This is the Homeric sequel: the tale of Ulysses, beset by a series of ever-more 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.--J.B. Hare
