Summary

The Odyssey is an epic poem that unfurls the story of Odysseus' triumph over Troy and arduous journey home to reclaim his kingdom. It has the elements of romance and adventure and the psychological development of character thousands of years before Freud. At 2,500 years old, it is one of the finest books ever written; as poetry, it sets the standard for comparison; and it serves as one of the foundations of the Western world's cultural heritage.
