The Odyssey (Greek: Ὀδύσσεια, Odysseia) is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems attributed to Homer. The Odyssey is, in part, a sequel to the Iliad, the other work traditionally ascribed to Homer. The poem The Odyssey is fundamental to the modern Western canon. Indeed it is the second—the Iliad being the first—extant work of Western literature. The Odyssey was probably composed near the end of the 8th century BC, somewhere in Ionia, the Greek-speaking coastal region of what is now Turkey.
The poem The Odyssey mainly centers on the Greek hero Odysseus (or Ulysses, as he was known in Roman myths) and his long journey home following the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War. In his absence, it is assumed he has died, and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must deal with a group of unruly suitors, the Mnesteres (Greek: Μνηστῆρες) or Proci, competing for Penelope's hand in marriage.

He offers her hospitality; they observe the Suitors dining rowdily while the bard Phemius performs a narrative poem for them.
