Lombardo's Odyssey offers the distinctive speed, clarity, and boldness that so distinguished his 1997 Iliad.

"[Lombardo] has brought his laconic wit and love of the ribald . . . to his version of the Odyssey. His carefully honed syntax gives the narrative energy and a whirlwind pace. The lines, rhythmic and clipped, have the tautness and force of Odysseus' bow."
—Chris Hedges, The New York Times Book Review

From the Publisher:
The translation (published in print by Hackett Publishing Company in 2000) and narration are by Stanley Lombardo, Professor of Classics at the University of Kansas. He is an award-winning translator and an acclaimed performer.

Susan Sarandon, Academy AwardŽ winning actress, guides the listener through the Iliad / the Odyssey / the Essential Iliad / the Essential Homer by reading the engaging introduction, the background stories and synopses. [for each of the 24 books.]

The Common Review
"The definitive English version of Homer for our time."

"The quality of Lombardo's voice, which has an honest, unshowy American core, makes these performances sound fresh, intimate, and believable--very different from those theatricized oral interpretations that overplay the "epic" note." -- Richard P. Martin, Stanford University

"The excellence of Lombardo's performance can't be lauded too much. There's no other translator of the world's greatest poetry that is also a world-class reader." -- Douglass Parker, UT at Austin

From the Author:
"This gave me the opportunity to participate in a project featuring two great and important works, Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and to further support the revival of Greek History and the Classics."
--Susan Sarandon
