Homer's epic chronicle of the Greek hero Odysseus' journey home from the Trojan War has inspired  writers from Virgil to James Joyce. Odysseus  survives storm and shipwreck, the cave of the Cyclops  and the isle of Circe, the lure of the Sirens' song  and a trip to the Underworld, only to find his  most difficult challenge at home, where treacherous  suitors seek to steal his kingdom and his loyal  wife, Penelope. Favorite of the gods, Odysseus  embodies the energy, intellect, and resourcefulness  that were of highest value to the ancients and that  remain ideals in out time.

In this  new verse translation, Allen  Mandelbaum--celebrated poet and translator of Virgil's  Aeneidand Dante'sDivine Comedy  --realizes the power and beauty of the original  Greek verse and demonstrates why the epic tale of  The Odysseyhas captured the human  imagination for nearly three thousand  years."A splendid achievement outstripping all  competitors."--Anthony A. Long, author of  Hellenistic Philosophy

"With real poetic power...his book is  one no lover of living poetry should  miss."--The New York Times Book Review  Homerwas a Greek poet, recognized as the author of the great epics, theIliad, the story of the siege of Troy, and theOdyssey, the tale of Ulysses’s wanderings.

Allen Mandelbaumwas born in 1926 and died in 2011. His translations of Homer, Dante, Virgil, Quasimodo, and Ungaretti were all published to great acclaim. His rendering ofThe Aeneidwon the National Book Award. He was the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Humanities at Wake Forest University, North Carolina.Book I
