The Bending of the Bow: A Version of the Closing Books: Of Homer's Odyssey with Images by Jim Dine

Some brief overview of book

In this startling version of the closing books of The Odyssey Neil Curry has scrubbed the story free of all its side-tracks and digressions so as to leave clear one thread of Odysseus's final journey: from the shores of Ithaca to the marriage-bed where he is finally reunited with Penelope. Cast in language that has been equally pared down until it is spare, sinewy and colloquial, the vigour of Curry's narrative is compelling proof that Homer's poem was meant to be heard.
