Book Discussion: Noah & Odysseus: Clothing, Custom, Law

In Genesis 9 and Odyssey 6, Noah and Odysseus endure the humiliation of nakedness, from which they are rescued by Shem and Japheth in Genesis and the princess Nausikaa in the Odyssey. What are the important differences in these stories, and what can they teach us about clothing and custom in ancient Israel and Greece?
