Calypso the Sweet Nymph
Calypso is upset because Odysseus doesn't want to stay with her
"Can I be less desirable than she is? Less interesting? Less beautiful? Can mortals compare with goddesses in grace and form?
Odysseus is trying to explain to her that his wife doesn't even come close to her and that he wants to leave so he can return to his land.
"My goddess, here is no cause for anger. My quit Penelope-how well I know-would seem a shade before your majesty, death and old age being unknown to you, while she must die. Yet it true, each day I long for the sign of home
She grants him his wish and allows him to leave, but Poseidon causes a storm, causing Odysseus and his men to land on an unfamiliar island
Odysseus and his men soon land on the island of the Lotus-Eaters, a tribe that is ensnared on the flower
