The Odyssey

what key detail should be added to strengthen the students paraphrasing of this excerpt?

My home is on the peaked sea-mark of Ithaca

under Mount Neion's wind-blown robe of leaves,

in sight of other islands- Dulichium,

Same, wooded Zacynthus- Ithaca

being most lofty in that coastal sea,

and northwest, while the rest lie east and south.

A rocky isle, but good for a boy's training;

I shall not see on earth a place more dear,


Odysseus's home is ithaca, a rocky island surrounded by

other islands. Odysseus considers Ithaca a great place in which to grow up.

Probably where it is located would be good.
