If he ever makes it home, Odysseus will have to detect those servants loyal from those who are not. One absent king against rows of suitors; how will he give them their just desserts? We look to Bright Eyed Pallas Athena to help prophecy come true.
Interestingly all the tales of monsters and gods on the sea voyage was told by Odysseus. Notice that no one else survives to tell the tale. Therefore, we have to rely on Odysseus' word.
Many movies took sections of The Odyssey, and expanded them to make interesting stories those selves.
Not just the story but also the way in which it is told will keep you up late at night reading.
I got th gist from Wilipedia instead.
once I understood the theory behind the poep structure I started to get into it.
It is genius. And fascinating because it is so old.
The interaction with the Greek gods is really fascinating.
Read it all?
Maybe when I retire.
