The Odyssey

By Homer (15)

Show/Hide Info

The classic epic The Odyssey, attributed to Homer, is the tale of the hero Odysseus, shipwrecked and sidetracked for seven years before he can finally return to his family in Ithaca. The Trojan War has ended ten years earlier with the Greek victory, but Odysseus’s strange adventures have just begun. Sure that King Odysseus is dead, a host of suitors plague his wife Penelope, which infuriates his son Telemachus. Telemachus searches for news of his missing father, while Odysseus must escape from the island of the beautiful enchantress Calypso. Angry with Odysseus, the sea god Poseidon whips up a storm that sends Odysseus’s raft to the island of the Phaeacians, where he tells the islanders the story of his adventures, up to that point in time. Helped on his way home by these friendly people, the hero at last reaches Ithaca, where he disguises himself as a beggar in order to rout the importunate suitors from the kingdom. At last, order is restored and the trials of the wandering hero are at an end. High school students should relish this ancient tale of seduction, betrayal, and ultimate triumph.
