Abstract: Odysseus, the king of Ithaka, was destined to spend some time on the 'tree-clad' island of Ogygia on which he had been washed in one of his many wanderings after the sack of Troy. The island was inhabited by the nymph Calypso, the daughter of Atlas, who kept Odysseus in her beautiful cave and allured him with her charms. At the instigation of the goddess Athene, Zeus, the father of the Gods, sent his messenger Hermes to the little island to urge Calypso to release Odysseus. The nymph obeyed but with the greatest reluctance. Odysseus was released and left the island for good.
