The Trojan War is over and Odysseus, the cunning King of Ithaca, sets out for home.
It is a long 10-year journey, fraught with dangers, from Polyphemus, the one-eyed Cyclops, and the seductive Sirens, to the love of Calypso on her all-too-comfortable isle.
When he arrives in Ithaca, he has to contend with a group of suitors who have been pressing his wife to forget her husband, admit she is a widow, and marry one of them.
Anton Lesser, one of Britain's finest audiobook stars, brings this great classic to life in the new and imaginative translation by Ian Johnston.
