Odysseus’ voyage has lasted nearly two decades; his men long for Ithaca.
After a year on the witch-goddess Circe’s island the crew sets sail and crosses to the edge of the ocean, anchoring in a harbor where Odysseus visits the spirits of the dead, including his mother who has died grieving over his long absence. Perilous sea adventures follow: Odysseus resists the temptations of the dangerously seductive singing of the Sirens and navigates between the sea monster Scylla and the whirlpools of Charybdis. Finally, while resting on the island of Helios, Odysseus' men disobey his orders to forego The Sun God’s cattle. When they set sail, Zeus obliges Helios’ demand for revenge with a terrible storm that leaves all but Odysseus dead.
The journey continues.
