Summary
In October 1945, at the age of 19, John Freely passed the southernmost tip of Crete on his way home from the war in China, just as Odysseus did on his homeward voyage from the battle of Troy. He has been mesmerized with Homer and the lands of Homer's epics ever since. This will be a traveler's guide to all of those places linked to Homer that can be identified and it will also speculate on where such places as the Land of the Lotus Eaters might be. Freely travels from Troy to the final return to Ithaca, and illuminates how the Homeric epics took their final form and their subsequent echoes in literature, art, legend and folklore
