A guide to writing introduction paragraphs
According to Edmund Burke, “next to love, sympathy is the divinest passion of the human heart.” When one is sympathetic, he or she tends to be compassionate and understand another person’s point of view. Calypso in Homer’s TheOdysseyloves Odysseus, but she is forced to let him sail home. As a result of Zeus’ cruel decree, Calypso is left to live a lonely life alone on her island without the company of her loved one. Although Calypso is portrayed as obsessive and selfish in The Odyssey by Homer, she is deserving of sympathy as demonstrated by her actions, her thoughts, and her emotions.
