When we read about Odysseus's experience with the Cyclops, we talked about the "Road of Trials" and the series of tests that occur in the journey of a hero. How are "tests" an important part of the novel from the chapter "Return to Ithaca" to the end of the novel? Do these "tests" have a similar or a different purpose in the journeys of both Odysseus and the other significant characters?
