Je moet wat moeite doen om al die lange uitweidingen en uitgebreide omschrijvingen uit te zitten, maar dit is onmiskenbaar zowat de grootste klassieker uit de Westerse geschiedenis. En hé, gelijk welke opoffering is niets in vergelijking met wat Odysseus heeft moeten doorstaan.

De Kyklopen en de Laistrygonen,
de woeste Poseidon zul je niet tegenkomen
wanneer je ze niet in je eigen geest meedraagt,
wanneer je geest hun geen gestalte voor je geeft.

Troje brandde nog in een reusachtige vuurzee, uit de hemel regende het pijlen van vuur met oorverdovend gekrijs, schimmen van gevallen krijgers jammerden luidkeels te midden van de rook en de vlammen, rusteloze geesten zonder vrede op de drempel van de Hades.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The extraordinary story of a legendary hero continues. After ten years of uninterrupted war, blood and agony, the Trojans have finally been defeated. Odysseus and his men begin the epic journey of returning to Ithaca. Along the way, terrifying enemies await them: the cyclops Polyphemus, the lotus eaters who feast on narcotic flowers that give only oblivion, the sorceress who turns men into swine, and the deadly, enthralling sirens. Odysseus is determined to make his way home to Ithaca, where his beloved family have awaited him for many long years. But his journey will present him with new, terrible perils ones that he could not have dreamed of even in his wildest nightmares.
