Through its evocation of the age of Greek heroism, its depictions of gods and goddesses, its incredible series of adventures, and, above all, by its sheer narrative power, The Odyssey is among the greatest epics in the world. With its famous beginning, "Sing in me, Muse...," Robert Fitzgerald's poetic translation is unrivalled, and your better classes will appreciate its beauty.

Fitzgerald does try to maintain authenticity with the original Greek through names like "Kyklops" and "Telémakhos," which may seem odd to some readers. Prestwick House sells numerous other versions of The Odyssey, including Butler's prose version, which is available at a discount as a Literary Touchstone Classic.
