The Odyssey

Odysseus is cunning and strong. He is also sometimes foolish and proud. His son isn't developed much but there is a sense that he will replace his father in every sense. Penelope is also clever, she tests Odysseus by pretending to have moved the bed that he built from a living tree. So many of the images from this story have become western architypes. Odysseus' homecoming was my favorite part.
