Complex and epic in its scope, Homer’s The Odyssey was written almost 3,000 years ago and it is considered to be the foundation stone upon which literary culture was built.
After the fall of the city of Troy, Greek warrior hero Odysseus journeys home to Ithaca after the Greek victory over the Trojans. On his travels, he passes through surreal and foreign lands, challenged at every turn by gods and mythical beasts. Widely read and celebrated as most important ancient Greek text, along with its prequel, The Iliad, The Odyssey explores the powerful and universal themes of courage, strength of mind and temptation.
