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.
The Odyssey (World's Classics Series)by Homer
This first self-contained edition of Books VI-VIII of the Odyssey--the account of Odysseus' time among the Phaeacians--serves also as a popular introduction to Homer. The Commentary provides guidance on questions of literary and narrative technique and poetic artistry.
