However, the time came when Odysseus’ longing for Penelope, his wife, grew so strong that he could bear it no more. Wanting to tell Calypso, Odysseus instead told goddess Athena of his misery. Athena, being the protector of Odysseus, asked Zeus to demand the release of the hero. Zeus agreed and demanded Calypso to release Odysseus.

Calypso was angry at first and complained about how gods did not want goddesses to have affairs with mortals; however, she eventually backed out. Giving Odysseus wine, bread and a raft, she bade him farewell.
