Book Description:
Odysseus recounts his struggles to sail home to Ithaca in one of the greatest pieces of storytelling in Western literature. 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.

Dramatization on 3 CDs.
