The next elegant edition in the Knickerbocker Classic series, The Iliad and the Odyssey is unabridged and complete. The Iliad is the epic poem that tells the ten-year story of the siege of Troy by the Greeks.

Its sequel, The Odyssey, describes the journey that the triumphant Greek leader, Odysseus, takes back to Greece following the fall of Troy.

Together, they are among the oldest pieces of literature in the Western world and have given rise to many modern ideas. For Homer fans worldwide, this stunning gift edition has a cloth binding, ribbon marker, and is packaged neatly in an elegant slipcase.

Featuring a new introduction and the classic translation by Samuel Butler (1835-1902), this volume of The Iliad and the Odyssey is an indispensible classic for every home library.
