The most popular epic of Western culture springs to life in Allen Mandelbaum's magnificent tranlation. This robust, romantic, lyrical work has an openness and immediacy unsurpassed by any other translation. Homer's masterpiece tells the story of Odysseus, the ideal Greek hero, as he travels home to Ithaca after the Trojan War--a journey of ten years and countless thrilling adventures. Rich in Greek folklore and myth, featuring gods and goddesses, monsters and sorceresses, The Odyssey has enchanted listerners around the world for thousands of years. Mandelbaum's translation, read aloud, is a wonderful way to experience this enduring classic.
