The tales of Odysseus related by way of cheeky Limericks by author Emily Wilson, who recently published a translation of Homer’s ’The Odyssey’.

And then there’s the bit where Odysseus’ men eat the cattle of Helios and are struck by a thunderbolt from Zeus.

But what of Athena and the cyclops Polyphemus?

Epic bantz.

But she’s no Moynes.

    …fair play Homer who gave us
    A grand tale about your man Odeysseus
    But it took our man Joyce
    To give them a voice
    Even got Penelope to say yes…
