Readers experience many substories that mimic the thematic tales of The Odyssey. In Book I the metaphorical stage is set "in medias res" as the Greek Gods discuss Odysseus’ predicament. The story starts twenty years after Odysseus has left his infant son Telemachus with his patient wife Penelope. As he goes to fight against Troy in Homer’s previous tale The Iliad.
The Odyssey is often cited as an epitome of the hero’s journey and the monomyth. The hero of the story, Odysseus is on a 10 year battle homeward from the Trojan War to see his wife and son again. With the help divine intervention, Odysseus is able to return home and save his wife from the evil suitors who have continuously tried to win her. One could easily argued that Odysseus is an exemplar of the hero, but there is another story: Odysseus is the opposite of a hero and is not worthy to be called such. He is the villain where the gods are the hero.
Odysseus is shown to overcome his pride while he was a beggar and during his stay with the Calypso. For example, back at home he was always treated like the king of Ithaca but he becomes a beggar overthrowing his pride of a rich king. He only cares for his family now and will do anything now after this long journey to be back with his wife and son ruling his kingdom again. For this reason, he accepts that he is at an equal level of pride and humility.
He then battled there for 10 years. It was a hard battle then Odysseus finally succeeded and won the war between the two rivaling cities. Back at home, on Ithaca. He left a newborn son named Tellemicus, and a wife named Penelope. As well as an entire city throw into chaos because everyone thinks he’s dead.
Ruled by emotions, our overpowering heart makes us human. For Odysseus, he was ruled by the emotion of arrogance on his journey home after his Trojan War victory. Arrogance is a matter of the mind; the mind deceives humans into thinking that they are greater than the bigger picture of life. By believing himself above the gods, Odysseus spends ten years to reach his wife Penelope and son Telemachus, all while encountering characters of challenge and temptation. In Odysseus’ story, the secondary characters symbolize the traits of human experience, such as greed, lust, love, and hope that will serve to teach Odysseus of his humanity.
