This book makes the case that the plot of the "Odyssey" is represented within the narrative as a plan of Zeus, Dios boule, that serves as a guide for the performing poet and as a hermeneutic for the audience. The Zeus-centric reading proposed here offers fresh perspectives on the tenor of interactions among the "Odyssey" s characters.
