How can we explain the story of the much-enduring man who sailed ten years on the sea after the sack of Troy?

O, the encounters he had with the Cyclops, Lotus-Eaters, Aeolus' winds, Sirens, Circe, Scylla, Charybdis, Cattle of Helios, Calypso and even in the underworld.

Many were the men and ships he lost after angering the gods Poseidon and Helios.

Everyone loved one on Ithaca kept longing for his return and hoping he would rid them of Penelope's suitors.

Rejoicing occurred and reunions took place after the beggar Odysseus stringed his bow and slaughtered the suitors in his halls.
