Believed she was the goddess of tides
Flooded lands for Poseidon’s kingdom
Zeus turned her into a monster because she had gotten too much
land for her father’s kingdom
She swallows huge amounts of water and belches them out, three
times a day
Represents the three high – low tides of the day
She lives in a cave at the side of the Strait of Messina, next to

"So with much lamenting we [Odysseus and his

Charybdis sucked the salt water in. When she
spewed it forth, she seethed and swirled through
all her depths like a cauldron set on a great fire,
and overhead the spray fell down on the tops of

him immortality if he stayed with her

back to his wife
Odysseus was a prisoner with her for 7
She had two children with Odysseus

Zeus sent a messenger, Hermes, to persuade

him with food, wine, and good winds

desolate sea," said Hermes. "I bring a
message from Zeus: Send Odysseus home.“
"You jealous gods! Can't you bear to see one of
us keep a mortal of her own?" cried Calypso.

others rather than listening to
your conscience
‘“Come this way, honored Odysseus, great glory
of the Achaeans, and stay your ship, so that you
can listen here to our singing; for no one else has
ever sailed past this place in his black ship until
he has listened to the honey-sweet voice that
issues from our lips; then goes on…Over all the
generous earth we know everything that
happens.” So they sang, in sweet utterance, and
the heart within me desired to listen, and I
signaled my companions to set me free…
straightway fastened me with even more
lashings and squeezed me together.”
