Product Description:

Homer's best-loved and most accessible poem, recounting the great wandering of Odysseus during his ten-year voyage back home to Ithaca, after the Trojan War.

Product Description:

Translated in heroic couplets by Alexander Pope, The Odyssey is a sequel to Homer's The Iliad. Odysseus, the captain of Greeks and the hero of Trojan War, is returning home to his wife in Ithaca after the Greek victory. He faces dangers and trials beyond measure.
