Essay on The Odyssey

Homer’s work, Odyssey, refers to the genre of the poem. Poem is the most poetic form of poetry; a big poetic work with narrative or lyrical story based on a combination of narrative characteristics of actors, events and their disclosure through the perception and evaluation of the lyrical character, the narrator.

Most modern scholars believe that Odyssey was originally created as a work of oral tradition.

Odyssey tells the story of Odysseus, king of Ithaca, the island in the west of Greece, who after long and dangerous adventures comes home to his wife Penelope. Odyssey scenes change all the time through the novel: moving from Troy in Egypt, North Africa and the Peloponnese, Ithaca and the far west of the Mediterranean Sea. The action begins ten years after taking Troy. Anger of gods did not allow Odysseus to return home. He lives with the sea nymph Calypso on the island. Athena, immutable intercessor of Odysseus finally gets Zeus’s permission to let Odysseus go. By changing her image, Athena goes to Ithaca, where Penelope and her son Telemachus are annoyed by riotous crowd of suitors, who force the queen to choose one of them for a husband. Athena encourages Telemachus to set on a trip to try to get any news of his father. Telemachus sails to Pylos, to the capital of Nestor. Nestor friendly accepts Telemachus, but has no information about Odysseus.

Then the events happen again on Ithaca. The gods on Olympus are gathering for the council again. Zeus sends Hermes, messenger of the gods, to tell Calypso to release Odysseus. Calypso reluctantly obeys. Odyssey hastily builds a raft and sails to the east, in the direction of Ithaca.

Lord of the seas, Poseidon is angry with Odysseus because he blinded his son, Polyphemus Cyclopes, and he sends a fierce storm that shatters Odysseus’s raft, but with the help of Athena he manages to reach the shore. On the island Odysseus meets Scheria, inhabitants of the island, and tells them stories of his adventures.

They in turn send Odysseus home on a speed boat. Odysseus finally returns to Ithaca, where he has not been for almost 20 years. Athena warns him of the danger of the young men ready to kill the king and take his place. Athena make Odysseus look like an old beggar. Telemachus together with his father makes up a plan to kill the suitors. The final in Odyssey is a triumph of poetic justice: the good people are rewarded and the evil is destroyed. The last word rests with the gods. Homer’s poem is an epic fairy-tale adventure and household story, where the story of the events is forced out with a story about a man.
