Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?

Not only was the odyssey the first book in the world, but it was the only book in the world for at least a thousand years... A slight exaggeration but you have to remember that Palamedes who invented half the alphabet was a crewman on Odysseuses ship, so it probably still took a while until "writing" really took off, and the Odyssey was perhaps the only book worth remembering, and really after the oarators stuck 2000 pages of homer into their brain, was thier really much room for much more?
