The Odyssey PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Odyssey free pdf In this new verse adaptation, originally commissioned for BBC radio, Simon Armitage has recast Homer's epic as a series of bristling dramatic dialogues: between gods and men- between no-nonsense Captain Odysseus and his unruly, lotus-eating, homesick companions- and between subtle Odysseus (wiliest hero of antiquity) and a range of shape-shifting adversaries-Calypso, Circe, the Sirens, the Cyclops-as he and his men are "pinballed between islands" of adversity. One of the most individual voices of his generation, Armitage revitalizes our sense of the Odyssey as oral poetry, as indeed one of the greatest of tall tales.
