Thousands of years ago, the Greek hero Odysseus was written about by Homer in The Odyssey.That’s the origin of the protagonist of Odysseus and Penelope.But even before that time, stories and tales of his heroism had been passed around through word-of-mouth for what seemed like an eternity to those who could not read or write,they were told during long days when people went on with their lives without electricity and didn’t have anything better to do than tell each other tall tales from generation to generation.
