    Ulysses, or Odysseus', adventures on the way home from the Trojan War have so fired the imaginations of later generations that the very word "odyssey" has entered our lexicon. In Book Ten, Odysseus has almost made it home with the help of a bag of winds given to him by the Wind God when his crew open the bag and the ship veers off course.

Throughout the poem, Odysseus is a series of apparent contradictions, a much more complicated character than we would find in any stereotypical epic hero.
