Overview

Odyssey by Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta

Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta, artist, philosopher, architect and music composer, presents a new long poem, this time the Odyssey, on Alexander Pope's legendary translation from the Greek. It is a different poem, bringing something of the magical universe of Homer to our days. His other books of the kind, like his fabulous poem on Walt Whitman or on Cicero, created a strong impact on the readers.
