Beauty Among the Ruins

In Homer's epic poem, the Odyssey, when Odysseus landed on Ogygia, Calypso, a minor Goddess, fell madly in love with him and decided to keep him as her immortal husband. With her captivating singing, she managed to detain the Odysseus for several years. Yet, the time came when Odysseus' longing for Penelope, his wife, grew so strong that he could bear it no more. Though he wished to tell Calypso of his longing, Odysseus instead told the Goddess Athena of his misery. Athena, being the protector of Odysseus, asked of the King of the Gods, Zeus to demand the release of the hero. Thus Calypso had to obey. Calypso, angry at first, complained about how Gods would not allow Goddesses to have any affairs with mortals. She relented, however, and granted Odysseus his freedom. Giving him wine, bread and a raft, she wished him farewell.

Thereafter, Calypso remained on her island, Ogygia, pining for Odysseus. Each morning she would make the trip to the top of her island, where her temple once stood proudly and had since fallen into ruin. There she would look out to the sea in the hope that one day Odysseus would return to her. There she stands throughout each day, an immortal Beauty Among the Ruins, longing for her lost love.
