Hesíodo, Higinio y Homero escribieron, en tiempos y textos diferentes, sobre la espera de Calipsa. Que aguarda, desde siempre, por un hombre. Uno del que se había enamorado.
Hesíodo, Higinio y Homero se equivocaron: lo que espera es que el Astroides calycularis que le brota del cuello lo abarque todo y haga del mundo un mar otra vez.

Hesiod, Hyginus, and Homer wrote, in different times and texts, about Calipsa's wait. She has been waiting, forever, for a man. One she had fallen in love with.
Hesiod, Hyginus, and Homer were wrong: what she awaits is for the Astroides calycularis sprouting from her neck to encompass everything and turn the world into a sea once again.
