En una anterior entrada ja ens referiem al llibre d’Alexander Aciman i Emmet Rensin «TWITTERATURE. The World’s Greatest Books Retold Through Twitter» i, en concret, a la seva versió “twittèrica” (“twitteriana”? “twitteresca”?) de la Ilíada.

Si voleu passar una bona estona us recomanem que aconseguiu el llibre i el llegiu. Ah!, i aprofitant: Algú es veuria en cor de fer-ho en català?

Oferim aquí un tast, un fragment, de la seva versió piulada de l’Odissea. Enjoy:

The Odyssey

by Homer

@IthacaOnMyMind

—————————————————————————————————————–

Dawn and her rose-red fingers fingered herself. Another morning! God, this island is terrible.

——————————————————————————————————————

Calypso wanted to marry me. Bitch. Who does she think I am? I have a wife! Thank the Gods for allowing my escape.

——————————————————————————————————————–

We landed on an island. Found a cave filled with food. How convenient.

———————————————————————————————————————

Uh oh. This cave is a giant’s lair. He has a taste for cheese, and my companions. He also has only one eye. Trying to keep from laughing.

———————————————————————————————————————

Got him drunk. Put a hot poker in his ONE EYE when he blacked out. That will show him — if he could see. LOL. Time to leave.

———————————————————————————————————————

Damn. Posseidon pissed. How was I supposed to know One-Eye was his son? What Olympian whore did he sleep with to get an issue like that?

———————————————————————————————————————

Escaped again. Found another island. Some hot babes up ahead. I’m married but it’s been years. Can’t hurt. A guy needs to get his freak on.

———————————————————————————————————————-

Circe a nut job. Time to go, but the boat is broken. Can’t afford AAA tow. I’ll push it. Circe turned my men into pigs. PIGS. Had a laugh.
