The Odyssey of Homer: Done Into English Prose (Classic Reprint)
Fb&c Limited, Nov 23, 2016 - 460 pages
Excerpt from The Odyssey of Homer: Done Into English Prose
The Arguments prefixed to the Books are taken, with very slight alterations, from Hobbes' Translation of the Odyssey.
It is hoped that the Introduction added to the second edition may illustrate the growth of those national legends on which Homer worked, and may elucidate the plot of the Odyssey.
