MEDIA REVIEWS
[Lombardo] has brought his laconic wit and love of the ribald. . . to his version of the Odyssey . His carefully honed syntax gives the narrative energy and a whirlwind pace. The lines, rhythmic and clipped, have the tautness and force of Odysseus' bow.--Chris Hedges, The New York Times Book Review
The definitive English version of Homer for our time.-- The Common Review: The Magazine of the Great Books Foundation
Lombardo weaves his cherished idioms into important patterns of repetition and transformation so familiar to the telling of the Odyssey. . . Above all, such familiar phrases serve to remind us of the oral character of the original Odyssey , providing the reader with an uncanny immediacy and relevance.--Christina Zwarg, The Bryn Mawr Classical Review
