765 words - 3 pages

Parker LaceyMarch 25 2014Part 1:The poem Ithaca is a metaphor for a trip or vacation of sorts. Ithaca is a poem based off of the epic adventure of Odysseus. In Ithaca the say "When you start on your journey to Ithaca then pray that the road is long,full of adventure, full of knowledge." they are saying such to represent the journey home after a vacation or trip.
