    A Short Summary of the Epic Odyssey By Homer. The Odyssey or Odússeia is a sequel to Homer's Iliad. The Greek epic poem is one of the two works of the Greek literary genius. The poem is an extant work composed around the eighth century. A summary of the Odyssey highlights the journey of the Greek hero Odysseus or Ulysses, after the fall of Troy. The “Iliad and the Odyssey” keeps you on the edge of your seat from the beginning of the story to the end. I’m not into books like this one but I LOVED this book. The adventure, mystery, and the understanding of pre-history are great for anyone who wants to read this book.4/5.
