The Ancient Greece of Odysseus Summary


The Ancient Greece of Odysseus by Peter Connolly

This is a marvellous, superbly illustrated retelling of two great epics - "Homer's Iliad" and "Odyssey", following the fortunes of Odysseus, the craftiest of the Greek commanders. Interspersed with the story are pages of fascinating information about the true history of Troy, illustrated with photographs, maps, and Peter Connolly's unequalled reconstructions. Together, the two parts add up to more than the whole, and bring Homer's epics triumphantly to life. First published as "The Legend of Odysseus", this book, which won the T.E.S. Information Book Award, is now reissued with a new title.

The Ancient Greece of Odysseus Reviews


"This clear, vigorous retelling encompasses both Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, with occasional pages on historical topics: the archaeology of Troy, Mycenaean Greek armament, Greek religion, etc. The book's pride and glory are Connolly's abundant, detailed paintings."--School Library Journal
