"A New York Times Notable Book of 2018 Wilson17s language is fresh, unpretentious and lean30It is rare to find a translation that is at once so effortlessly easy to read and so rigorously considered. 13Madeline Miller, author of CirceComposed at the rosy-fingered dawn of world literature almost three millennia ago, The Odyssey is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war about wealth, poverty and power about marriage and family about travelers, hospitality, and the yearning for home.This fresh, authoritative translation captures the beauty of this ancient poem as well as the drama of its narrative. Its characters are unforgettable, none more so than the 20complicated21 hero himself, a man of many disguises, many tricks, and many moods, who emerges in this version as a more fully rounded human being than ever before.Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, Emily Wilson17s Odyssey sings with a voice that echoes Homer17s music matching the number of lines in the Greek original, the poem sails along at Homer17s swift, smooth pace.A fascinating, informative introduction explores the Bronze Age milieu that produced the epic, the poem17s major themes, the controversies about its origins, and the unparalleled scope of its impact and influence. Maps drawn especially for this volume, a pronunciation glossary, and extensive notes and summaries of each book make this is an Odyssey that will be treasured by a new generation of readers. 3 maps
