The second work of Western literature, Homer's Odessey is, as Peter Jones says in his illuminating introduction, "rich in character, adventure and incident, reconciling reality with fantasy, the heroic with the humble." It recounts the story of Odysseus's return to Ithaca from the Trojan war and tells how, championed by Athene and hounded by the wrathful sea-god Poseidon, Odysseus encounters the ferocious Cyclops, escapes Scylla and Charybdis, and yields temporarily to the lures of Circe and Calypso before he overcomes the trials awaiting him on Ithaca. Only then is he reunited with his faithful wife Penelope, his wanderings at an end.
