Transcript of Odyssey's Adventures
3.08 Odyssey Project
After leaving Troy, they stopped here to raid for supplies. The Cicones attacked on horseback and 72 men were killed.
The Island of the Cicones
Here, Odysseus and his men
find a Cyclops' cave, lured by his cheese and wine. The cyclops traps them inside the cave. Odysseus and his men blind the cyclops, and then sneak out under his heard of sheep.
The Island of
Circe turns Odysseus' men
to swine, but Odysseus is
protected from her magic
with the help of Hermes,
who gave him a magical herb. Odysseus ends up staying there for what seems like a short time, but ended up being a couple years.
Odysseus chooses to sail for Scylla, a six-headed sea serpent, rather than Charybdis, a giant whirlpool. He did this because he knew that if he went to Charybdis, the whole ship would be destroyed. However, if he went towards Scylla, six men would die. A sacrifice that Odysseus had to make.
Scylla and Charybdis
After the victory at Troy, Odysseus and his
men begin their journey home from here.
The Island of Aeolus
Aeolus, the god of the winds, gives Odysseus all of the bad winds, so he can safely sail home. Odysseus' men go against his orders and open the bag, and all of the winds escape.
The Island of the Sirens
Odysseus and his men pass here, an island with women singing luring songs, trying to reel in many sailors. So they do not hear, Odysseus fills his mens ears with beeswax, and he has them tie him to the mast so he could listen to thier song.
The Island of Helios
They stop here and Odysseus falls asleep praying to Athena. While sleeping, his men once
again go against his orders
and eat Helios' cattle. This
outrages the god, and he
threatens never to rise
again. As a punishment,
Zeus throws a bolt of
lightning at the ship, and
turns it to splinters. Only
Ogygia (Calypso's Island)
Odysseus finds this island after drifting in the sea. It is the island of Calypso, with whom Odysseus has a seven-year affair with. After the seven years, Hermes convinces Calypso to let Odysseus build a new ship so he could sail home.
The Island of the Phaecians
The Phaecians accept Odysseus, and he explains his ten-year journey to them during a feast. They happily give him a ride home on
one of their
sees his son,
Telemachus, for the first time in 15 years. He and Telemachus kill all of the suitors, and Odysseus takes his place as king, once again, alongside his wife Penelope.
