About (The Odyessy):

The Odyessy is the Greek epic poem attributed to Homer, which inspired a series of colorful works by Chagall depicting scenes of this heroic tale. The Odyssey is Homer's epic of its hero Ulysses, and his 10-year struggle to return home after the Trojan War. The extraordinary length of Ulysses' return trip, which should take a matter of weeks, is due to his many antagonists, including the god Poseidon, the many mythical creatures he encounters, and Ulysses' often greedy and lazy crewmen. While Ulysses battles mystical creatures and faces the wrath of the gods, his wife Penelope and his son Telemachus stave off suitors vying for Penelope's hand and Ithaca's throne long enough for Ulysses to return. The Odyssey ends as Ulysses wins a contest to prove his identity, slaughters the suitors, and retakes the throne of Ithaca.
