The Odyssey

what motivated Odysseus to reveal his name and put his men in more danger?


He'll smash our timbers and our heads together!'

I would not heed them in my glorying sporit,

but let my anger flare are yelled:


if ever mortal man inquire

how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him

Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye:

Laertes' son, whose home's on Ithaca!'

Pride morivated Odysseus to anoounce himself. He wanted his heroics to be remembered.
