The Illiad | Homer

Awhile back we created fantasy football teams with authors, we put a lot of thought and effort into this silly idea and we enjoyed it so much that we are back for baseball. Tonight, learn how much Matt loves this concept. Would he abandon everything and create fake author baseball teams all over the country? Maybe. We hope you make your own team and nerd out on this ridiculous idea. Enjoy!

"For nothing could be better than when two love in one house, their minds in harmony, husband and wife. Their enamora are jealous, their friends delighted, and they have great honor."

A brilliantly structured blend of literary analysis and memoir. Mendelsohn is a classics scholar and professor at Bard. His 81 year old father asks to sit in on his undergraduate seminar on The Odyssey. He agrees and it proves to be a surprising and enriching experience. Very moving. Really enjoyed the audiobook narration by Bronson Pinchot.

This was good, and interesting, but I wish the author had made up his mind whether to focus on Milman Parry's ideas about Homer or on his brief life and odd death. Trying to do both things made for a somewhat disjointed book. Still, I enjoyed what I learned about Parry's theories about Homer.
