History 6, Review Lesson 13 – The Odyssey

The Odyssey is an epic tale of how Odysseus, a solider in the Trojan War, makes his 10 year journey back home after the Trojan War.

On Odysseus’s journey back home he faces the wrath of the Greek Gods, resists the temptations of the sirens, defeats cyclopes, and just fighting the crazy storms on sea! While Odysseus is facing monster and such back home his son, Prince of Ithaca, Telemachus, and his wife, Queen of Ithaca, Penelope, are fighting off suiters who want to become Penelope’s husband so they can become the king of Ithaca.

But all the suiters failed when Odysseus comes home again. Since he has been gone for 20 years his wife and son don’t recognize him, he proves his identity by slaughtering all the suiters and claiming the crown and takes his rightful place as King of Ithaca.

I hope that after you’ve read this essay you feel like finding and reading this great book.
