BeschreibungThe ancient Greek bard Homer established the standard for tales of epic quests and heroic journeys with "The Odyssey. Crowded with characters, both human and nonhuman, and bursting with action, "The Odyssey details the adventures of Odysseus, king of Ithaca and hero of the Trojan War, as he struggles to return to his home and his waiting, ever-faithful wife, Penelope. "The Odyssey is not only a rousing adventure story, but also a profound meditation on courage loyalty, family, fate, and undying love. More than three thousand years old, it was the first story to delineate carefully and exhaustively a single character are -- a narrative structure that serves as the foundation and heart of the modern novel Robert Squillace's revision of George Herbert Palmer's classic prose translation captures the drama and vitality of adventure, while remaining true to the original Homeric language.
