    Maturation of Tel " emakhos through The Odyssey The Odyssey is a great work in which many characters are developed through the ongoing trials and tribulations each of the characters face. To me, the most noteworthy character development within the epic is that of Tel " emakhos, Odysseus's son. Tel " emakhos is developed from the very beginning of the poem, when he is a shy boy simply walking in the shadows of his heroic father right up until the end where he is considered to be just as courageou...
