<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>

<p><strong>With her virtuoso translation, classicist and bestselling author Caroline Alexander brings to life Homer’s timeless epic of the Trojan War</strong></p><p>Composed around 730 B.C., Homer’s <em>Iliad</em> recounts the events of a few momentous weeks in the protracted ten-year war between the invading Achaeans, or Greeks, and the Trojans in their besieged city of Ilion. From the explosive confrontation between Achilles, the greatest warrior at Troy, and Agamemnon, the inept leader of the Greeks, through to its tragic conclusion, The Iliad explores the abiding, blighting facts of war.</p><p>Soldier and civilian, victor and vanquished, hero and coward, men, women, young, old—<em>The Iliad </em>evokes in poignant, searing detail the fate of every life ravaged by the Trojan War. And, as told by Homer, this ancient tale of a particular Bronze Age conflict becomes a sublime and sweeping evocation of the destruction of war throughout the ages.</p><p>Carved close to the original Greek, acclaimed classicist Caroline Alexander’s new translation is swift and lean, with the driving cadence of its source—a translation epic in scale and yet devastating in its precision and power.</p>

Skull and Crossbones: This is a work of fiction. Read not faint at heart, especially if ye know of me.<br /><br />The author describes this book as too hot to trot for most masses. It's a thrill ride in these pages, strangely addictive smells like never bored to death. Psome poems smack of too much tv, raised by adult entertainment and love love love music. The writer was distracted by truth for want of wanting the beatitude enlightenment that comes from finding a soulmate hook up. One night stand and explode into cosmic ease and understanding...<br /><br />That perfect night again and again.<br /><br />Poetry written for none and all. Read this book from beginning to end. <br /><br />Think prison, parole, prison, and so on...
