Here I am stuck on an island with a goddess. I miss my wife and son.
Let's go, boys!
Your dad stayed behind in Troy and I left for home. He's cool.
Muse tells the story of Odysseus who has been away from home for 10 years and is trapped on an island. Zeus' daughter, Athena, convinces him to allow Odysseus to escape. Meanwhile, suitors have taken over Odysseus' house and are trying to marry his wife Penelope. Athena visits Odysseus' son, Telemachus, renews his spirits, and tells him to voyage to find out about his father.
Telemachus argues with the Suitors, but they don't listen to him because he's too young to do anything. He then secretly sets sail for Sparta, looking for news of his father, and Athena helps him put together a group of men to go with him.
Telemachus and his men arrive in Pylos and talk to Nestor, who fought with Odysseus in the battle of Troy. Nestor says lots of nice things about Odysseus, and tells Telemachus to go and ask Menelaus for more news of his father. He also tells Telemachus that he has an immortal, Athena, looking out for him. Telemachus and Nestor's son, Peisistratus, ride together to find Menelaus.
