Transcript of Odyssey Map: Odysseus' Journey

Created by Johniece Woodard Odyssey Map: Odysseus Journey Troy Ithaca! Odysseus and other Achaeans battled here for 10 years, until Odysseus built the Trojan Horse and helped win the war. Odysseus does not give a sacrifice to Poseidon, the god of the waters, which starts him off on a bad note. The Achaean soldiers stop here and rob the city. After that, they decide to throw a party on the beach, which gives the inhabitants enough time to gather their men and attack. Six men from each ship are killed before Odysseus and his men escape. Ismarus The nymph, Circe, turns Odysseus' men into pigs. Odysseus agrees to lay with Circe, but first, he refuses to eat until she turns the men back into humans. Circe agrees, and they all stay there for a year before remembering Ithaca. Before leaving, Circe tells Odysseus he must go to Hades to speak with Teiresias. Aeaea Here, Odysseus makes a sacrifice to attract the dead souls. Teiresias warns him about the cattle on Thrinacia and about the suitors. He seees his mother, who tells him she died because of him. He also sees Elpenor, who tells him if he does not go back to Aeaea and bury his body, he will haunt him. Hades Odysseus finally makes it home. He tells a stranger that he is a killer, but it turns out to be Athena who disguises him as a beggar. Odysseus goes to see the swineherd, Eumaeus to find out information of what has been going on in his palace. Penelope, Odysseus' wife, gives the suitors Odysseus' crossbow and tells them whoever can set it, will marry her. Eventually the bow gets to Odysseus and he kills all of the suitors. Odysseus and his men escaped from the Cyclops. They arrived at Aeolia, ruled by King Aeolus. As a parting gift, Aeolus gives Odysseus a bag of winds. The men sail away again and Odysseus takes a nap. Aeolia After the men opened the bag of winds, they are blown back to Aeolia. Aeolus is enraged and kicks them out of his kingdom. Land of the Cyclops Odysseus and his men arrive on a mysterious island. He sends some men to explore, but they don't return. Later, he finds out they ate the lotus plants and forgot about returning home and became lazy. Odysseus had to drag them on to the ship and tie them up to make sure they kept on moving. The Lotus Eaters Odysseus' ship stays outside of the island, while the others go. They soon find out that the island is dangerous, the inhabitants kill all of the other crew members. With just his ship left, Odysseus quickly sails away. Laestrygonia Odysseus keeps the information about Scylla, a six headed monster, from his men so they will not lose moral. Scylla eats six of the crew members on Odysseus' ship, but they pass the rock without coming in contact with Charybdis. Scylla Odysseus instructs his men to tie him up, but fill their ears with beeswax. The men continue to row while Odysseus begs for them to let him go. The sound of the Sirens attracts him, but since he instructed his men to only tighten the ropes, he can not get free. The Sirens Odysseus wakes up and covers himself with a bush. He approaches Nausicaa, King Alcinous' daughter, and asks for help. She gives him clothes and takes him to her parents, who greet him. After many festivities, Odysseus is asked who he is, and begins his tale. Alcinous agrees to give Odysseus an escort and a ship to sail to Ithaca. Phaeacia Odysseus comes back to Aeaea to bury Elpenor. Circe warns him of the Sirens, Scylla and Charybdis, and the cattle on the island of Helios. Aeaea Aeolia The lost soldiers arrived on a land that seemed to be empty. They went into a seemingly uninhabited cave and feasted. Soon, the son of Poseidon and a cyclops, Polyphemus, came and found the men. He ate two of them before Odysseus blinded him. Thrinacia Odysseus was told specifically not to land on Thrinacia, but Eurylochus and the sailors protested and outnumbered Odysseus. They land on Thrinacia and promise to Odysseus they will not eat anything. After a month of staying on the island, due to bad weather, the men go back on their promise and eat the sacred cattle of the Sun god. Ogygia Charybdis Zeus punished Odysseus' men for eating the cattle by causing a storm to wreck the ship and drown them. Alone, Odysseus sails on a raft towards Charybdis, the beast that caused a deadly whirlpool, and barely escapes. Odysseus gets washed up on Calypso's Isle, Ogygia. Calypso takes him in and forces him to lay with her at night. Odysseus cries on the shore every morning for seven years. Finally, Hermes tells Calypso to let Odysseus go.
