 THE ODYSSEY

The Odyssey is a ridiculously exciting epic about a man journeying home after a long, brutal war.

 Back in Ithaka his wife Penelope and son Telemachus assume he is long dead.

 So do a bunch of wealthy young layabouts who lust after Penelope, mock

Telemachus, and dream of taking over Odysseus’ palace and wealth for themselves.Heaven help them if the boss gets back.

 The story takes place in a golden, heroic age where everyone seems noble, godlike and illustrious. Or are they?

Well maybe, but underneath the gloss they are, as often as not, fallible, frail, self-engrossed and engagingly human.
