About the Book: The Odyssey
Homers best-loved and most accessible poem, recounting the great wandering of
Odysseus during his ten-year voyage back home to Ithaca, after the Trojan War. A
superb new verse translation, now published in trade paperback, before the
standard Penguin Classic B format.
About the Author: Homer
Homer is a legendary ancient Greek poet, traditionally said to be the author of
the two great epics of Greek history: the Iliad and the Odyssey. Both books are
considered landmarks in human literature, and Homer is therefore often cited as
the starting point of Western literary and historical tradition. Stephanie L.
