Jamal & Odysseus

  1. 1. Jamal and Odysseus<br /> Vs. <br />By:Annabell Lee<br />
  2. 2. A little background to catch us up…<br />Your Text Here<br />
  3. 3. Odysseus<br />Odysseus<br />
  4. 4. So, what does this rich, Greek warrior have in common with an 18 year-old boy from the slums?<br /> While comparing Odysseus and Jamal, there were a few connections that I noticed:<br />Both Odysseus and Jamal had to travel abroad before returning to their true loves.<br />Both had to use their wits to solve problems.<br />
  5. 5. Call to Adventure<br />When Jamal calls to be on the show “Who<br />Wants to Be a Millionaire?”. He gets accepted<br />and prepares to go on the show.<br />
  6. 6. Call to adventure:<br />Odysseus was still stranded on the Island of<br />Calypso when Calypso received word that Zeus<br />had declared war on him. He was to be released<br />from the island.<br />
  7. 7. Helper/Amulet<br />His main helper is his brother Salim, although<br />Salim betrays him several times. His other<br />helpers are the people in the game show<br />audience. He has several people who pretend to<br />help him but really betray him. <br />
  8. 8. Helpers/Amulet<br />Athena<br />Sailors<br />Hermes<br />Calypso (maybe?)<br />
  9. 9. Crossing the Threshold<br />Jamal did not know the answer to the final<br />question. During the break, the game show host<br />fed Jamal a wrong answer. Jamal did not fall for<br />his trick.<br />
  10. 10. Crossing the Threshold<br />Odysseus leaves the Island of Calypso and<br />begins his journey home.<br />
  11. 11. Tests<br />Answering the questions on the game show<br />Surviving without a mother or father<br />Finding a way to make money<br />Finding a way to reach Latika<br />
  12. 12. Tests<br />Fighting the Cyclops<br />Surviving the sirens<br />Surviving the wrath of Poseidon<br />Winning the competition for Penelope<br />Odysseus was given a bag of wind that should have delivered him home. His sailors opened the bag and it sent them to the wrong place.<br />
  13. 13. Climax<br />When Latika sees Jamal on the television and<br />goes after him. They finally reunite.<br />
  14. 14. Climax/Final Battle<br />Odysseus disguised as a beggar and killed all other suitors and their maids. He won the competition for Penelope just in time.<br />
  15. 15. Flight<br />Jamal answered the question correctly, even<br />though the game show host fed him an incorrect<br />answer. The host accused Jamal of cheating and<br />he was arrested and beaten until he could prove<br />himself innocent. After that, he returned to the<br />show.<br />
  16. 16. Flight<br />Odysseus goes to his father’s farm in order<br />to prove his identity.<br />
  17. 17. Return<br />Jamal answered the final question correctly and<br />had to return to his “average” life. I guess you<br />could not really call it average, though. Now he<br />had 20 million rupees. <br />
  18. 18. Return<br />Family and friends of the suitors and sailors<br />came after Odysseus but Athena protected him,<br />yet again.<br />
  19. 19. Elixir<br />Jamal and Latika end up together. She is out of<br />danger and he no longer suffers from poverty.<br />
  20. 20. Elixir<br />Ithaca is finally at peace again.<br />
