Description

The Odyssey of Homer This is the Homeric sequel the tale of Ulysses, beset by a series of ever fantastic adventures on the way home from the Trojan War to his wife, patient Penelope The vivid adventures of our ill fated protagonist come to life in Butler s prose translation, told in a highly readable modern voice, informed by archaic consciousness The Iliad of Homer This is Samuel Butler s translation of the core story of the Trojan War The tale of the fateful war between the Achaeans and the city of Troy is one of the masterpieces of world literature The Iliad, together with the Odyssey, is one of two ancient Greek epic poems traditionally attributed to Homer The poem is commonly dated to the 8th or 7th century BC, and many scholars believe it is the oldest extant work of literature in the Greek language, making it the first work of European literature The existence of a single author for the poems is disputed as the poems themselves show evidence of a long oral tradition and hence, multiple authors The poem concerns events during the tenth and final year in the siege of the city of Iliun, or Troy, by the Greeks.
