The Wanderings of Odysseus: The Story of the Odyssey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The long siege of Troy is over, and the city is in ashes. Heroic King Odysseus can finally return to Ithaca, but the voyage home holds terrors far greater than any he faced during the Trojan War. Storms have thrust Odysseus's ship into unknown waters. Here he must confront not only the blunders of his crew, but far stranger perils: the one-eyed, flesh-eating Cyclops; Circe, the enchantress with the power to turn men into swine; the unnerving trip through the Land of the Dead. And when he finally reaches home, he finds his palace overrun by loutish suitors fighting to win the affections of his adored wife Penelope. Odysseus has one last thrilling battle to fight before he can reclaim his wife and his kingdom. Rosemary Sutcliff's vivid transformation brings Homer's Odyssey to life for a new generation. While simplified, the story is never dumbed down, making it an excellent introduction to Greek mythology for readers of all ages.

Synopsis:

A master storyteller and an award-winning illustrator evoke the golden age of mythical Greece in this spirited retelling of The Odyssey.

From the Hardcover edition.
