That drop...

"Men are so quick to blame the gods: they say
that we devise their misery. But they
themselves- in their depravity- design
grief greater than the griefs that fate assigns.” ― Homer, The Odyssey

It has been a couple of months since I’ve read an Odyssey translation cover to cover. Stephen Mitchell’s moves fast. I like it!

💐Book Translations💐

Here’s a thing we don’t talk about enough; book translations are just as important as the original text. I haven’t really seen much discussion about this on Bookstagram, but I am always studying the different translations of certain works—or reading popular commercial fiction that was originally published elsewhere, and wondering why certain choices were made in the translation. 🌸
Some translations—like Lydia Davis’ translation of Madame Bovary—are perfect works of art. I loved most of the ones in this stack. But there’s one or two of these that I thought could’ve had another round or two of edits...but that’s just me, and I’m not an expert on these things. Girl With A Dragon Tattoo...I know the author died before publication, but I’m sure it’s a jumble in any language—and to be clear, I do love the original trilogy, but I can still have qualms. 🌸
Anyway, I was wondering if you guys ever pay attention to different translated works and if you ever find any more interesting than others. Do you have an all time favorite translated work? Let me know, and if you wanna discuss, it’s literally one of my favorite discussion topics. 💛💛

I haven't read many of the classics so starting to keep some that come in and delve into them over time. Homer, The Odyssey is a nice one to start with. Plato inbound as well.

Need to read it x 829292 I've been neglecting this ol boy but am planning to pick it up over the christmas holidays!

Been very busy lately but I managed to find the time to find a new favourite bookshop! Big call but I think it's the ONE! It has books about writing, books about reading, nature, literary criticism and art and oh! What a bookshop!

The past couple of days have been a bit of a dumpster fire at work. Sadly, no rest tomorrow because it's right back to school. For now though I get to curl up in bed with some Clash of the Gods. Fun fact, this show was my first in depth introduction to Norse mythology. Something that would become huge for me later on. #clashofthegods #historychannel #odysseus #theodyssey #greekmythology #theiliad #trojanwar #trojanhorse

#theodyssey, no. 27, the answer is not easy.

Proud to call these guys my brothers in business!💪🏻 P.S. this isn't all of them 😅

I sense a theme... Between Daunt & the wands, @chelle_fire & I went to a fab talk at the #londonlitfest on the Odyssey with a panel including Mary Beard & @madeline.e.miller #theodyssey #circe #womenandpower #allthebooks
