The first great adventure story in the Western canon, The Odyssey is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty and power; about marriage and family; about travellers, hospitality and the yearning for home. Classicist Emily Wilson discusses her new translation of The Odyssey – the first English translation by a woman. She talks about her work on the text and reveals how the ancient story is relevant today.
She is in conversation with Sarah LeFanu.
