The Return of Ulysses - A Cultural History of Homer's Odyssey

£19.99

Product description

Published by I B Tauris (2008).

'The Return of Ulysses' explains Homer's epic in terms of its susceptibility to adaptation. Not only has the story reflected a myriad of different agendas, but from the tragedies of classical Athens to detective fiction, film, travelogue and opera, it has seemed perhaps uniquely fertile in generating different artistic forms.

Edith Hall is a British scholar of classics, specialising in Ancient Greek Literature and cultural history, and Professor in the Department of Classics and Centre for Hellenic Studies at King's College London.

This book is in very good condition with some shelf wear/creasing to top edge of dust jacket.
