The Odyssey Author:Homer translated by E. V. Rieu Homer's "Odyssey", the great epic poem about the adventures of Odysseus during his return from the Trojan War and the drama of his homecoming, was translated by E. V. Rieu to make Homer enjoyable for those who are unfamiliar with the Greek world. The result is a modern best-seller. Indeed the Odyssey, 'with its well-knit plot, its psychologica... more »l interest and its interplay of character, is the true ancestor of the long line of novels that have followed it.'
Homer's vitality and freshness are undimmed in Dr. Rieu's lucid and sensitive prose translation.
