Homer's Odyssey, the great epic prm about the adventure of Odysseus during his return from the Trojan war and the dramna of his homecoming, was translated by E V Rieu to ake homer enjoyable for those who are undamiliar with the Greek World. the result is a modern best-seller. Indeed the Odyssey, with its well knit plot, its psychological intest and the itnerplay of character, is the trye ancestor of the ancestor of the long line of novel that have followed it. Homer's vitality and freshness are undimmed in Dr. Rieu's lucid and senditive prose translation.
