« The Odyssey Project (by Stacey Harwood) | Main | Now You Said It! God bless you Mr. Berlin. Happy Independence Day »

July 03, 2011


My favorite parts, when I read the Odyssey back in the dim mists of time (i.e. 9th grade), were the Cyclops and when Ulysses comes home and his old dog remembers him. Of course I'd like the dog part, right.

i was eager to join in, but a damn crow flew by and took off over the wine dark sea with my copy... maybe next summer

C'mon Bill. Don't blame the crows . . .

well actually they were aided by a male cardinal who could be heard to say as he flew away with my book..."fear also the gods’ anger, lest they, astonished by evil actions, turn against you"....

A lovely post, and a great reminder that nothing, no other reading pleasure, quite measures up to the joy of reading a masterwork for the first time. DL
