Analysis of Odysseus’ Progression through The Odyssey

We read many chapters of The Odyssey. What do you think of Odysseus as a commander in this epic poem? Did he get better along the way? Worse? When he sets out on his next adventure, would you be willing to set foot on a ship with him (given he is no longer cursed by a god)? Analyze based only on the books we read in the poem, and using specific evidence from the text.
The Translation used is ‘The Essential Odyssey” translated by Stanley Lombardo, its very important this version of the book is used. Also as the prompt reads, there is a limit on which books can be used from the poem. It is limited to Books 1, 9-13, 19 and 21-24
