Eickhoff, a novelist, academic, and award-winning translator of the ancient Irish Ulster Cycle, here offers a prose translation of Homer's Odyssey.

[It also] includes valuable notes and appendixes."

REVIEWS

Praise for The Odyssey

"Homer's ancient song, The Odyssey, is a treasure waiting to be discovered by every generation. Eickhoff's fresh, bold, contemporary translation rivals Fitzgerald's. I highly recommend it."—Stephen Coonts

"What a book. It restores your faith in literature as well as in language. Eickhoff's personal story, told in his introduction, is almost as fascinating as the legendary tale."—Thomas Fleming, author of When This Cruel War Is Over

"Eickhoff's translation is so fresh, so accessible. He brings this classic masterpiece to vibrant life in the new millennium without sacrificing any of its Homeric grandeur. His clever mixture of verse and prose lets us hear the language of antiquity, while watching the actions of the protagonists in images as clear as those on a modern movie screen. We recognize these characters. We understand their loves and hates, we sympathize with their dilemmas. Eickhoff's gift is to invest both man and gods with humanity. There are fresh treasures in these pages for everyone."—Morgan Llywelyn, author of 1916

"I literally found myself cheering as Odysseus braved many perils and foes to return to his home and family, standing tall and prevailing. Such a compelling translation of one of my favorite classics."—R. J. Pineiro, author of Conspiracy.com

Many sea-lanes while struggling for his
Life and his men's return. His men, who
In their folly slew and consumed the holy
Cattle of the Sun, Hyperion,2 who
Therefore spurned their journey home.
Now, Muse, begin the tale of that man
