ULYSSES | MITH´S TALE
ANIMATION BY JAVIER CHAVARRÍA
Ulysses, Odysseus in Greek, is king of Ithaca and husband of Penelope.
He spends ten years far from home fighting at the Trojan War, which ended thanks to his ingenious invention of the famous Trojan Horse to defeat the enemy.
When the Trojan War is over, he is willing to return home next to Penelope and their son Telemachus, but Gods order him to start a journey that lasted other ten years.
He meets Calypso, the conjurer, who is in love and retains him in her island; Cyclops, who will be blinded by Ulysses; Anthropophagous, who devour his warriors; his mother´s soul, crossing Hades river, the world of the dead; Sirens, whose chant he will resist tied up to his boat´s mast...
At his arrival to Ithaca, disguised like a beggar, he enters the Archery Competition, since the winner may marry Penelope. He beats his rivals and reveals his identity.
What happens later on will be written by whoever has been in love.
