1894As you set out for Ithaka

hope your road is a long one,

full of adventure, full of discovery.

Laistrygonians, Cyclops,

angry Poseidon-don't be afraid of them:

you'll never find things like that on your way

as long as you keep your thoughts raised high,

as long as a rare excitement

stirs your spirit and your body.

Laistrygonians, Cyclops,

wild Poseidon-you won't encounter them

unless you bring them along inside your soul,

unless your soul sets them up in front of you.Hope your road is a long one.

May there be many summer mornings when,

with what pleasure, what joy,

you enter harbors you're seeing for the first time;

may you stop at Phoenician trading stations

to buy fine things,

mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony,

sensual perfume of every kind-

as many sensual perfumes as you can;

and may you visit many Egyptian cities

to learn and go on learning from their scholars.Keep Ithaka always in your mind.

Arriving there is what you're destined for.

But don't hurry the journey at all.

Better if it lasts for years,

so you're old by the time you reach the island,

wealthy with all you've gained on the way,

not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.

Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey.

Without her you wouldn't have set out.

She has nothing left to give you now.And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you.

Wise as you will have become, so full of experience,

you'll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.

I also believe it is a picture of a long life and Gods promises as a believer. Keeps us from evil devouring us, keeps us from pride and extreme out of control anger. Are harbors a safe,plentiful and full of knowledge until we reach or final destination. If our journey is long then we will be full of rich knowledge and wisdom.

Ithaka is about about facing fears and enjoying life for the things that are most important in shaping us as human beings. Experiences, and the wisdom that is gained from them. It is an inspirational poem and i use it as a reminder when i find myself in a comfort zone and i have doubts or fear about setting upon a new adventure in life.

The poem \'Ithaca\' according to me, concentrates more on a journey which is neither good nor bad.It is an emphasis on the journey rather than the moral issues about life. The destination is neither hell nor heaven....how did we enjoy the journey that began at birth..that is what matters...For Odysseus the real journey of his life was after the Trojan War...learning in the true sense of the term began only then.

my favorite poem of all time!
Basically saying life is a journey. It\'s all about the climb and not what\'s on the other side.. Learn from others, and be confident in your dreams...after all life is a journey...success is a journey...life is a climb but the view is great..and when you get there, it doesn\'t matter if it offers you riches or turns out to be the opposite of what you\'re looking for...but atleast you\'ll learn the meaning of what it takes to get there...

The poem is talking about reaching one's supreme goal in life.It tells us that then journey though is worth more to us than reaching our goal.For it will better us and help us find ourselves.Thats why this poem has so many different interpretations ,because everyone has their own prime goal in life and we all are working to reach it whether it be fame,fortune,love or wealth.We all have something to learn from this poem.
