about

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tale older than time I read Homer’s Odyssey for a course I took in university on Greek and Roman mythology. I only had a vague idea of the story before then so I was really glad to finally sit down and read and analyze it. Odysseus is an interesting character and I enjoyed following his years-long journey home after the Trojan War.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful In my life, I can say I have been sincerily affected by no more than four books. This is one of them. The Odyssey is a majestic masterpiece. There is no better tale of perserverance, fate interrupted and challenge. Odysseus' voyage home is inspirational and to be quite honest, the challenges he faces and how he faces them have never been so relevant in a world of chaos and short sightedness. I would recommend this for any individual- the messages are hugely relevant.
