The poem mainly centers on the Greek hero Odysseus known as Ulysses in Roman myths and his journey home after the fall of Troy It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten year Trojan War In his absence it is assumed he has died and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must deal with a group of unruly suitors the Mnesteres Greek or Proci who compete for Penelope s hand in marriage .

It continues to be read in the Homeric Greek and translated into modern languages around the world Many scholars believe that the original poem was composed in an oral tradition by an aoidos epic poet singer perhaps a rhapsode professional performer and was more likely intended to be heard than read The details of the ancient oral performance and the story s conversion to a written work inspire continual debate among scholars The Odyssey was written in a poetic dialect of Greek a literary amalgam of Aeolic Greek Ionic Greek and other Ancient Greek dialects and comprises lines of dactylic hexameter Among the most noteworthy elements of the text are its non linear plot and the influence on events of choices made by women and serfs besides the actions of fighting men In the English language as well as many others the word odyssey has come to refer to an epic voyage The Odyssey began ten years after the end of the ten year Trojan War the subject of the Iliad and Odysseus has still not returned home from the war Odysseus son Telemachus is about years old and is sharing his absent father s house on the island of Ithaca with his mother Penelope and a crowd of boisterous young men the Suitors whose aim is to persuade Penelope to marry one of them all the while enjoying the hospitality of Odysseus household and eating up his wealth .

That night Athena disguised as Telemachus finds a ship and crew for the true Telemachus The next morning Telemachus calls an assembly of citizens of Ithaca to discuss what should be done with the suitors by Homer, Read Monkey, Pablo
