The Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of everyman's journey through life-at once an ageless human story and an individual test of moral endurance. 'Wonderfully readable . . . Just the right blend of roughness and sophistication.' - Ted Hughes 'A memorable achievement . . . Mr. Fagles has been remarkably successful in finding a style that is of our time and yet times.' - Richard Jenkyns, The New York Times Book Review 'I have Robert Fagles to thank for a new and precious gift. He has let me hear the rhapsode work his magic, and held me spellbound in those shadowy hills.' - Peter Green, The New Republic 'Robert Fagles is the best living translator of ancient Greek drama, lyric poetry, and epic into modern English, and his translation of The Odyssey is the best work yet.' - Gary Wills, The New Yorker
