The sea repeats. The day repeats. The night repeats. And home, home is the ultimate repetition.

Don't read this book - listen to it. Epic poetry is meant to be recited...

This translation is a must read for anyone interested in literature, classics, or history. The pace of the story is amazing with action and adventure mixed in with society and home life.
