Odysseus: A Life | [Charles Rowan Beye]

Odysseus: A Life

From an acclaimed classicist comes a witty, unusual, and fascinating "biography" of Homer's fictional Bronze Age hero, Odysseus. In this entertaining book, Charles Beye fills out the story of this extraordinary figure while at the same time portraying Odysseus' evolution through the course of a strange and adventuresome life, at times so remote, at times so immediate in the contemporary perspective.

    "The best of the Odysseus Tales on Audible"

    I've downloaded and listen to all the Greek mythology available on Audible - and this book is the best, absolutely top notch. It presents Odysseus' life and bronze age ancient Greece in vivid and gripping detail, understandable to people new to the topic, and a filled with details for the connoisseur.
