Translated by a noted Canadian scholar, this translation of the Odyssey was created to provide an accurate text of the Iliad in a modern English poetic form. It was designed first and foremost for people who are reading Homer's Odyssey for the first time. The book is accompanied by a complete glossary, maps and other study aids intended to ensure that one's initial venture into the world of the Odyssey is a fruitful one. It is no accident that this tranlation was chosen by Naxos Audiobooks for its full-length recording of the poem (release date to be announced.)
