The Odyssey

Based on the epic simile, the reader should envision Penelope as a queen who is?

"My lady, never a man in the wide world

should have a fault to find with you. Your name

has gone out under heaven like the sweet

honor of some god-fearing king, who rules

in equity over the strong: his black lands bear

both wheat and barley, fruit trees laden bright,

new lambs at lambing time- and the deep sea

gives great hauls of fish by his good strategy,

his folk fare well."
