The Odyssey




The classic story now beautifully illustrated by Jan Pienkowski - famed for Meg and Mog, A Necklace of Raindrops and many others.

Brought to you by Penguin.

This Penguin Classic is performed by George Blagden, star of Versailles and Vikings. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Peter Jones.

The epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan War forms one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats - shipwrecks, battles, monsters and the implacable enmity of the sea-god Poseidon - Odysseus must use his wit and native cunning if he is to reach his homeland safely and overcome the obstacles that, even there, await him.
