Written by the Greek epic poet Homer during the 8th Century BC, 'The Odyssey' tells of the wanderings of Odysseus on his adventurous way back to Ithaca.

Whatever the truth, 'The Odyssey' was radically different in style and content to anything else written at the time and its timeless themes and classic storyline continue to echo down the years.
