Description

About the Book: The Odyssey

Literatures grandest evocation of lifes journey, at once an ageless human story and an individual test of moral endurance, Homers ancient Greek epic The Odyssey is translated by Robert Fagles with an introduction and notes by Bernard Knox in Penguin Classics. When Robert Fagles translation of The Iliad was published in 1990, critics and scholars alike hailed it as a masterpiece. Here, one of the great modern translators presents us with The Odyssey, Homers best-loved poem, recounting Odysseus wanderings after the Trojan War. With wit and wile, the man of twists and turns meets the challenges of the sea-god Poseidon, and monsters ranging from the many-headed Scylla to the cannibalistic Cyclops Polyphemus-only to return after twenty years to a home besieged by his wife Penelopes suitors. In the myths and legends retold in this immortal poem, Fagles has captured the energy of Homers original in a bold, contemporary idiom. Seven greek cities claim the honour of being the birthplace of Homer (c. 8th-7th century BC), the poet to whom the composition of the Iliad and Odyssey are attributed. The Iliad is the oldest surviving work of Western literature, but the identity-or even the existence-of Homer himself is a complete mystery, with no reliable biographical information having survived. If you enjoyed The Odyssey, you might like Robert Fagles translation of The Iliad, also available in Penguin Classics. Wonderfully readable ...

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. Budin earned her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. She lives in Camden, NJ.
