These two books of the Odyssey provide an ideal introduction to the poem, illustrating Odysseus' cunning intelligence at its best as he gains acceptance in the court of the Phaeacians, and, above all, the subtly drawn character of Nausicaa. This edition replaces the much used one by G.M. Edwards (1914). It contains text (now unexpurgated) and vocabulary, expanded commentary and new introduction. It is geared very much to the needs of those coming to Homer for the first time with a grasp of the basics of classical Greek, and assumes no previous knowledge of Homeric forms or grammar. An outline of Homeric forms, grammar, and Homeric hexameter is given in the introduction and grammar points are reiterated in the commentary. The introduction also provides an outline of questions surrounding Homer and the composition of the Iliad and Odyssey, together with a discussion of the role of books VI and VII within the epic's overall structure. This is the ideal book with which to begin and enjoy Homer.

Es könnte auch alles ganz anders gewesen sein: Odysseus entscheidet sich gegen den Bau des Trojanischen Pferdes; Polyphem, der bösartige Zyklop, ist ein sanftmütiger Riese; Penelope, des Wartens müde, hat längst einen anderen geheiratet oder aber: Als der Held endlich im heimatlichen Ithaka angekommen ist, langweilt er sich bald so sehr, daß er erneut die Segel hißt ... In seinem hochgelobten Debütroman erfindet Zachary Mason Homers Epos vom listenreichen Odysseus und seinen Irrfahrten ganz neu. Spielerisch packt Mason den Klassiker, stellt ihn auf den Kopf und präsentiert einen frischen, zeitgenössischen Roman über die Reise eines Mannes zu sich selbst. Und schafft dabei mit leichter Hand die Illusion, daß dieses Buch der verlorengegangene Urtext von Homers Meisterwerk sein könnte. Mason ist ein wunderbar amüsantes, kluges und wagemutiges Buch gelungen, das den postmodernen Erzählungen von Jorge Luis Borges und Italo Calvino in nichts nachsteht.
