'The Odysseyis a poem of extraordinary pleasures: it is a salt-caked, storm-tossed, wine-dark treasury of tales, of many twists and turns, like life itself'Guardian

The epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan War forms one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats - ship-wrecks, battles, monsters and the implacable enmity of the sea-god Poseidon - Odysseus must use his bravery and cunning to reach his homeland and overcome the obstacles that, even there, await him. E. V. Rieu's translation ofThe Odysseywas the very first Penguin Classic to be published, and has itself achieved classic status.

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
Greek Edition

The Odyssey is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems attributed to Homer. It is, in part, a sequel to the Iliad, the other work ascribed to Homer. The poem is fundamental to the modern Western canon, and is the second oldest extant work of Western literature, the Iliad being the oldest. It is believed to have been composed near the end of the 8th century BC, somewhere in Ionia, the Greek coastal region of Anatolia. The poem mainly centres on the Greek hero Odysseus (known as Ulysses in Roman myths) and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War. In his absence, it is assumed he has died, and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must deal with a group of unruly suitors, the Mnesteres, who compete for Penelope's hand in marriage.


Authoritative prose translation by Martin Hammond, translator of the Penguin Classics edition of the Iliad

An excellent version... it may well prove the translation for this and the next generation.
Hammond's admirable remarkably successful in combining accuracy with a lively and highly readable style
Martin Hammond's new version is clearly a labour of love and a wonderful achievement as it has none [of the faults of other versions] and although it is in prose, if read aloud the prose transforms itself into poetry. It is as close to the Greek as it is possible to get and keeps all the formulaic patterns so that the music of the original shines out and rings in the ear...It is instilled with magic Mediterranean light...I have now read it seven times and find I get more from each re-reading
Hammond's precise and highly readable translation embraces not only the immediate human appeal of the Odyssey but also much of what is alien to modern literary culture: 'modes of speech, insistent narrative sequencing, the wealth of formulaic repetition' ... [It] offers Anglophone readers a faithful and direct experience of the style and manner of Homer's great poem.
Overall this is a highly professional production, to be seriously considered for textbook use in the classroom.
Hammond succeeds admirably in presenting a translation that is easy and enjoyable to read and faithful to Homer
This is a magnificent piece of work..I enjoyed reading [Hammond's] Odyssey enormously. It is more years than I care to think since I read the work from end to end. Hammond's translation moved me to do so within a day, and that is a tribute indeed. This is a first-class work which should give pleasure to both those who read Greek and those who do not - and deserves to attract many to read Homer for whom that is as yet a pleasure in store
