The Odyssey is a classic epic written by Homer. In my opinion, it is one of the best epics I have ever read. I will now try to prove how this story speaks to us in the twenty-first century. Some may think that The Odyssey is an old-fashioned story, but I will now prove otherwise.
The values of trust, courage, and discipline in The Odyssey are extremely high and valuable to Odysseus. Just being in

respect. Most people now really do not respect each other and I think it is a disgrace.
In conclusion, I would like to point out that The Odyssey really speaks out to us in 2002 or as Homer would say MMII. We really should have more values and our quality of life would go up. Maybe we should care more about people and ourselves, but as we can see in The Odyssey some things never change.
