9781435145382: Iliad & The Odyssey, The (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classic Collection)

Homer's two epics of the ancient world, The Iliad & The Odyssey, tell stories as riveting today as when they were written between the eighth and ninth century B.C. The Iliad, which tells of the siege of Troy by the Greeks, is an unforgettable tale of nations at war and of the courage and compassion heroic soldiers show upon the field of battle. The Odyssey is the story of the Greek hero Odysseus and the many marvels and challenges he encounters during his ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the end of the Trojan War. This edition employs Samuel Butler's classic translations of both texts.

About the Author:

Homer is a legendary ancient Greek poet, traditionally said to be the author of the two great epics of Greek history: the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey." Both books are considered landmarks in human literature, and Homer is therefore often cited as the starting point of Western literary and historical tradition. Stephanie L. Budin earned her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. She lives in Camden, NJ.

About the Author:

Ancient Greek poet Homer established the gold standard for heroic quests and sweeping journeys with his pair of classic epic poems, although very little is known about him. He has fascinated scholars for centuries and there is much disagreement about where he was from and when The Odyssey and The Iliad were written. There is no doubt, however, that these two poems form one of the foundations of Western literature.
