CALL TO ADVENTURE Odysseus leaves Ithica to fight in the Trojan War. The war lasts 10 years. Odysseus comes up with a plan and the Greeks won the war, he and his men sail back to Ithica
MENTORS AND HELPERS the many gods that helped/mentored Odysseus was Circe, Hermes, & most of all Athena. Circe by showing hospitality & telling them where they need to go next. Hermes by giving Odysseus a herb to protect him from Circe's witchcraft. Athena by reuniting Odysseus with his son, Telemachus
TESTS AND ENEMIES Odysseus comes across many enemies & faces many problems throughout his journey to get back to his wife & son. Poseidon makes it more difficult after they blind his son Polyphemus. The Sirens, Scylla & Charybdis, make the end a struggle. 6 of his men lost to them but good thing it was nothing more, I think Eurymachus was hos biggest, he tried to take his world.
