Homer's epic poem The Odyssey is one of the greatest and most influential literary works ever produced. However, its complex language and dense web of allusions and metaphors can be difficult for some readers to untangle. In The Story of the Odyssey, author Alfred John Church presents a more straightforward rendering of the events related in Homer's version. It's a great introduction to the poem for younger readers or those just starting to get acquainted with ancient Greek literature
John Flaxman : the illustrations for Dante's Divine comedy by John Flaxman( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dante's Divine Comedy, one of the masterworks of European literature, has inspired artists from Botticelli to William Blake, and from Gustave Dore to Robert Rauschenberg and Tom Phillips. The great English Neoclassical sculptor, John Flaxman, is no exception." "Flaxman's drawings for the Divine Comedy are published for the first time in this volume. Famous for his designs for Wedgwood, Flaxman illustrated all 100 cantos of Dante's poem. The book includes the complete series of drawings, together with the preparatory studies, accompanied by Flaxman's annotations. A critical commentary on each drawing completes this book, an important addition to Dante studies and Flaxman scholarship."--Jacket
