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.
