Homer’s Odyssey is one of the foundational texts of Western literature. It has influenced everything from Greek Tragedy to James Joyce to Science Fiction to computer games.
It’s the prototype for all journeys beset with dangers and thrills and challenges. Such journeys are called Odysseys.
Odyssey is an extraordinary poem full of atmosphere, character and incident, including the one-eyed man-eating Cyclops; the goddess Circe who turns men into pigs; the Sirens, whose beautiful singing lures men to their deaths and much much more.
