The Illustrated Odyssey, Hardback Book

The Illustrated Odyssey Hardback

Part of the Illustrated Classic Editions series



Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who traveledfar and wide after he had sacked the famous town of Troy... So starts Homer's TheOdyssey, the classic account of the Greek hero Odysseus and histen-year journey home, following the glories and horrors of the Trojan War asrecounted in The Illiad. In this prose retelling of Homer's epic poem, we follow Homer and his shipmatesas they weather one danger after another, from the sorceress Circe to theone-eyed Cyclops, and the six-headed monster Scylla. Replete with classic drawings and colourful illustrations, this beautiful newedition of The Odysseyis just as gripping to read now as when it was first told to rapt Greekaudiences 2,500 years ago.
