My chapter 11 is not on those pages. However, the epic characteristics I would focus on are that Odysseus' journey into Hades is indeed a quest, in this case a quest for information. For Odysseus, one of his characteristics is that he is cunning which is a characteristic that he uses when he meets some of the souls there.
