Odysseus by Charles Rowan Beye

Book Description

Everyone knows something about Odysseus: how he defeated the Trojans in a surprise attack with a massive wooden horse, wandered the Mediterranean seas for years trying to get home and confronted the Cyclop. Odysseus turns up everywhere from Homer's original epics, Tennyson's poem 'Ulysses' and Joyce's literary masterpiece of the same name, to the recent Coen brothers film O Brother Where Art Thou, which was based on his adventures. But no one has until now chronicled Odysseus's life from start to finish. In this entertaining 'biography', Beye does just that.
