 Derek Walcott's "The Odyssey: A Stage Version"
Walcott's repetitive association between father and son lays the groundwork for the doubling of Telemachus and Eurylochus.
While other doubles express the inherently psychological nature of Odysseus' return, Eurylochus' lengthy and vital role suggests that the "odyssey" is as much about yearning for a return to stable relationship of fathers and sons as its is about rekindling marriage.
Moreover, the staging of a double based on Telemachus' anxiety (Helen weaving as his mother does) marks the elevated importance of the son as a part of the odyssey.

But by and by he heard a tremendous grunting and squealing, and then a sudden scampering, like that of small, hard hoofs over a marble floor, while the voices of the mistress and her four handmaidens were screaming all together, in tones of anger and derision.
Eurylochus could not conceive what had happened, unless a drove of swine had broken into the palace, attracted by the smell of the feast.
