Homer’s Odyssey is the ancient Greek tale of Odysseus and his eventful voyage home after the Trojan War.
The hero and his crew escape a man-eating Cyclops and, having angered the sea-god Poseidon, are then beset by storms and blown to an island where a witch transforms the sailors into pigs.
With his fleet destroyed, Odysseus is held captive for seven years by the nymph Calypso, who offers his immortality if he will stay with her. But the desire to return to his loving wife, Penelope, is too strong and Odysseus determines to reach his home at Ithaca. His many adventures are the subject of this famous prose translation by T.E. Lawrence, which was the first to be aimed at a general readership.
In the Western classical tradition, Homer (Greek: Όμηρος) is considered the author of The Iliad and The Odyssey, and is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature.
When he lived is unknown. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before his own time, which would place him at around 850 BCE, while other ancient sources claim that he lived much nearer to the supposed time of the Trojan War, in the early 12th century BCE. Most modern researchers place Homer in the 7th or 8th centuries BCE.
The formative influence of the Homeric epics in shaping Greek culture was widely recognized, and Homer was described as the teacher of Greece. Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Fragments of Homer account for nearly half of all identifiable Greek literary papyrus finds.
