Reading List, Week of 2018-04-09

Image result for odyssey emily wilson  2199365

A while ago I read Emily Wilson's new translation of The Odyssey, and quite enjoyed it, even though I still prefer the majestic Fagles translation... I followed that up with The Lost Books of the Odyssey, which is truly amazing... Zachary Mason's poetic re-imagining, retelling, and re-inventions of  Odysseus' adventures is absolutely mindbending...
