Liberar a los clásicos es acercarnos a ellos de nuevas formas.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A carefully and beautifully illustrated edition, taking Jorge Luis Borges' favorite adaptation of this classic, and also including a version of the story by Margaret Atwood.
 
We all know the story of The Odyssey, even if we haven't read it. It is in songs, in novels, in poems, in pictures, in jokes. Blackie Books kicks off its collection "Liberated Classics" with the story of all western stories, giving a voice to Nick Cave and Mary Beard or Ovid. This edition takes on Borges's favorite adaptation and includes a version by Margaret Atwood in a very carefully put together, yet affordable, edition, and illustrated in full color by the great Calpurnio. To “free” the classics means to approach them in new and different ways.
 
World literature’s great classics, in accurate and simpler new versions, illustrated and commented on with an open mind and a light heart. Welcome to the undeniable pleasure of reading.
