The Odyssey is an epic story that has been a significant piece of literature since it was first written and will remain so for ages to come. One of the reasons it has been so is because of the hero, Odysseus. Odysseus is one of the first Greek mythic heroes renowned for his brain as well as his muscle, thus his popular title of the ?Schemer?. Indeed he is a man with an inquiring mind, and he is also a man with outstanding prowess and bravery. He is also a top-notch athlete, which only adds more to this seemingly unbeatable character. Odysseus seemed insuperable because not only his great strength and brains, but also his connections with the Gods; in this essay, it?ll be shown how all these great traits of Odysseus makes him the most powerful hero ever to be written.
Strength is something Odysseus knows he has, and knows its limits. In the story, Odysseus used his brain and strength as one. This is shown with the Cyclops on their great island. ?Fortunately, however, further thinking pushed my hands from my weapon, for if I had killed him, then Death would soon have come for us as well.
