"Tell me, muse, of theman of many ways, who was driven far journeys, after he had sacked troy'ssacred citadel." The Odyssey stands alone among the achievements ofWestern civilization as possibly the first, the most influential, and perhapsthe greatest work of literature ever recorded.

Conceived as an oral epic by the blind poet, Homer, in the 8th century B.C.E.,The Odyssey is the tale of one man's incredible courage, strength, andperseveranceagainst all odds. Returning victorious from the decade-long Trojan War,the heroic Odysseus must overcome angry gods, the dangers of wild andinhospitablelands, and his own stubborn pride if he is ever to see his wife and sonagain.

Rich in detail and filled with humor, symbolism, and timeless reflectionson the human condition, The Odyssey is poetry that demands to be read aloudand cherished forever.

Although recognized as one of the greatest ancient Greek poets, the life and figure of Homer remains shrouded in mystery. Credited with the authorship of the epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, Homer, if he existed, is believed to have lived during the ninth century BC, and has been identified variously as a Babylonian, an Ithacan, or an Ionian. Regardless of his citizenship, Homer’s poems and speeches played a key role in shaping Greek culture, and Homeric studies remains one of the oldest continuous areas of scholarship, reaching from antiquity through to modern times.
