The Odyssey

After the Trojan war, Odysseus (King of Ithaca) set off to sail home.
His ship was blown badly off course and his journey home took him to many fascinating and dangerous places.

In the same way that the poet Homer wrote about the Trojan War in his poem "The Iliad",
he also wrote about Odysseus' journey home in his poem "The Odyssey".
