She took care of Odysseus, helped him regain strength, and kept him as her man in her spacious grotto. The goddess Athena observed everything from Olympus, the high mountain where all gods lived.
One day, she went up to the father of the gods: "Almighty Zeus," she said. "All the Greek heroes who fought in Troy are already back home except Odysseus, who for seven years now has been stranded on a forested island in the middle of the sea, where a little goddess is in charge. It is Calypso, daughter of Atlas. With endearment and flattery she tries to mesmerize him, so he forgets about Ithaca.
