The Odyssey (Clothbound Hardcover)

by Homer

The Odyssey, an epic poem by Homer, tells the tale of war hero Odysseus and his long journey home to Ithaca after the Trojan War. Odysseus is known for his wit, craft, and cunning, traits he uses to escape danger and eventually return to Ithaca.
One of the greatest works of ancient literature. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats - shipwrecks, battles, monsters and the implacable enmity of the sea-god Poseidon - Odysseus must use his wit and native cunning if he is to reach his homeland safely and overcome the obstacles that, even there, await him. 

The Journey Home

The Odyssey can be found on every list of the world's greatest books. From the beginning of Western literature, readers have appreciated these two epic poems for their ability to make us reflect on the full range of human concerns and emotions as well as for sheer entertainment. 

A Storyteller's Essential

Full of tests, turns, adventure and perils, The Odyssey traces a story from voyages on untenanted seas, to wild and vile islands full of Godspawn and beasts, to far beyond earthly boundaries in the Houses of the Dead. Odysseus is both trickster, diplomat and strategist - the "man of twists and turns" - an embodiment of human wanderings. The narrative structures and conceits within are useful to any writer embarking on their own authorial journey.

Bound in tactile cloth stamped with a sea-green ribbon within.
