This is a fairly amazing treatment of the life of The Odyssey in western culture. It covers the territory from the original to the recent movie "Troy," and makes stops at the Cream's "Tales of Brave Ulysses," and a brief mention of an opera wherein the actors all play dogs barking about Ulysses return to Ithaca. Quite a survey, and quite entertaining.
