Odyssey – Homer

Opis towaru

The classic tale of Odysseus’s return home in a stunning new translation.

THE ODYSSEY, which tells of Odysseus’s long voyage home after the battle of Troy, is one of the defining masterpieces of Western literature.

Populated by one-eyed man-eating giants, beautiful seductive goddesses, and lavishly hospitable kings and queens, it is an extraordinary work of the imagination, the original epic voyage into the unknown that has inspired other writing down through the ages – from ancient poems to modern fiction and films.

With its consummately modern hero, full of guile and wit, THE ODYSSEY is perfectly suited to our times.

Thanks to the scholarship and poetic power of the highly acclaimed Stephen Mitchell, this new translation recreates the energy and simplicity, the speed, the grace, and continual thrust and pull of the original, so that THE ODYSSEY’s ancient story bursts vividly into new life.

Odyssey – Homer

Opis towaru

Homer’s The Odyssey is an epic that has endured for thousands of years, and this Penguin Classics edition is translated by E.V. Rieu, revised by D.C.H. Rieu, and contains an introduction by Peter Jones.

The epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan war forms one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats – from the witch Circe who turns his men into pigs, to the twin terrors of Scylla and Charybdis; from the stupefied Lotus-Eaters to the implacable enmity of the sea-god Poseidon himself – Odysseus must test his bravery and native cunning to the full if he is to reach his homeland safely. But the danger is no less severe in his native Ithaca, as Odysseus finds himself contending with the suitors who, in his absence, have begun to surround his wife Penelope…

E.V. Rieu’s translation of The Odyssey was the first Penguin Classic to be published, and has itself achieved classic status. For this edition, Rieu’s text has been sensitively revised and a new introduction added to complement his original introduction.

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 Homer’s The Iliad, also available in Penguin Classics.

‚One of the world’s most vital tales … The Odyssey remains central to literature’

Odyssey – Homer

Opis towaru

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. A superb new verse translation, now published in trade paperback, before the standard Penguin Classic B format. Please note that this is a ‚roughcut’ edition and as such the pages have uneven edges.
