Details

Story: Calypso was a nymph in Greek mythology, who lived on the island of Ogygia, where she detained Odysseus for seven years. She attempts to keep the fabled Greek hero on her island to make him her immortal husband. According to legend, Calypso enchants Odysseus with her singing as she moves to and fro, weaving on her loom with a golden shuttle. Odysseus soon comes to wish for something more authentic.
