Robert Fitzgerald's is the best and best-loved modern
translation of The Odyssey, and the only one admired in its own
right as a great poem in English. Fitzgerald's supple verse
is ideally suited to the story of Odysseus' long journey back to
his wife and home after the Trojan War. Homer's tale of love,
adventure, food and drink, sensual pleasure, and mortal danger
reaches the English-language reader in all its glory.
