The first great adventure story in the Cannon West, Odyssey is a poem about violence and the consequences of war; about wealth, poverty and power; about marriage, family and identity; and about travelers, the hotel industry and the changing meaning of home in a strange world.This lively new translation of the first one by a woman corresponds to the number of lines in the original Greek, walking at Homer’s lively rhythm.Emily Wilson uses elementary, resonant language and one to five on the timeline to produce a translation with an enchanting “rhythm and rumble” that avoids announcing her own grandeur.A captivating story told in a new and interesting vocal novel that allows contemporary readers to bask in Homer’s descriptions and comparisons and strong sensations to the tension and excitement of his adventurous heroes, Wilson takes up what is “epic” about this source of world literature.
