asleep under a pile of leaves. Land of Cyclopes Odysseus and his men landed in the island
of the Cyclopes, they wanted to see if the
Cyclopes were friends or enemies. When

Odysseus drunk Polyphemus and while he slept he blinded his only eye. Odysseus and his crew got back to their boat and scape while the Cyclopes prayed to Poseidon so they could never return home.

Scylla and Charybdis. Thrinacia Calypsos Island Ithaca Odysseus and his men were
already on the sight of Ithaca.
They decided to open the box. The
consequence was for them to
return to Aeolus. They got back to Aeolus. The king
sensed they were being retrieved. He
didn't help them any more. Odysseus
and his crew decided to leave the island. Odysseus arrived to Aeaea the place
where Goddess Circe lived. Odysseus first

the men to pigs. Eurylochus came back and
told Odysseus. Odysseus gets a magical plant
from Hermes called moly, he drinks it and goes
to Circe´s palace and makes a deal. Circe lets
them go after one year but they had to go to
the Land of the Dead to hear a prophecy. Odysseus and his men went to the land
of the Dead next. They arrived and
heard a prophecy from the ghost of
Tiresias. Then they came back to Earth. Odysseus and his men are back to Circe’s island. Meanwhile Odysseus men where asleep, Circe
talks to Odysseus about the underworld, to hear
what happened. She also gives him advice
for the cave of Scylla and Charybdis. Before they went in the cave Odysseus and his men were surrounded by three Sirens but they could pass them by using the advice of Circe Odysseus and his men entered Scylla and Charybdis cave. Scylla was inside the cave
so she ate some of Odysseus crew. At the
end of the cave Charybdis ate everything
that Scylla couldn't eat. Odysseus and just four
of his men could survive this, they sailed on. Odysseus and his men went to Thrinacia
the land of Helios. They were stuck there
with no food. They wanted food so Odysseus
went to look for some but passed out under
some leaves. His men started eating the things
of the castle. Helios gets mad and sends Zeus to
destroy Odysseus ship and to kill all his men. Odysseus floated in the sea until he got to his next destination. Odysseus gets alone to the island of Calypso.She
keeps him there seven years. Calypso is in love with Odyssues. After those years, Zeus sends Hermes to make a deal with Calypso so Odysseus can leave to his home. Calypso agrees to the deal and helps Odysseus build a raft
where he had to be 20 days sailing and then go home. Odysseus stayed 20 days in the raft and the last day he swam to Ithica. Odysseus arrived to his home Ithaca
10 years later after the war of Troy. He had to
sail 20 days before getting back. His
journey ended there since he was already
at home. Author: Homer The Odyssey is a story written by the author Homer. The main character of this epic poem is Odysseus.
