O Brother, Where Art Thou? Easter Egg - The Odyssey
Throughout the movie there are several paralells to Homers 'The Odyssey'. In the classic epic Odysseus encounters many hardships while on his journey. Including a Cyclops and Sirenes that attemp to draw his ship in to be destroyed against the jagged rocks. In the movie our three main characters also encounter similar characters. 'Big Dan' T., the supposed Bible salesmen, has only one eye, a parallel to the cyclops. Also our characters are drawn in by the singing of three beautiful women who are bathing in the river. Our main characters fal for the women and they give them moonshine and attempt to turn them in to the Police. Again, this parallels the Odyssey with the Sirenes. There are other parallels in the story but my knowledge of The Odyssey is a little rusty. Hope you enjoy.
The Movie, and Some knowledge of Homers epic.
