I'm a geek for greek culture and litterature and I studied it for 5 years, so I even know really well the Ilyad and the Odyssey, and Omer's writing style and importance. The character's characterization: how it should be, how it is often mistaken, how I'd love it to be.
So I loved the new pov Malerba had about Ulisse and Penelope: his flaws and fragilities were shown, while her strength and intelligence were highlighten. She's not at all a passive female character , never been, and she knows her husband better than everyone else so it's so plausible that she recognized him way before time and that she was just furious about the way he behaved and about all the cheating that occurred during his 10years travel.
She had a little revenge, since she felt insulted by Ulisse's little consideration of her, of her mind and of her ability to keep a secret. He didn't trust her when he came back, even thou she was waiting just for him, without cheating him or anything and she was so pissed!
So pissed because she suffered so much and she didn't even have his trust after all the pain. On the other hand, I love and understand how traumatized Ulisse was from the Troyan war and from the long journey he did.
He was so weak, he was often brought to tears and this is just out of the ordinary and wonderful if we talk about a grecian hero. Although I admire this aspect about him, Ulisse was for sure an asshole since he cheated on Penelope a lot of time. And I cannot forgive him, in fact I've seen the way he has changed not for the best since the Troyan war and he's hardly excusable.
Impressed by this translation and this short, succinct, but powerful retelling of the return of Odysseus to Ithaca and a new voice for Penelope. There is a double narrative in multiple aspects propelling the story along. First we have the dual POV, switching from Odysseus and Penelope, the two eventually circling around each other through lies and fiction, doubt and surety. The narrative remains very true to the story as it plays out in the epic poem and fills in gaps where it sees fit, but does Impressed by this translation and this short, succinct, but powerful retelling of the return of Odysseus to Ithaca and a new voice for Penelope.
The narrative remains very true to the story as it plays out in the epic poem and fills in gaps where it sees fit, but does not embellish or lengthen the story. Then we have the surface story of the games the pair play between each other, the hurts and the rehurts, and then story lingering underneath that a reader with more familiarity with the Homeric poems will understand.
The question of history, memory, and who will be remembered as time moves forward lingers in the thoughts of both wife and resurrected husband. Whence does the truth come from? Who decides what is truth when so many exist in the world becomes the culminating theme towards the end of the story, and depending on how you read it, only the reader can decide. Very well written, deserving of its high praise. It contains that lyric movement and pacing as well as the current of gods and Fates.
With points of view alternating between Odysseus and Penelope, Ithaca forever: Penelope speaks reveals the mutual mistrust between the two protagonists in this re-telling of the closing stages of. Penelope, having penetrated Odysseus' disguise, rightly sees her husband's refusal to reveal himself to her as mistrust of her as much as prudent caution.
What follows is a mutual struggle for respect, supremacy and love. This is a wonderful reworking not just of the tale but of the origins of Homer With points of view alternating between Odysseus and Penelope, Ithaca forever: Penelope speaks reveals the mutual mistrust between the two protagonists in this re-telling of the closing stages of. This is a wonderful reworking not just of the tale but of the origins of Homer's stories themselves. Jan 05, Mirta Gianola rated it it was amazing.
