The Odyssey (along with the Iliad) is one of the oldest and most famous pieces of Western literature. I think everyone in Europe, the Americas, and Australia learns the basic story at a young age (not many have actually read the story though), although I'm not sure if you'll have heard of it growing up in China. The story follows the voyage of Odysseus (his name was translated into Latin as "Ulysses", and it seems his Spanish name is derived from his Latin name) following the battle of Troy. The story is called "奥德赛" in Chinese, and Odysseus/Ulysses is called "奥德修斯". It's a sequel to the Iliad (伊利亚特), about the Trojan War (特洛伊战争), which you might be more familiar with.
