  • Calypso was a nymph, and the daughter of Atlas. She lived on the island Ogygia. Odysseus was a Greek man who was lost at sea after the Trojan war.
  • Odysseus was kept hostage by Calypso on her island for many years. Calypso was kind to him, but loved him and wouldn't let him go. Odysseus wanted to get home to his wife and son.
  • The gods and goddesses take pity on Odysseus and Zeus sends Hermes to tell Calypso return him home, while Odysseus' son Telemachus learns from Menelaus what happened to his father.

  • Odysseus ended up at the country of the Phaecians, whose king and chiefs listened to his story and helped him get back to his home, Ithaca.
  • Odysseus killed the men who wanted to marry his wife while he was gone, and he lived with his family again.
