Often called the "second work of Western literature" (Homer's Iliad, written earlier, being the first), The Odyssey is not only a rousing adventure drama, but also a profound meditation on courage, loyalty, family, fate, and undying love. Over three thousand years old, it was the first story to delineate carefully and exhaustively a single character arc--a narrative structure that serves as the foundation and heart of the modern novel. Robert Squillace's revision of George Herbert Palmer's classic prose translation captures the drama and vitality of the adventure, while remaining true to the original Homeric language.

The Odyssey, Homer’s great epic, tells the tale of the Greek hero, Odysseus, Chief of Ithaka, one of the most versatile and fascinating characters in literature. Odysseus returns to his wife and son in Ithaka after the fall of Troy, and avenges himself on enemy suitors who have invaded his homestead. His journey back takes him ten years, in which time he encounters cannibal monsters, mysterious divine beings and amorous goddesses. This new translation, with its generous African texturing, will delight lovers of poetry and students of the Classics alike.
