This classic retelling of Homer's Illiad and Odyssey — written for young readers by Ireland's great poet and playwright — recalls the legendary characters of ancient Greece and their amazing adventures. Both epics are recounted here in The Adventures of Odysseus and The Tale of Troy.
Youngsters will travel with Achilles, who, guided by the gods, seeks vengeance on the Trojans. They'll follow Odysseus on his perilous journey to the land of the Cyclops, a race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of his forehead. They'll encounter Circe, the evil enchantress who turns Odysseus's men into swine; meet the terrible sea monster Charybdis, who, with Scylla, a six-headed serpent, threatens passing ships and their crews; and confront other wicked forces that attempt to keep Odysseus from returning to his faithful wife, Penelope.
Unequaled as an introduction for youngsters to the classic myths, Colum's stirring tales, enhanced with 17 delightful illustrations by Willy Pogany, offer hours of thrill-packed reading.

Unabridged republication of the work first published by The Macmillan Company, New York, 1918.
