Los viajes y aventuras de Ulises. La anecdota suele regodearse sobre la figura legendaria de Homero, supuesto juglar ciego que iba de pueblo en pueblo cantando sus grandes narraciones epicas. La Iliada, una narracion de la Guerra de Troya, originada en el rapto que hizo Paris de la mujer mas bella del mundo, Helena y La Odisea, la descripcion de las aventuras del sabio Ulises u Odiseo en su vuelta a Itaca, su patria, terminada la guerra de Troya, sus aventuras en el camino y su encuentro con la fidelidad de Penelope, su mujer, que había resistido todos esos anos el asedio de ambiciosos pretendientes. La verdad parece ser que esos cantos fueron creados a lo largo de varios siglos, con poetas que iban agregando a la historia. Pero sea como fuere, las dos obras son de una fuerza que todavia, despues de 25 siglos asombra, y haya existido Homero o no, quien haya sido el autor de estos dos poemas epicos tiene su puesto asegurado entre los grandes autores de la humanidad.

The Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of everyman's journey though life. Odysseus' reliance on his wit and willingess for survival in his encounters with divine and natural forces during his 10-year voyage home to Ithaca after the Trojan War is at once a timeless human story and an individual test of moral endurance.

    " The Lattimore translation is marvelously close to the original, yes, but let’s face it — it’s prose (prose with unjustified right margins). Fitzgerald is correct, even when he takes liberties. And more importantly, his translation is genuinely poetic. "

    " Not exactly my cup of tea. Although I am part Greek myself, Greek mythology has never truly held my interest, maybe when I'm older I'll give it another shot, but for now I find the writing and poem great, but Odysseus and his men not quite that interesting. "
