Robert Fagles's stunning modern-verse translation-available at last in our black-spine classics line
The Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of everyman's journey through life. In the myths and legends that are retold here, renowned translator Robert Fagles has captured the energy and poetry of Homer's original in a bold, contemporary idiom and given us an "Odyssey" to read aloud, to savor, and to treasure for its sheer lyrical mastery. This is an "Odyssey" to delight both the classicist and the general reader, and to captivate a new generation of Homer's students.

Wonderfully readable... Just the right blend of roughness and sophistication. (Ted Hughes)Robert Fagles is the best living translator of ancient Greek drama, lyric poetry, and epic into modern English. (Garry Wills, "The New Yorker")Mr. Fagles has been remarkably successful in finding a style that is of our time and yet timeless. (Richard Jenkyns, "The New York Times Book Review")
