Meet the Author

The ancient Greek poet Homer established the gold standard for heroic quests and sweeping journeys with his pair of classic epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey. Crowded with characters, both human and non-human, and bursting with action, the epic tales detail the fabled Trojan War and the adventures of Odysseus as he struggles to return home. Homer’s epics have inspired countless books and works of art throughout their long history.

This translation is fine, though rather dry, and it has one big problem: it uses the Roman names of the gods. Since this is a GREEK epic, it really should be using the Greek names (Zeus, not Jupiter; Hera, not Juno; Athena, not Minerva; and so forth). It will however, give you solid understanding of the events of the epic in an inexpensive format.

I give this an honest 4 stars for the fact that I love reading this kind of stuff. However, my one wish is that they could change the art cover for it. I also bought this book in Barnes and Noble Leather form and it has a nice rich, look to it. I was hoping they would just have that has the photo for the nook. But again, don't get me wrong. I love the stories in it.

There are dozens of translations of this classic. Nook doesn't list the translator, making it impossible to choose ....
