Product description

This title presents Homer's 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. This is a superb new verse translation, now published in trade paperback, before the standard Penguin Classic B format.

Many people are scared of giving this fantastic story a go due to some poor wordy translations. This translation is definitely not one of those.
