrug their shoulders. Maturity isn’t a word that has a clear definition.
