"The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel" is an epic poem by Greek poet and philosopher Nikos Kazantzakis, based on Homer's Odyssey. It is divided into twenty-four rhapsodies as is the original Odyssey and consists of 33,333 17-syllable verses. Kazantzakis began working on it in 1924 after he returned to Crete from Germany. Before finally publishing the poem in 1938 he had drafted
seven different versions. Kazantzakis considered this his most
important work. It was fully translated into English in 1958 by Kimon Friar. (Wikipedia)
