The story begins twenty years after Odysseus left to fight in the Trojan War, and ten years after he began his journey home to Ithaca. We enter the story in medias res — in the middle of things: Odysseus is trapped on an island with the lovesick goddess Calypso , while his wife and son suffer the transgressions of the suitors, noble young men who vie for queen Penelope 's hand. The loyal queen has rebuffed their advances for many years, because she holds out hope that Odysseus may one day return. In the meantime the suitors have run free in the household, holding noisy parties and draining the resources of the estate. The goddess Athena decides to intervene on Odysseus's behalf.
