Liam || Books 'n Beards (madbird) | 7 comments Hey all, could the description from the back of this edition of the Odyssey please be added?

"The Odyssey, which tells of Odysseus's long voyage home after the Trojan War, is one of the defining masterpieces of Western literature. From man-eating giants to the beautiful, dangerous witch-goddess Circe, from the eerie lure of the Sirens' song to the lavish hospitality of ancient kings and queens, this fleet-footed new translation by the highly acclaimed Stephen Mitchell recreates the lyricism, speed and grace of Homer's epic."

The book is also 375 pages long, and the publisher is Weidenfeld & Nicolson, not Phoenix as it is on the current record.

Thanks in advance!

Worldcat confirmed page number.
