A Quick Overview of The Odyssey

The epic starts out with Penelope giving birth to Telemachus, and her beloved husband Odysseus leaving shortly after to go fight in The Trojan War. At Troy, Odysseus designs and helps build the Trojan Horse. Him and his men hide inside the horse, and plan to jump out and attack while the Trojans are asleep. The Trojans accept the peace offering, and they do as they plan. They are victorious, and from here Odysseus and his men depart on their ships. At this point, they stop at all of the places listed in the "Journey" section of the website.
