About this title

Synopsis:

He aqui uno de los mas grandes poemas epicos de todos los tiempos: Odisea. En el se narra el regreso del heroe, Odiseo, a su patria, itaca, despues de la conquista de Troya.Compuesta como la Iliada en hexametros, recoge numerosos cuentos populares y leyendas que, adaptadas, se integran en la epopeya. De este modo, mientras que en la Iliada el tema central, la colera de Aquiles, va avanzando inexorablemente, verso a verso, desde su planteamiento hasta su desenlace, en Odisea el regreso del heroe es narrado, con arte magistral, sin recelar de las vueltas atras o de las digresiones, porque el objetivo supremo es lograr mayor gozo en la narracion de bellas historias. Todo ello se logra, ademas, sin que merme en absoluto la cohesion que mantiene unidos sus episodios. / Homer's epic chronicle of the Greek hero Odysseus' journey home from the Trojan War has inspired  writers from Virgil to James Joyce. Odysseus survives storm and shipwreck, the cave of the Cyclops  and the isle of Circe, the lure of the Sirens' song  and a trip to the Underworld, only to find his  most difficult challenge at home, where treacherous  suitors seek to steal his kingdom and his loyal  wife, Penelope. Favorite of the gods, Odysseus  embodies the energy, intellect, and resourcefulness  that were of highest value to the ancients and that  remain ideals in our time

About the Author:

Though he is traditionally credited as the author of the "Iliad "and the "Odyssey", there is no reliable information about an actual, historical Homer. In antiquity, he was an honored figure, despite little being known about his life or even his era; he was credited then with several other shorter works in addition to the two epics. Current scholarship tends to view the poems as the work of many hands over many years, with differing opinions on the role and importance of any single figure in their creation or promulgation.
