The Odyssey, Book 1-12 Viral Books I can't read Classical Greek, but it was fun to be able to look at it from time to time and try to pick out pieces here and there. I was surprised how much I enjoyed Murray's translation which is not one I recall hearing about before but is absolutely first rate in terms of clarity, readability, and Homeric gravitas.. A substantial introduction covers many of the questions that lie behind the poem, including a thorough summary of Homeric grammar the text is elucidated with full annotations, indexes and bibliography.. Good Book The Odyssey, Book 1-12 Wonderful piece of literature. This is definitely one of my favorite things to read in high school and in college.Odysseus has a hard time trying to get home, but he never gives up; even after being stuck on the island with Calypso, he still dreamed of seeing his wife and his homeland.I wish people nowadays could have this strength, loyalty and morals. The world would be a better place with more people like him.
