The Odyssey

Translation, Introduction, and Notes by Barry B. Powell

Barry B. Powell

  • Uses well-modulated verse and accurate English that is contemporary but never without dignity
  • Introduction by Powell sets the poem in its philological, mythological, and historical context
  • Only translation to provide on-page notes, facilitating the reader's engagement with the poem
  • Embedded illustrations (2-3 per chapter) provide Greek and Roman visual sources for key passages in each of the poem's 24 books. Each illustration is accompanied by an extensive caption
  • Audio recordings (read by Powell) of important passages, available at www.oup.com/us/powell and indicated in the text margin by an icon
  • 6 maps-the most of any available translation-provide geographic context for the poem's many place names
