Abstract:

"This is a translation of the epic Greek poem by Homer."--Provided by publisher.

Green's new translation of The Odyssey is accompanied by an introduction, maps, chapter summaries, a glossary, and explanatory notes, making it the ideal translation for both general readers and students. With its lyrical mastery and superb command of Greek, Green's version offers readers the opportunity to enjoy Homer's epic tale of survival, temptation, betrayal, and vengeance with all of the verve and pathos of the original oral tradition. -- adapted from jacket
