Odysseus told his men to sail more towards Scylla than Charybdis because Circe told him to. Scylla could eat and kill six men at a time. Charybdis, if caught at the wrong time, would get everyone. Honestly, Scylla is the better of the two options. He was risking six of his men at a time but he felt that if he sailed towards Charybdis, he would be risking all of his men and himself because they would never be sure if she was calm or about to start her whirlpool.
Odysseus chose to sail more towards Scylla than Charybdis because it would be more safe. if he sailed towards Charybdis then he would risk loose all of his men at once. On the other hand if he sailed towards Scylla then he would only risk loosing six of his men at a time.
Odysseus chooses to sail toward Scylla to have a better chance of protecting his crew. Scylla can only attack and kill 6 men at a time. However, Charybdis will consume the entire crew if they were to be within range at a certain time. The best idea in Odysseus eyes is to risk the loss of 6 men instead of the entire crew.
Odysseus chose to sail to Scylla instead of Charybdis. Scylla can only kill 6 men at once, on the other hand Charybdis can kill the entire crew. The best decision he can make is to sail to Scylla.
The reason why Odysseus sailed closer towards Scylla than Charybdis because Circa told Odysseus to. Odysseus was putting hisself and his other men at risk to. Scylla could only eat 6 men at a time. Charybdis could kill his whole crew at one time so, if he go towards Scylla less people will get killed.
Hi :). Odysseus was also referred to as Ulysses and was mostly known for the role played in the Trojan War.Odysseus is said to be the son of Anticlea and of King Laertes of Ithaca. However, in some stories they maintain his father to be Sisphus, founder of Corinth and a winning man who outfitted the God Hades. One verison even says Sisyphus seduced Anticlea before her marraige to Laertes and that Odysseus inherites his cleverness from Sisyphus. Because of Odysseus' long journey to reach home, NASA space mission was named after his better known Roman name: The Ulysses Mission. Odysseus was credited for coming up with hiding soldiers in the horse. He told the soldiers that the horse was a religious gift so the soldiers wouldn't refuse it.
Hey ( : Odysseus chooses Scylla over Charybdis because,Scylla is a monster that snatches sailors for food. Charybdis is a whirlpool, so Odysseus chose to sacrifice a few instead of all. Scylla will only kill 6 men, one for each head. Charybdis will sink the ship, killing everyone. Circe has also advised Odysseus to do choose Scylla.
Hey Ms. Hulsey. Odysseus chooses Scylla over Charybdis because,Scylla is a monster that snatches sailors for food.
The reason why Odysseus sailed closer towards Scylla than Charybdis because Circa told Odysseus to. Odysseus and his other men was at risk. Scylla could only eat 6 men at a time. Sorry This Is Late :(
Happy New Years :)
- Sorry its late , computer is still acting up.
- Osysseus chooses the Scylla because less men will die. they are both dangerous but, the Charybdis will kill everyone while the Scylla will risk only 6 men. These are the only paths he can take to get home and Circe advised him to take Scylla as well. Its the smart thing to do.
Odysseus chose to sail his boat towards Scylla for Circe has warned him that she would only take six of his men. On the other hand, Charybdis would take more than that, maybe even all of the ship. It was a hard decision most definitely, but Odysseus wasn't about to give up on his journey. He risks his life as well as six of his men's, but he was warned by Circe ahead of time so he knew which path to choose.
Odysseus choose to sail towards Syclla because he was warned. If he would have sailed toward Charybdis, all of his men could end up dead. Sailing towards Syclla was the smarter choice simply because she would only take 6 of his men & not all of them. He risks his life & his men's life in deciding which path to take.
