Product Details

About the Author

Edith Hall is Professor of Classics at King's College London. She is the author, co-author and editor of many books in the field - including the Penguin Classics' translation of Sophocles' Antigone, Oedipus the King and Electra - and regularly contributes to TV, radio and professional theatre.


'The Return of Ulysses represents a major contribution to how we assess the continuing influence of Homer in modern culture.' - Simon Goldhill, Professor of Greek Literature and Culture, University of Cambridge. 'Hall's rich appraisal will be greeted as the definitive investigation of a fascinating and many-sided phenomenon.' - Marilyn B Skinner, Professor of Classics, University of Arizona. 'A brilliant, cultured and far-reaching tool for interpreting the Odyssey, The Return of Ulysses will both teach and delight.' - Richard F Thomas, Professor of Greek and Latin, Harvard University. 'Like her Homeric model, the author does not opt for a simple chronological approach... She has stitched the whole thing together in a way that appears seamless.' - Times Higher Education. 'Enlightening and entertaining... Hall fills her pages with sharp and often surprising observations about the Odyssey and its spiritual children... Reading her good humored and accessible book is like conversing across the ages.' - New York Times. 'In The Return of Ulysses Edith Hall takes us on a tour of global culture high and low, mostly from the last hundred years, to demonstrate how Homer's great poem continues to permeate our sensibility and imagination. She is an informative and enthusiastic guide, and the sheer wealth of her examples is impressive.' London Review of Books. 'Hall's well-informed, breezy book, The Return of Ulysses... sparkles with... excitement... Her explanation of the epic's entertainment value rests... on... fast-paced narration.' Joy Connolly, The Times Literary Supplement.
