  1. I have read and taught the Odyssey at least five times over the past twenty years And Emily Wilson s version is a godsend It is, by far, the most readable version out there It never strains to be epic the way so many translations do Instead, she uses today s English while also hewing faithfully to the unrhymed iambic pentameter that Shakespeare, Milton, and Wordsworth established as the epic form in English poetry The result is a perfect blend between an Odyssey for today s reader and a poetic n [...]


  2. Emily Wilson s new translation of Homer s Odyssey is extraordinary in so many ways Among its many attributes is clear, and finely tuned language set in iambic pentameter that puts the poetry back in one of the Western cannon s greatest poems Readers need not wade through purple and overblown blank verse, twice the length of the original text to finally arrive, with Odysseus in Ithaca His story and character, as well as those of Penelope and Telemachus are fashioned in direct, active language tha [...]

  4. Emily Wilson has done something remarkable in presenting an Odysseus who s part Jason Bourne, part Dr Who and part Hannibal Lecter The language is vivid and it avoids the kind of ye oldiness which can bog translations down The introduction is brilliant too, explaining some of the weirder moments and putting some context to the story Welcome to the 21stCentury, Odysseus, you problematic old monster,you.


  5. This is the third translation of the Odyssey I have read When I first discovered Homer in my teens, it was E.V Rieu s spare prose that I reached for on the parental bookshelf At university, we were encouraged to use the award winning verse translation by the late American poet Robert Fagles And now, there is this this stunning accomplishment.I am no classicist, although I have read and studied a good number of classical works in translation However, I know good poetry when I encounter it, and Wi [...]
