About this Recording

HOMER: Odyssey (The)

Homer’s Odyssey is the thrilling and moving tale of the wanderings of the hero Odysseus after the end of the Trojan war. For ten years he experiences storm, shipwreck and seduction as he tries to find a way home to Ithaca, contending with the wrath of Poseidon but protected by Pallas Athena. Meanwhile, his wife Penelope is beset by suitors who believe him dead. William Cowper’s 1791 verse translation captures both the touchingly human episodes and the adventurous sweep of Homer’s original.
