    Theme of Justice in the Odyssey and the Bible Justice is a theme that differs in many different texts, and this also true in the Odyssey and the Bible.  Justice in Homeric texts was served to neutralize a situation and bring things back to the way they were, to a time of stability and respect for authority.  The bible has usually been interpreted, however, as serving justice on a moral basis, as a way to punish those who did not respect each other or act in God likeness. The Greeks in the Odyssey

    Blessing and Vultures In the poems ‘Blessing’ and ‘Vultures’, the poets both use vivid descriptive language to create pictures and moods. In ‘Blessing’, the poet begins the second stanza with the word ‘imagine’. This word involves the reader and tells them to create a mental picture of the scene. He uses lots of onomatopoeia in this stanza. Words like ‘drip’ and ‘splash’ create an image of a small amount of water falling into a tin mug. This also creates a mood of thirst and drought.
