Summary
  • "The Odyssey tells of the long and painful return of Odysseus from the Trojan War to his homeland of Ithaka, his wife Penelope, and his son Telemachos. Even after he finally returns, there are enemies to be fought in his house. The action of the poem covers a huge canvas, ranging widely over time and place, exploring the known and the unknown worlds, involving magic and monsters, gods and ghosts, dangers defied: throughout there runs a strong and eloquent insistence on the humanity of men and the ultimate triumph of good over evil." "This new translation by Martin Hammond complements his acclaimed translation of The Iliad. It captures as closely as possible both the simplicity and the intensity of Homer's epic."--Jacket
