Transcript of THE ODYSSEY
Ulysses met with Aeolus, the master of the winds, after his escape from Polyphemus. Ulysses received a bag of the winds from him to help him on his journey home, but jis crew opened it and caused them to be set back to the beginning of their journey.
Master of the Winds
Ulysses traveled to the land of the cannibalistic Laestrygonian giants. While entering the giants' port, all of Ulysses' ships were destroyed except for his own.
Ulysses then had to pass through Scylla, the six-headed monster, and Charybdis, the whirlpool. He lost six men to Scylla and later, after finding the cows of Helios, his ship to Charybdis.

After the Trojan War
Next Ulysses and his crew traveled to Circe's island. She tricked Ulysses, though, and turned his crew into pigs. Hermes gave Ulysses a drug that resisted Circe's magic, and he was able to revert his crew back to normal.
The next obstacle Ulysses faced was Polyphemus the cyclops. Him and his crew beat him with a wooden stake. As they were leaving Ulysses told Polyphemus his identity which caused Poseidon to be angered.
10 years after the Trojan War, Ulysses attempts to travel back to his home, Ithica.
The first obstacle Ulysses ha to overcome was the Lotus-eaters. They gave his crew members fruit that caused them to forget their homesickness and want to get home.
Because he was angered by Ulysses, Poseidon sent him on a 10 year journey on the seas, losing most of his crew by the end.
Start of the Journey
One year after staying at Circe's island, Ulysses had to face the Sirens. To keep from crashing to the rocks. Ulysses had his crew fill their ears with wax and himself tied to the mast.
Ogygia and Ulysses' Return Home
After leaving Calypso's home, Ogygia, Ulysses traveled back to his kingdom of Ithica. Because he was thought to be dead, he had to defeat all of the suitors attempting to win over his wife.
