The Test of the Great Bow

Learning Target: The meaning of a ‘rite of passage‘.

Update: Penelope finally gives in.  She explains the test of the Great Bow

  • Answer (10 pts): Why would she ‘test’ the suitors with a task that only Odysseus had previously done?  What is her strategy? 

Penelope is upset – crying while holding Odysseus bow.  She is taking a bit of a risk as she does not know if any of the suitors will be able to use the bow.  She is trying to find no one to replace Odysseus, but also attempt to see if someone is worthy.
