"It's time for reflection.
It's time to listen again.
We need to relearn to listen.
The word above all and the listening.
Stories that have survived the passage of time."

Synopsis

Baricco decides to create a prose version more in line with his literary style, setting aside the archaic lexicon to achieve a narrative with more life and rhythm. He makes some modifications to the original text, eliminating everything he deems unnecessary. For instance, he skips the lengthy catalog of ships and crew heading towards Troy. He removes the intervention of the Homeric narrator, placing the story on a more human and earthly plane. Additionally, he changes the literary formula by having the characters speak in the first person instead of the third, to facilitate the audience's identification with them.
