This epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan War forms one of the earliest works of Western literature. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats - shipwrecks, battles, monsters and the implacable enmity of the sea-god poseidon - Odysseus must test his bravery and native cunning to the full if he is to reach his homeland safely and overcome the obstacles that, even there, await him. For this edition, E.V. Rieu's original translation has been revised by his son, D.C.H. Rieu, and Peter Jones.
