really liked it

The Odyssey is a true piece of art. While some may find it difficult to read, this epic poem is worth the time it takes to concentrate and fully comprehend the events taking place. Homer takes you on a journey with the Greek gods and goddesses to make his way back home to his wife, who has to fend off suitors who believe Odysseus to be dead. I read this as an English Literature student, and, now as a Creative Writing student, I more fully appreciate the complexity in the writing of Homer’s poem, even in the translated version.
