Ten years after the fall of Troy, the victorious Greek hero Odysseus has still not returned to his native Ithaca. A band of rowdy suitors, believing Odysseus to be dead, has overrun his palace, courting his faithful -- though weakening -- wife, Penelope, and going through his stock of permission from Zeus, the goddess Athena, Odysseus' greatest immortal ally, appears in disguise and. Homer - Homer - The Odyssey: The Odyssey tends to be blander in expression and sometimes more diffuse in the progress of its action, but it presents an even more complex and harmonious structure than the Iliad. The main elements are the situation in Ithaca, where Penelope, Odysseus’ wife, and their young son, Telemachus, are powerless before her arrogant suitors as they despair of Odysseus.

A Pontic Greek History describes Pontic Greek history and culture including the Pontic Greek dialect with a focus on the Trabzon region. The history includes the author's ancestors' life in Trabzon from the early s till they fled in to the Caucasus with the exiting Russian forces at the end of World War 1. Other readers, however, have pointed out that Book 24 ties up a crucial loose end: the grief of Odysseus’s father, Laertes. By saving Odysseus’s reunion with Laertes until last, The Odyssey suggests that no relationship—not even the relationship of husband and wife—is more important than the bond between father and son.

The Odyssey is a major Ancient Greek epic poem. It was written by Homer, to whom another epic, the Iliad, is also attributed. In its origin it was an oral epic poem from Mycenaean Greece, about the 11th century BC. The hero of the poem is Odysseus, or Ulysses as he is called in Latin; the poem is mythological, not historical. The Odyssey is one of the classic stories of ancient Greece; penned by the Greek epic poet Homer, the Odyssey tells of the struggles of the Greek hero Odysseus in returning home after the fall of Troy. Written in the 8th Century BC, the Odyssey is often seen as a sequel to the Iliad, although there is gap in the timeline from the end of the Iliad, and the journey of Odysseus, a gap relating to.

The Greeks thought its author Homer was from Chios or Ionia and credited him with both this book and its prequel the Iliad, the two masterpieces of Greek literature.

Homer was the first Greek writer whose work survives. He was one of a long line of bards, or poets, who worked in the oral tradition. Homer and other bards of the time could recite, or chant, long epic poems.
