This essay proposes that Athena is both the muse and heroine of Homer's Odyssey, and that her own heroic journey, an emotional-psychological transitions comparable to that of a human girl into womanhood, is a prominent subplot of the epic. I aim to provide a fresh and exciting interpretation of the Odyssey as a means of inspiring new readers as well as challenging existing criticism.
