The Odyssey remains of the most influential writings of all time bceause as one of the earliest pieces of western literature it has set the barr for the epic tales of adventure that followed. Few have reached its mark.

A story of adventure, magic, love, loss, and the struggle to regain civilisation, it follows the character of Oddysseus as he travels home from war. It is based on universal themes that continue to be of importance today as a fantasy, moral lesson, and a glimpse into Ancient Greece.
