Calypso was the goddess-nymph of the island of Ogygia and a daughter of the Titan Atlas. Her name is related to a Greek word that means “to conceal” and she symbolized the forces that divert men from their goals. So it makes sense that Calypso is most remembered for her role in Homer’s Odyssey. In that story, she keeps Odysseus on her island of Ogygia to make him her immortal husband. She mesmerizes him with her singing and dances around, weaving on her loom with a golden shuttle. After several years though, Odysseus can’t stand being away from his wife Penelope any longer. Zeus orders Calypso to set Odysseus free and she does not take it well. She says that gods hate goddesses having affairs with mortals, but she eventually gives in. Drama, drama drama!
