Homer's "Odyssey": A Retelling in Prose
Print edition. This is a retelling of Homer's "Odyssey" in novel form. This is an easy-to-read version. Chapter 1: Athena and Telemachus Muse, goddess of inspiration, please help me. I have an important story to tell, and I need help to tell it. Please use me to tell the story. Help me to tell the story of a man of twists and turns. His mind twists and turns to seek solutions to problems. His journey twists and turns in the Mediterranean-and beyond. His strategy conquered Troy. He is a man who tried mightily-but failed-to bring his companions home, fools though they sometimes were. Help me to tell the story of Odysseus, the great individualist and mastermind and man who feels pain deeply. All other heroes of the Trojan War were home by now-or dead. Only Odysseus remained away from his home. Odysseus was kept captive by Calypso the sea-goddess.
