The poem mainly centers on the Greek hero Odysseus and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War. In his absence, it is assumed he has died, and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must deal with a group of unruly suitors, the Mnesteres or Proci, who compete for Penelope's hand in marriage.

Odyssey is an epic tale written by Homer, about the adventures of the Greek hero, Odysseus. Odysseus was the son of Laërtes (Laertes) and Anticleia. Odysseus was the king of the island of Ithaca. With twelve ships, he sailed to and fought in Troy for ten years. He was one of the Greek best warriors, who masterminded the fall of Troy. Odysseus would suffered another ten years of wandering before the gods allowed him to set foot on his small, but beloved island Ithaca.
