The epic tale of Odysseus and his ten-year journey home after the Trojan War forms one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. @IthacaStateOfMind Uh oh. This cave is a giant’s lair.

Gran obra junto con La Ilíada épicas, sorprendentes, un poco complicadas... pero excelentes. Si no están familiarizad@s con el tema les recomiendo que lean un poco de Mitología y Cultura Griega. Recomiendo estas obras del gran poeta Homero. Sin duda uno de mis favoritos.
Enjoyed this more than the Iliad.
