Description of the book "The Odyssey of Homer":
Homer's epic chronicle of the Greek hero Odysseus' journey home from the Trojan War has inspired - -writers from Virgil to James Joyce. Odysseus - -survives storm and shipwreck, the cave of the Cyclops - -and the isle of Circe, the lure of the Sirens' song - -and a trip to the Underworld, only to find his - -most difficult challenge at home, where treacherous - -suitors seek to steal his kingdom and his loyal - -wife, Penelope. Favorite of the gods, Odysseus - -embodies the energy, intellect, and resourcefulness  PDF- -that were of highest value to the ancients and that - -remain ideals in out time.
In this - -new verse translation, Allen - -Mandelbaum—celebrated poet and translator of Virgil's - -Aeneid and Dante's Divine Comedy - -—realizes the power and beauty of the original - -Greek verse and demonstrates why the epic tale of - -The Odyssey has captured the human - -imagination for nearly three thousand - -years.
