A lean, fleet-footed translation that recaptures Homerâ€™s â€œnimble gallopâ€ and brings an ancient epic to new life.
The first great adventure story in the Western canon, The Odyssey is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty, and power; about marriage and family; about travelers, hospitality, and the yearning for home.
In this fresh, authoritative versionâ€•the first English translation of The Odyssey by a womanâ€•this stirring tale of shipwrecks, monsters, and magic comes alive in an entirely new way. Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, this engrossing translation matches the number of lines in the Greek original, thus striding at Homerâ€™s sprightly pace and singing with a voice that echoes Homerâ€™s music.
