The Odyssey is a Hero myth originating from the Ancient Greek belief system. The main deity depicted in this myth is likely Zeus. Others include Apollo, Athena, and Poseidon.
In a nutshell
After the Trojan war, Odysseus sails home with his men. During his long journey, he faces challenges such as the "cyclops," the Sirens, and other fantastical creatures. He hurries home because suitors are trying to take his wife's hand in marriage. When Odysseus gets home, he wins a challenge, reclaims his life, and kills all the suitors.
"The Odyssey" is a full transcript of the Odyssey hero myth by Samuel Butler in 1900. This myth is considered by many as a sequel to the Iliad, which was also translated by Butler. Butler translated the work into prose from the Homeric Greek for a broad audience. It contains all twenty-four books through 323 pages. Butler's version is readable for a layman audience. This work is attributed to a single man named Homer; however, many scholars do not accept this authorship claim.
