Book Overview
THE GREATEST ADVENTURE OF ALL TIME--NOW WITH A NEW AFTERWORD. Homer's Odyssey has been called the first novel, the first expression of the mind in literary form, and the best story ever written. Whether fans of suspense, fantasy or human drama, readers of all ages thrill to Homer's vibrant picture of Odysseus on his decade-long journey, as he meets the lotus-eaters, cunningly flees Cyclops, angers his gods, resists the sexy Sirens, narrowly escapes Scylla and Charybdis, averts his eyes from Medusa, docks in exotic cities--all the while struggling to make it home to his wife and son. Adventure on the high seas, legendary romance, tests of endurance, betrayal, heroism--the saga has all these and more, imagined by the most famous bard of all time. But, as Aristotle pointed out, his greatness was that he himself was nowhere to be found in his story. His characters were everywhere. Blind and possibly illiterate, Homer has still in loftiness of thought surpass'd* any storyteller since 900 B.C.E. *John Dryden
