The Odyssey: A Graphic Novel
Odyssey , epic poem in 24 books traditionally attributed to the ancient Greek poet Homer. The poem is the story of Odysseus , king of Ithaca , who wanders for 10 years although the action of the poem covers only the final six weeks trying to get home after the Trojan War. On his return, he is recognized only by his faithful dog and a nurse. With the help of his son, Telemachus , Odysseus destroys the insistent suitors of his faithful wife, Penelope , and several of her maids who had fraternized with the suitors and reestablishes himself in his kingdom. The Odyssey does not follow a linear chronology.
It is, in part, a sequel to the Iliad , the other Homeric epic. The Odyssey is fundamental to the modern Western canon ; it is the second-oldest extant work of Western literature, while the Iliad is the oldest. Scholars believe the Odyssey was composed near the end of the 8th century BC, somewhere in Ionia , the Greek coastal region of Anatolia. The poem mainly focuses on the Greek hero Odysseus known as Ulysses in Roman myths , king of Ithaca , and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War.
