An excerpt from the Odyssey performed by Odds Bodkin. In Homer’s The Odyssey, we do not meet the hero Odysseus for the first four books of the epic poem. Throughout his adventures, Odysseus uses his cleverness and wit to make a name for himself among the Ancient Greek heroes. Dr. Stanley Benfell, of the Comparative Arts & Letters Department at Brigham Young University, helps us introduce this episode of The Odyssey in which Odysseus tricks the Cyclops, Polyphemus. Find other episodes of the Odyssey by searching "Odyssey" in the archive searchbar, and find more of Odds Bodkin's work by visiting www.oddsbodkin.net.
