The Aeneid by Virgil · OverDrive (Rakuten OverDrive): eBooks, audiobooks and videos for librariesCancel anytime. Since it was first published more than 25 years ago, Robert Fitzgerald's prizewinning translation of Homer's battle epic has become a classic in its own right: a standard against which all other versions of The Iliad are compared. Fitzgerald's work is accessible, ironic, faithful, written in a swift vernacular blank verse that "makes Homer live as never before" Library Journal. The great adventure story tells of Odysseus, a veteran of the Trojan War, who - through a landscape peopled with monsters, sea nymphs, evil enchantresses, and vengeful gods - makes his tortuous way home to his faithful wife, Penelope. Shipwrecked numerous times, faced with apparently insurmountable obstacles, offered the temptations of ease, comfort, and even immortality, Odysseus remains steadfast and determined. Themes of courage and perseverance, fidelity and fortitude.

Carved close to the original Greek, etc, why. If so, with the driving cadence of its source - a translation epic in scale yet devastating in its precision and power. Also this is kind of a wonderful poem. Kyk.
