Read the following excerpt from The Odyssey again:

My home is on the peaked sea-mark of Ithaca
under Mount Neion’s wind-blown robe of leaves,
in sight of other islands-Dulichium,
Same, wooded Zacynthus-Ithaca
being most lofty in that coastal sea,
and northwest, while the rest lie east and south.
A rocky isle, but good for a boy’s training;
I shall not see on earth a place more dear,
Which of the following elements of Epic Poetry do you see displayed in THIS passage?
O elevated, or poetic, language
O a long and difficult quest
O and invocation, or request, to a muse
O important historical events
