<p>A lean, fleet-footed translation that recaptures Homer’s “nimble gallop” and brings an ancient epic to new life.</p><br /><p>The first great adventure story in the Western canon, <em>The Odyssey</em> is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty, and power; about marriage and family; about travelers, hospitality, and the yearning for home.</p><br /><p>In this fresh, authoritative version—the first English translation of <em>The Odyssey</em> by a woman—this stirring tale of shipwrecks, monsters, and magic comes alive in an entirely new way. Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, this engrossing translation matches the number of lines in the Greek original, thus striding at Homer’s sprightly pace and singing with a voice that echoes Homer’s music.</p><br /><p>Wilson’s <em>Odyssey</em> captures the beauty and enchantment of this ancient poem as well as the suspense and drama of its narrative. Its characters are unforgettable, from the cunning goddess Athena, whose interventions guide and protect the hero, to the awkward teenage son, Telemachus, who struggles to achieve adulthood and find his father; from the cautious, clever, and miserable Penelope, who somehow keeps clamoring suitors at bay during her husband’s long absence, to the “complicated” hero himself, a man of many disguises, many tricks, and many moods, who emerges in this translation as a more fully rounded human being than ever before.</p><br /><p>A fascinating introduction provides an informative overview of the Bronze Age milieu that produced the epic, the major themes of the poem, the controversies about its origins, and the unparalleled scope of its impact and influence. Maps drawn especially for this volume, a pronunciation glossary, and extensive notes and summaries of each book make this an <em>Odyssey</em> that will be treasured by a new generation of scholars, students, and general readers alike.</p>

A seductive mix of poetry and prose, <em>Luminae</em> is about soul-searching, longing, finding your truth, and feeling comfortable with an inner being who is both tender and strong.<br /><br /><em>Luminae</em> will resonate with intuitive souls, those who yearn to explore the wild depths of their true nature, and who believe they must hold sacred both the darkness and the light, without turning their backs on love. It speaks to those who embrace the totality of the human experience—even the difficult, ugly, and messy parts.<br /><br />Our chaotic world is starved for wholehearted, compassionate words like these. Now, more than ever, is the time to quiet the outside noise and come home to the splendor, power, and magic of yourself.<br /><br />Now is the time to experience <em>Luminae</em>.

Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, <i>Citizen</i> is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society.</p>
