the idea of the wooden horse

Ulysses was not only a fighter but a skilled warrior, Ulysses always come up with the plan specifically in crunch situations. Ulysses always keen to explore the world with the help of his army men, he conquered a number of empires as well. For Ulysses, Palladion was not the only reason for which he had to reach the city of Troy, but Ulysses also has to take Helen out from the city of Troy. The people of Troy believed that the sacred wooden statue of Athena is the main cause of their success; the wooden statue is believed to be found by the originator of Troy. Trojans never wanted Greeks to have the statue because they think losing the statue can be a curse and the advantage can be shifted to the Greeks if they will have it. Trojans never wanted to lose the statue they have. Using the sense of insecurity by the Trojans, Ulysses ordered to prepare a wooden horse, as a symbol of strength for the Trojans. It is the aspiration of the Athena that motivated Ulysses to develop the statue of the wooden horse.

The idea was to develop a large wooden horse so that there are a number of soldiers can hide into it. The wooden horse was developed with the exact design of statue of Athena. As soon as the carpenter’s completed the horse, the statue was taken onto the plain. The major problem was to make Trojans think that the statue of the horse is another gift from heaven and they should seek the inspiration from the statue. The Greek soldiers were already made to move inside the horse. Ulysses again came up with the plan that Greek army should be moving backward and then sail away towards the Island of Tenedos. But the only problem was to make Trojans think that they should take the statue with them. So along with the statue, Ulysses left another man named “Sinon”.

Sinon was assigned the duty to act as a slave and the enemy of the Greeks. Sinon had to convince the Trojans that he was left by the Greeks as the sacrificial dupe and he has nothing to do with the Greeks at all. To support the idea, Sinon used the old story of cock and bull. The story worked fine and Trojans convincingly took the wooden horse to the gates. The statue of the horse was hooked by the Trojans and the statue was dragged down the gates of the city Tory. The story somehow worked for the Ulysses and the Trojans started getting inspiration from the statue of the horse. The statue was placed closer to the temple of Athena; it was like a dream come true for the Trojans as they have been gifted by another wooden statue that can help them win wars against the Greeks. The Greek soldiers on the other hand were waiting for the right time to come out and during the night the Greek soldiers managed to open the gates for the Greek army and Ulysses finally got into city of troy and conquered it.…

How Ulysses tackled Sirens on his way home?

It took Ulysses almost 10 years after the war between Greece and Trojans to reach back home in Ithaca. Ulysses was a resourceful human being with the ability to lead from the front. Ulysses is said to be the kind of warrior that have fought with a number of famous characters. The ports he entered were friendly most of the time, but sometimes he had to face the deadliest of enemies. Ulysses was given twelve flasks of wine by the God Apollo; he was also blessed with other gifts by the God Apollo, other than the wine. Moving ahead, Ulysses and his fleet were hit by a storm, the storm threw them to the shores of lotus eaters. But Ulysses didn’t stay on that shore for too long and decided to keep on moving to the homeland.

After a while, Ulysses reached the island of the Cyclopes, Cyclopes is said to be one eyed giants, according to most of the historical writers. There were two kinds of the Cyclopes at that time, one was peaceful and the others were man-eating. Ulysses was prepared for the worst as he came across the island of the man-eating Cyclops. Cyclops is said to the God of the sea. Evaluating the situation, Ulysses thought of a plan, the plan was to make Cyclops drink wine as much as they can. As soon as the Cyclops was drunk, Ulysses men use olive wood to prepare some spikes. These spikes were later hardened enough to be used to against the Cyclops. The spikes were enough to blind the Cyclops, unable to see anything, Cyclops tried to catch the Ulysses and his men. Using the sheep, Ulysses and his men tied themselves to the bellies of the sheep and hence successfully escaped from the island of Cyclops. The cyclops as the God of the sea was furious by the treatment of Ulysses and cursed Ulysses. As a father of Poseidon, Cyclops called for help and asked father to make it sure that there are too many storms in the sea so that Ulysses and his men couldn’t reach Ithaca.

The journey continued and then Ulysses reached to the island of Aiolia. Like the Cyclops, Aiolia is the God of the winds. Unlike the treatment that Ulysses got from the Cyclops, Ulysses was welcomed and the island and awarded with the flask of the winds. The flask contained all the winds except for the wind that can take them home. Unfortunately, Ulysses men were unable control the curiosity and released the wind that took them to the island of Aiolia. The journey became more difficult when Ulysses and his men were attacked by the rocks led by Antiphates. Only a few of Ulysses men were alive when they reach the island of Circe. The Circe magic spell turned Ulysses men into swine but ultimately situation got under control when Ulysses used the plant given by Hermes to nullify the magic spell. Later on Circe and Ulysses became friends and Circe advised Ulysses not to hear the voices of Sirens, bird creatures with the head of the women. Ulysses ordered his men to use wax so that the siren voices could not reach them. He himself tied to the ship mast.…
