The Odyssey is an epic poem that is about Ulysses, who is coming back from war. He goes on a journey while trying to go home. He faces a Cyclops who tries to kill him. He also endures the sirens which seek to seduce him. There are several themes throughout the story. One of them is that good triumphs over evil. This can be seen in the many different problems he encounters.

All of these things that he faces are evil. He can fight against them when he meets them. That is why this theme is the best to describe the Odyssey. Some other evils that he encounters on his journey include a whirlpool in the ocean and monsters that have several heads.

The correct answer to this question is A, good triumphs over evil. Throughout the ancient Gree epic poem, 'The Odyssey,' attributed to Homer, Odysseus constantly faces trials about character. He constantly suceeds becaue he is a good person.

For example, with the Sirens, he sacrifices himself to conquer them, saving all future sailors along with those he was traveling with. Additionally, he defeats all of Penelope's suitors, another example of good triumphing evil. This epic poem is akin to a moral tale of acting and being one's best, which Odysseus is a prime example of. Scholars believe 'The Odyssey' was written near the end of the 8th century BC.
