The Voyage of the Argo: The Argonautica, is an epic poem centering Jason and his legendary crew as they venture to find the Golden Fleece. Faced with various hurdles and unbeatable odds, they’re committed to achieving their ultimate goal. When a young man threatens the throne, King Pelias sends him on a futile mission to Colchis. Once there, the fearless Jason must confront the volatile King Aetes and seize his most valued possession—the Golden Fleece. With help from the Argonauts, Jason navigates multiple challenges including winged harpies, violent waters and six-armed brutes. Despite surprising obstacles, the heroes continue and are pushed to their mental and physical limits. Much like Homer’s Odyssey, i>The Voyage of the Argo: The Argonautica, is a staple in Greek mythology. It’s a classic hero’s journey full of unexpected detours and ambiguous characters. Although a product of the Hellenistic period, this enduring epic has stood the test of time, continuing to captivate and inspire. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Voyage of the Argo: The Argonautica is both modern and readable.
