    Kindle 3sant.co ↠ AeneidOdysseyIliad MOBI ´ aeneidodysseyiliad ebok, AeneidOdysseyIliad KindleI was one of those English majors who never really read the books in school they were supposed to I'm a slow reader and just didn't feel I had the time So after I graduated I went back and read the ones I'd always really wanted to read In that process I finally got to all three of these the Iliad Odyssey and the Aeneid mostly while afloat in the Navy with no where else to goThe Iliad and Odyssey are great and I found that the lyrical style was something I actually enjoyed While the poety format and traditional oral devices make them harder to read for some they made it easier for me And I was always a mythology fan as a kid

    Kindle 3sant.co ↠ AeneidOdysseyIliad MOBI ´ aeneidodysseyiliad ebok, AeneidOdysseyIliad KindleWell you have to read it sometime right? Maybe this isn't too odd of a reason but I picked this version of Odyssey because of the beautiful design printed and deckled paper I believe the 'feel' of a book adds alot to the experience Robert Fagles is amazing After I read Illiad and then Aeneid I'm convinced he's one if not the greatest living translator The story reads near conversational which means you don't have to bother with many footnotes But the big draw for me is that it loses it's verve and potency especially in the battle scenesI also like that Fagles did not indulge in poetry and simply chose his words wiselyPS After having already read Robert Fitzgerald's translation of Virgil's Aeneid and finding it very dull I decided to read Fagles take on it I can't recommend the Fagles translation enough

    Kindle 3sant.co ↠ AeneidOdysseyIliad MOBI ´ aeneidodysseyiliad ebok, AeneidOdysseyIliad KindleFagles' translation is by far my favorite at least of the Greek WorksMandlebaum for the Aeneid Fagles seems comfortable walking the tightrope between originalism and accessibility although it seems that when he errs all translators must he does so on the side of accessibility rather than originalism
