By Homer, Samuel Butler (Translator)
Hard to Find


Homer's epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan war is one of the earliest and greatest works of literature. His influence on the Western imagination is immense, and Plato calls him "the leader of Greek culture."

Samuel Butler has beautifully rendered Homer's Greek verse into English prose. (Unabridged, with footnotes.)
