“The Odyssey, meaning 'the story of Odysseus',
  takes place ten years after the Trojan War in
  the Mediterranean Sea. Odysseus, who has
  been away from his homeland for over twenty
  years, struggles to return. His tale of the
  hardships he encountered is told, and the fate
  of his homeland is resolved. He murders all of
  the suitors plaguing his household, returns to
  his wife and son, and restores peace to his
  island of Ithacs.”
