TRAVELLING HEROES GREEKS AND THEIR MYTHS IN THE EPIC AGE OF HOMER

The tales of the ancient Greeks have inspired us for thousands of years. But where did they originate? Esteemed classicist Robin Lane Fox draws on a lifetime's knowledge of the ancient world, and on his own travels, to open up the age of Homer. His acclaimed history explores how the intrepid seafarers of eighth-century Greece sailed around the Mediterranean, encountering strange new sights – volcanic mountains, vaporous springs, huge prehistoric bones – and weaving them into the myths of gods, monsters and heroes that would become the cornerstone of Western civilization: the Odyssey and the Iliad. 'A beautiful evocation of a tantalizing world … Travelling Heroes is a tour de force' Rowland Smith, Literary Review 'Lyrical, passionate … his great gift is to make this long-ago world a vivid, extraordinary and sometimes frightening place … a wonderful story' Elizabeth Speller, Sunday Times 'Original, daring and arguably life-enhancing … produced with a sweeping narrative flourish worthy of a cinematographer or screenwriter' Paul Cartledge, Independent 'Lane Fox argues his case with tremendous style and verve … learned, and always lively' Mary Beard, Financial Times
