Homer's Daughter, Paperback / softback Book

Homer's Daughter Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series


In Homer's Daughter Robert Graves recreates the Odyssey.

This bold retelling of the ancient epic imagines that its author was not the blind and bearded Homer of legend, but a young woman in Western Sicily who calls herself Nausicaa.

In Robert Graves's words, Homer's Daughter is 'the story of a high-spirited and religious-minded Sicilian girl who saves her father's throne from usurpation, herself from a distasteful marriage, and her two younger brothers from butchery by boldly making things happen, instead of sitting still and hoping for the best.'
