Abstract

An examination of the pattern in which clothing is used as means of enhancing or concealing identification of characters in Homer, especially in the context of the Odyssey. In light of the general pattern observed in both the Iliad and the Odyssey, the paper attempts to identify the true use of Penelope's web.
