Robert Fagles presents us with Homer's best-loved and most accessible poem in a stunning new modern-verse translation. If the Iliad is the world's greatest war epic, The Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of everyman's journey through life. Odysseus' reliance on his wit and wiliness for survival in his encounters with divine and natural forces during his ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the Trojan War is at once the timeless human story and an individual test of moral endurance.
