The Odyssey is the greatest adventure story ever written, and one of the great epic masterpieces of Western literature For almost 3,000 years, it has been a storehouse of ancient Greek folklore and myth. It is also our very first novel, if we think of it in terms of romantic plot development, realistic characterizations, frequent change of scene, and heroic dramatic devices. These elements continue to make it far more popular than its kindred piece, The Iliad. No other character in world literature has inspired as many literary works as Odysseus (Ulysses in Latin).

The story concerns an incident in the Trojan War and the difficulties of its hero, Odysseus, as he attempts to reach his home. Although possessing courage, stamina and power, it is his powerful mind that ultimately enables him to reach his destination and slay his adversaries. Odysseus is the very model of the worldly, well-traveled, persevering man. With his diplomacy, quick wit, and shrewd resourcefulness, he survives one catastrophe and set-back after another.

    " I did not like the book because I don't like reading about Greek gods, that doesn't interest me. "

    " A very difficult time teaching this. Difficult themes. Good story though. "

    " I think I know more people who prefer The Odyssey than the Iliad, though I fall into the reverse camp... but it's like Tolkien with languages: there are moods and some tastes predominate at different times. "

    " I see this more as a reference book, to help other stories make sense. Very handy for Greek myth allusions that seem to be everywhere! "
