Odisea en una pieza clave de l. a. cultura universal.
La presente edicióncuenta con un prólogo y l. a. magnífica versión en verso de Fernando Gutiérrez, así como una introducción y un aparato de notas elaborado por el traductor y periodista Joan Casas, y un epílogo escrito por el poeta, ensayista y traductor José Ángel Valente.
«Los mortales se atreven, ¡ay!, siempre a culpar a los dioses
porque dicen que todos sus men nosotros les damos,
y son ellos que, con sus locuras, se atraen infortunios
que el Destino jamás decretó.»
