  • Approach
  • Ordeal/Crisis
  • Reward/Treasure
  • Odysseus and his crew end up on the island of Aeolia, which is ruled by the god Aeolus. Aeolus gives Odysseus' boat a blow in the right direction that will lead it back to Ithaca. Along with that, Aeolus also gave him a bag of wind that if anyone is to open the bag, it will blow them farther away in the wrong direction. Later on Odysseus falls asleep, and his men are greedy and curious.  They want to know what is in the bag. Just before reaching home they  open it and it blows them faraway. 
  • Road Back/Return
  • Circe has told Odysseus to travel to the underworld to seek advice from Tiresias, a blind prophet. Odysseus takes her suggestion and goes to the underworld. He is able to talk to Tiresias, who tells him how to get home. 
  • Atonement/New Life
  • After doing what Tiresias told him, Odysseus lands on Scheria (Island of the Phaeaians). He goes to King Alcinous, and tells him where he is from. The king is amazed to hear that Odysseus is alive, and personally sees to it that he gets back to Ithaca. 
  • Return/Resolution
  • Once back to Ithaca, Athena disguises Odysseus as an old beggar so he is able to find out some information without revealing himself to his people. He soon learns that there are many suitors in his house all trying to take his wife's hand in marriage.
  • Over the course of the journey, Odysseus has realized that you are not able to do everything on your own. He seeks the help of Telemachus, Athena, and some of his servants. 
  • Odysseus goes into his house as a beggar and wins a challenge that Penelope has set up that only he would know how to do. Odysseus then reveals himself to everyone and then Telemachus, his servants and him fight and kill all of the suitors. To prove that it is really Odysseus, Penelope tells him that they have moved his bed. Odysseus knows this is not true because he built their bed around a tree and it is not able to be moved.
