Robert Fagles's stunning modern-verse translation-available at last in our black-spine classics line The Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of everyman's journey through life. In the myths and legends that are retold here, renowned translator Robert Fagles has captured the energy and poetry of Homer's original in a bold, contemporary idiom and given us an Odyssey to read aloud, to savor, and to treasure for its sheer lyrical mastery. This is an Odyssey to delight both the classicist and the general reader, and to captivate a new generation of Homer's students.

5.0 Representation of Human: "The Odyssey" by Homer (translated by Robert Fitzgerald; read by Dan Stevens)
I humbly declare this book to be the greatest literary work of mankind. If you don't learn Greek (worth it just to read this Meisterwerk, never mind the rest of the immortal trove of Greek literature) you can read it in so many translations that have become classics in their own use of the English l...

5.0 The Odyssey
Gran obra junto con La Ilíada épicas, sorprendentes, un poco complicadas... pero excelentes. Si no están familiarizad@s con el tema les recomiendo que lean un poco de Mitología y Cultura Griega. Recomiendo estas obras del gran poeta Homero. Sin duda uno de mis favoritos.
