ODYSSEY a graphic novel by - PDFIt blends bits of Greek history and mythology with universal themes of the human experience. The Odyssey s early verse form helped specialized bards known as rhapsodes remember the story s details when relaying the epic adventure in live performances, and listeners enjoyed the stylized result. Scholars attribute the enduring written version of The Odyssey to the poet Homer, although it is unclear how much he borrowed directly from other bards. Today, the original text has been translated repeatedly and remains a favorite in high-school English curricula. From its roots in oral storytelling to the transcription and later translations of the text, Odysseus s story has evolved over time. With his new graphic-novel adaptation, Gareth Hinds continues the tradition of breathing new life into an ancient and universal story. Homer s Odyssey is one of the most famous and frequently adapted works of classic literature in the Western canon.
