Waterstones Says

An unquestionable cornerstone of Western literature, Homer’s epic on Odysseus’s 10-year journey home from the Trojan war and his wife Penelope’s faithful guardianship of their kingdom remains one of the greatest stories of courage, loyalty and survival ever told.

The epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan War forms one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats - ship-wrecks, battles, monsters and the implacable enmity of the sea-god Poseidon - Odysseus must use his bravery and cunning to reach his homeland and overcome the obstacles that, even there, await him. E. V. Rieu's translation of The Odyssey was the very first Penguin Classic to be published, and has itself achieved classic status.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Odyssey is a poem of extraordinary pleasures: it is a salt-caked, storm-tossed, wine-dark treasury of tales, of many twists and turns, like life itself' - Guardian
