Homer Shook the World

Homer's the "Iliad and the "Odyssey" by Alberto Manguel

This is one of the forthcoming titles in the "Books That Shook the World" series that I'm interested in: Alberto Manguel analysing The Homeric classics. I'm not even sure why I'm looking at it when I have not tackled the Homeric epics yet. Probably because of the nifty "H" on the cover.

This reminds me: that article writer who strongly implied the impossibility of anyone reading the epics on one's own inclination never did reply to my e-mail. Imagine that.

I couldn't stop laughing when I read your comment. How dare she. :)
