This test should be given after a review of Part I of The Odyssey. It will check comprehension, knowledge of literary concepts, and will ask students to do some analytical thinking in an essay. The first few sections test their understanding of the roles of various characters and places in The Odyssey. The next section requires them to identify examples or definitions of literary concepts. The last section gives five different essay prompts that help them to develop ideas about the epic that are analytical, symbolic, and/or thematic.
