A prose translation – The Odyssey

This is a review of Naxos audio book poetry unabridged of Homer the Odyssey. Read by Anton Lesser based on a new translation by Ian Johnston.

The product description, sadly, is lacking in detail. Is this a prose or verse translation? Having listened to this 10 CDs set I can confirm this is a prose translation.

The translator Ian C. Johnston (born September 27, 1938) is a retired university-college instructor and a professor emeritus at Vancouver Island University. Anton Lesser’s reading is clear and easy to listen to. The total time is 12 hours 46 minutes.
