CALYPSO

Greek Silent Goddess

Also known as KALYPSO

Goddess of Shhh and secret lover of Odysseus

CALYPSO is a deity of silence. Which makes you wonder why Calypso music is so boisterous.

The daughter of ATLAS, she was one of the NYMPHS and lived on the island of Ogygia in a state of extreme loneliness and boredom.

She had a fling with the shipwrecked hero ODYSSEUS but it was a very quiet affair. He wasn’t that into her but his protests fell on deaf ears. When he was rescued by HERMES, the distraught CALYPSO apparently died of grief. We understand ODYSSEUS managed to keep the whole thing hushed up.
