Good print, very good paper quality
24 March 2017
This review is for “The Odyssey” of Homer ISBN 9780140268867
Printed in the United States of America.
Penguin classics deluxe edition with deckle edge. Deckle edge means that the edge of the book is intentionally cut zigzag to resemble older printing methods.
Paper colour: Yellowish white, Font size: OK. Regular penguin font size. Paper quality: Very good. Contains notes at the end with a pronouncing glossary. A modest amount of genealogy is provided just before notes. The version I received has the scarlet band in the middle of the front cover slightly glossy, which was liked by me a lot.
This is a major translation of the poem written by Homer. Like the original, this translation is also a poem (I must say that in the beginning lest those who do not have guts to read poetry may regret their purchase). It is the second part of Homer’s epic, in which the first part is The Iliad.
