Review: The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel

User Review  - Adam Geisler - Goodreads

Epic indeed. This tome picks up right where Homer left off. Kazantzakis takes his borrowed protagonist on new adventures with fresh companions and challenges. As a translated poem, some of the rhythm and meter probably get distorted, but it still mirrors its predecessor in ambition and breadth. Read full review

Review: The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel

User Review  - John Yiannoudis - Goodreads

Of course not a book to read sequentially.... but an excellent piece of art, a huge impressive stone in the heart of Greek contemporary poetry and of course a beauty in terms of all the new words created and used by great Kazantzakis. Read full review
