Finally reading Emily Wilson's translation of The Odyssey right now and it is just STAGGERINGLY compelling. Direct without losing the beauty of the language. I'm flying through it.

@lubellwoo What an endorsement! I just requested it from my library's ebook division, I hope they buy it!

@AesAthena Bless you for requesting things from your library! The best kind of civic engagement 💛
