When I bought this audiobook I was expecting a story translated into old fashioned and heavy English, dense with complicated imagery and challenging to the ear. How wrong I was! This translation by Emily Wilson is a joy to listen to and sounds so modern considering the age of the original poem. I‘m not especially a Greek mythology lover but I really enjoyed the adventure and scale of this story. A very pleasant surprise! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cathythoughts Nice review! Sounds good 5d

Today is a hard day. My grandpa passed away a year ago. He was a great reader, and this is one of my favorite pictures of him. Just wanted to share it today in honor of him. I love and miss you, Papou ❤

Had to take a break from reading Starless Sea so I can finish up my paper on Spartan religious practices which is due thursday. Hot chocolate to help motivate me because I am not in the mood for writing 😣 #classicistsoflitsy #almostwinterbreak #iwillsurvive

Lysistrata | Aristophanes

An Ancient Greek play that is a strong contender for one of the funniest, raunchiest things I‘ve ever read.

To end an endless war, the women of Athens and Sparta band together in the decision to refuse sex until the war is ended.

Thank you for the chance to read this, @SerialReader . I loved it!

Bookzombie I think I might read this for #Booked2019 . I read a YA a while back that was a retelling or used a similar premise. 2w

✨I might have a small obsession with Greek mythology, but uhhh... this is Hera. 😍 I decided that Athena, Nyx, and Perseus needed a little sister. She enjoys sleeping, whining, chewing on bookmarks, and the occasional book sleeve when the urge arises.

Pots and Pans of Classical Athens | American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Brian A. Sparkes, Lucy Talcott

Very short chapbook. Pots and pans, as promised.

This one shows a drinking party. The types of pots used at such parties are in the rim around the bottom. Most of the painted pots shown have scenes showing how the pot was used.

Sappho | Sappho, Mary Barnard

When I see you, for a moment,
My voice goes,
My tongue freezes. Fire,
Delicate fire, in the flesh.
Blind, stunned, the sound
Of thunder, in my ears.
