Summary
MYTH & LEGEND TOLD AS FICTION. Homer's two epics of the ancient world, "The Iliad & The Odyssey", tell stories as riveting today as when they were written between the eighth and ninth century B.C. "The Iliad", which tells of the siege of Troy by the Greeks, is an unforgettable tale of nations at war and of the courage and compassion heroic soldiers show upon the field of battle. "The Odyssey" is the story of the Greek hero Odysseus and the many marvels and challenges he encounters during his ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the end of the Trojan War. This edition employs Samuel Butler's classic translations of both texts. "The Iliad & The Odyssey" is part of "Barnes & Noble"'s series of quality leatherbound volumes. Each title in the series presents a classic work in an attractively designed edition bound in durable bonded leather. These books make elegant additions to any home library
