The Voyage of the Argo Summary

The Voyage of the Argo by Apollonius of Rhodes

The Voyage of the Argo 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, The Voyage of the Argo 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 is both modern and readable.

About Apollonius of Rhodes

Apollonius of Rhodes (third century BCE) was a Greek poet and scholar who studied under Callimachus at the Library of Alexandria. Historians claim it was there that his greatest work, the Argonautica, was written but ultimately rejected by his peers. Apollonius would flee to Rhodes to revise the epic and return to great acclaim. Some report he was appointed chief librarian but eventually left the city to spend his final years on the island of Rhodes.
