HOMER, ODYSSEY 3
It is one of the oldest extant works of literature still read by contemporary audiences. As with the Iliad , the poem is divided into 24 books. After the war itself, which lasted ten years, his journey lasts for ten additional years, during which time he encounters many perils and all his crewmates are killed. In his absence, Odysseus is assumed dead, and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must contend with a group of unruly suitors who compete for Penelope's hand in marriage. In antiquity , Homer's authorship of the poem was not questioned, but contemporary scholarship predominantly assumes that the Iliad and the Odyssey were composed independently, and the stories themselves formed as part of a long oral tradition.

For the return of Odysseus — he of steadfast resolve — so that this homecoming will be. And permit his mother — and whomsoever took her as wife — to have his dwelling! Then the goddess Athena — she with those beautiful blue eyes — resolved to do something else. So it was that Athena — she with those beautiful blue eyes — sent them a fair-following breeze.

Стратмор заговорил тише, явно желая ее успокоить: - Я бы не назвал этого парня панком. Но Сьюзан его не слушала. Она была убеждена, что должно найтись какое-то другое объяснение.
Неужели. - Да.
Стратмор кивнул: - Танкадо хотел от него избавиться. Он подумал, что это мы его убили. Он почувствовал, что умирает, и вполне логично предположил, что это наших рук. Тут все совпадает.
