The book recommends a tentative reading of Odyssey on the basis of the ambiguous nature of the epic’s first four rhapsodies: the gods know that Ulysses is alive and destined to return to Ithaca; humans consider Ulysses crushed and dead. A dialogic either-or is produced through the convergence of divine knowledge and human ignorance: Ulysses may be alive, but he might as well be dead. This is how the work begins, and this is a first manifestation of poetic dialectics in Odyssey.
