Trivia Question

In the opening of Homer's "The Odyssey", the suitors of Penelope angrily complain that she will only entertain their offers once she has completed weaving a shroud for the aging Laertes (father of Odysseus). Sounds reasonable, but why exactly are they angry?




Choose the correct answer:

She's weaving it with Trojan wool. Laertes already has three perfectly good shrouds. Each night she unravels what she has woven in the day. There is a financial crisis, and the Greek Central Bank will no longer supply free wool.
