Odysseus: The Great Greek Hero


Most people have heard about Odysseus before. He was one of the greatest Greek heroes in Homer’s epic poems: The Illiad and The Odyssey. Homer portrayed Odysseus as a man full of wisdom and courage who could handle anything thrown his way. In The Odyssey, Homer delves into what might be his most famous tale. The story of the Greeks capturing Troy through the famous wooden horse, winning the war.


The Fall of Troy began with a cunning plan. Odysseus and the Greek army devised a plan to deceive the Trojans to win the war differently. During the night, the Greeks left a large, wooden horse on wheels outside Troy’s gates. Then, the Trojans, who were surprised that there was no army nearby, took the horse inside. Surprisingly, the Trojans believed it was a gift from the Greeks signaling the end of the war.


But the Trojans were deceived. During the night, the few Greeks hiding within the horse snuck outside. They were now inside the inner gates of Troy and were able to catch the guards off guard carefully. Thus, the Greeks could open the gates and allow the entire Greek army to make its way inside. Odysseus and his men were able to win the war.
