Josephine Preston Peabody is an American writer of verse dramas and of poetry that ranged from precise, ethereal verse to works of social concern. The Adventures of Odysseus consists of three abstracts which are called: THE CURSE OF POLYPHEMUS; THE WANDERING OF ODYSSEUS and THE HOME-COMING. Each abstract describes the adventures of Odysseus who suffered several hardships. Like other heroes, he wandered far before coming to their homes after the fall of Troy. It likewise tells about his voyage to Aeolia, home of the king of the winds, where they got good fortune. This story was written in a chronological way, and it helps to follow the trip of Odysseus without any problems. This story is based on the myth of Odysseus, that's why the reader can feel not only the mythical atmosphere, but also to know more about the Greek Myths.
