Overview

Readable Classics gently edits the great works of literature, retaining the original authors’ voices, to provide study aids for students and make the classics more accessible to modern readers.

The Odyssey was written by the blind poet Homer over 2,800 years ago, one of the first and greatest works of Western literature. This epic tells the story of the Greek king Odysseus who, after fighting in the Trojan War for ten years, spends the next ten years trying to return home.

During his journey, he must confront monsters, hurricanes, shipwrecks, and the wrath of Poseidon, God of the Sea. When he finally returns home, he must ally with the goddess Athena and use his courage and cunning to regain his kingdom and his family from the evil men who would destroy him.
