Product description


"Homer's Odyssey is still enchanting readers after thousands of years" (Guardian)

"Surely the best and truest Odyssey in the English language" (Herald Tribune)

"Fitzgerald is taking his place beside Chapman and Pope in the unbroken lineage of English Homeric translations...it has the economy and soar of a poet" (George Steiner)

"A strong salty flavour of its own. And it makes you see things" (C.S. Lewis)

"The Homeric poems are interesting...because of the way in which they present human shocks and surprises... It is the surprising twist that war brings to the domestic...which makes Homer repeatedly shocking" (London Review of Books)

Book Description

The best poetic version of The Odyssey to have appeared this century - Hugh Lloyd-Jones
