The Odyssey is, quite simply, the story of Odysseus, who wants to go home. But Poseidon, god of oceans, doesn't want him to make it back across the wine-dark sea to his wife, Penelope, son, Telemachus, and their high-roofed home at Ithaca.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way... I haven't read the book - maybe one day - as I bought books from this series purely for their beauty. And they didn't disappoint. A must for any collector.
