    In disguise in Ithaca, she convinces Telemachus to search for his father. Odysseus embodies the stubborn will of the ancient Greeks to overcome fate and create a culture that centered on man. Before long, the Greeks stormed at the unsuspecting, drunk and practically defenseless Trojans, slewing many of them and, finally, winning a famous and conclusive victory. In addition, Odysseus never forgot his grudge against Palamedes. Once the Trojan War ended, Odysseus thought his journey home would begin.

    Odysseus had to recover these sailors forcibly. Odysseus is shrewd, tough, clear-sighted, experienced, a man very well equipped to brave adversity. He does not return to his kingdom ostentatiously, as Agamemnon did. Those typhons. Odysseus sailed away on a tiny boat, but was again shipwrecked by another storm sent by Poseidon.

    Calypso gave Odysseus an axe with which he fashioned a raft. He had himself tied to the mast so that he might hear their singing and still survive. Now he returns and, reunited with his loving family, prepares to save the day. The Odyssey is an intensely human story. The Greeks felt a special affection for Odysseus because he reflected a number of Greek qualities. He put his men first before himself, thus saving them, a responsible and creative endeavor.
