After the Trojan War, Odysseus disappears for ten years in the Mediterranean Sea. On the island of Ithaca, his wife Penelope is overrun at the palace by suitors who try in every way to woo and force her to marry again. His son Telemachus decides to go searching for him. Odysseus, however, is not dead: he was captured by the nymph Calypso, who, after an intervention of the Gods, releases Odysseus. The hero sets sail, but is shipwrecked on an island. There, he is rescued by Princess Nausicaa, daughter of King Alcinous. The king welcomes Odysseus, who tries to conceal his identity. Finally revealed, he begins to tell about the adventures and travels he had on his way back from the Trojan War. One segment involves his encounter with Polyphemus, the Cyclops.
