Ὀδύσσεια Free read ☆ 104 Ine; the gorgeous water nymph Calypso who keeps him a prisoner of love for seven years; the terrible one eyed man eating giant Cyclops; and a host of other ogres wizards sirens and gods But when he finally reaches Ithaca after ten years of travel his trials have only begun There he must battle the scheming noblemen who thinking him dead have demanded that Penelope choose one of them to be her new husband and Ithaca’. I have read The Odyssey three times The first was not really a read but of a listen in the true oral tradition During embroidery class one of us young girls on the verge of entering the teens would read a passage while the rest were all busy with our eyes and fingers our needles and threads All learning to be future Penelopes crafty with their crafts cultivated patient and loyal And all wivesThe second read was already as an adult That time I let myself be led by the adventures and imagination of the resourceful one Relishing on the literary rhythm of the hexameters I particularly enjoyed the epithets used by the bards to keep the attention of the listeners Dawn of the rosy fingers was my favourite By then my embroideries were far away from my mindThis third time I read it in preparation for tackling Joyce s take on Homer And this time with a detached stance I have been surprised by the structure of the work the handling of time and the role of narration And those aspects I take with me in this third readingOf the twenty four books the first four or Telemachiad are preliminary Acting as an overture they take place not too long before the main action The following four are another preamble which take place roughly at the same time as the previous four The son and the father are getting ready to meet almost at the end of twenty years of their separation with ten at the war and ten coming backThen and this was my surprise what I always thought of as the core of the Odyssey the magical adventures with the Cyclops and Polyphemus the Lotus Eaters the Sirens Circe and the trip to the Underworld the Laestrygonias Scylla and Charybdis the Sun God etc forming what is called the Apologoi are a very small part of the book All of these eventful episodes take place along three years before the seven that Odysseus is amorously trapped by Kalypso And these are narrated after the fact by Odysseus himself in just four chapters chapters nine to twelve So to what in my mind was the meat of the Odyssey is only 17% of the book And if one recalls what a great deceiver Odysseus can be one could always wonder at these fablesThe rest the remaining twelve chapters or half of the book is the actual HomecomingWhat I have realized now is that The Odyssey is really about this Homecoming And that is what we witness directly All the enchanted adventures are told tales Odysseus as the bard chanting his own stories in the court of the Phaeacians A supreme teller since through his fables he has to build the image of the hero that his possibly dangerous audience see and do not see Odysseus as myth and myth maker No wonder his epithet of the resourceful one If the Homecoming had previously stayed in my mind as just an expected end in which all the invective and riveting elements are drearily put at an end as if one could already close the door and leave the one I have read now surprised me by its dramatization A different craft is at stageThe bard enacts the process of Justice performing through an act of Revenge There is no layered telling of the tale In the last half of the poem the pace and complexity of the various elements as they converge in the palace to play out divine retribution in which success does not seem assured not even to the great Odysseus who knows he has Athena s support has seemed this third time round magisterialAnd it is Penelope the patient the apprehensive the one who for twenty years has protected her mistrust with her weaving the one who with her threads offers the needed opportunity that the resourceful hero is at pains to find When she announces that she is about to end to the tapestry that has become her life the beggar can then put also an end to the agonyCrafted Homecoming

Okay so here s what happened I went out after work with the guys we went to a perfectly nice bar this chick was hitting on me but I totally brushed her off Anyway we ended up getting pretty wrecked and we might have smoked something in the bathroom I m not totally clear on that part and then this gigantic one eyed bouncer kicked us out so we somehow ended up at a strip club The guys were total pigs but not me seriously that s not glitter on my neck And then we totally drove right by these hookers without even stopping and here I am Only a little bit late By the way I crashed the car and six of the guys are in jail Ask for Officer ScyllaEhHomer s right Odysseus version is betterPS Do not try this story at home unless when you get there you re still capable of shooting your arrow into a narrow apertureFagles translation is excellent the new standard and Bernard Knox s enormous introduction is the best Homeric essay I ve ever readA good companion read is Hal Roth s We Followed Odysseus maybe not the most elouent of books but he retraces Odysseus s voyage as best he can in his sailboat which is a pretty rad idea I recreated his route as a Google map here with notes on each of the stops I also wrote summaries of each book of the Odyssey for a book club discussion I ve pasted them in the comments thread below if you re interested
