 “Wilson’s translation is pared down but accurate and readable; it maintains the intrinsic interest of the story and the rapid forward momentum of the poetic line.  The metrical regularity is a rare and welcome feature in a modern translation.  The diction and tone are contemporary but not slangy or prosaic.  All in all, a compelling Odyssey for our time.” —Lillian  Doherty, University of Maryland
