Odysseus

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Famous Greeks

Odysseus

Taught by Professor J. Rufus Fears | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Unlike the doomed Hector, Agamemnon, and Achilles, the wily Odysseus is the consummate survivor. For 10 years after the fall of Troy, angry gods make him wander the Mediterranean. In the end, his prudence and courage restore him to his home. Homer makes Odysseus's story into a metaphor for the human experience, and gives us a look at the late Bronze Age.
