Abstract:

So much has been written about Homer that the legendary blind bard might just as well himself be included among the great pantheon of Greek gods about whom he wrote so well. The Odyssey is concerned with Odysseus' difficulties in returning home after the Trojan War, which was won by the Greeks. It is unquestionably one of the great epic masterpieces of Western literature and a storehouse of Greek folklore and myth. With its wise and always magnificent hero and its romantic theme, The Odyssey has established itself as perhaps the greatest adventure story of all time.
