"Sing in me, Muse, and through me tell the story
of that man skilled in all ways of contending,
the wanderer, harried for years on end,
after he plundered the stronghold
on the proud height of Troy."

I love these Penguin clothbound classic covers, but I'll admit that Rieu's translation is not my favorite.

The best scene in #theodyssey is when Odysseus and his man are doing some terrible dancing to some dumb flute music. Every year I make my students jam out just like them; these guys nailed it.

Rain delays on the wall...Detail of new inside work I'm excited about. "I wonder how long it will take them to figure out they both adopted this punk rock persona about 8 months ago..."

Artist @Ozmone - Homage to Capri, known in Greek mythology as the isle of the Sirens. The mural is located near the center of Anacapri, in front of the famous "casa rossa" in P.zza La Torre.

In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.
Ancient descriptions depict them as birds with beautiful human heads. The fact that their images are often found on ancient Greek tombs tells us they might have been funerary deities. It was the Romans who started looking at them as sea deities more and depicting them as mermaids. Roman writers also suggest that the sirens are daughters of Phorcys, the God of the Sea.

Mentioned in Homer's "The Odyssey" "Ulysses knew that he couldn’t stop even his most stoic sailors from succumbing to the luring song of the sirens. As the ships sailed by, he ordered his sailors to fill their ears with wax as to not hear the seducing songs. Ulysses himself, however, wanted to hear the sirens’ beautiful voices so he tied himself to the ships mast so that he couldn’t escape." #capri

Hello Bookstagram!!! My name is Mindy and I am an English and Anthropology student. After admiring many bookstagrammers for a few months, I decided to finally take the leap and create my own! Along with taking photos of books, I am a writer for The Odyssey online, an attempted novelist, a member of the Beta Epsilon Chapter of Phi Sigma Pi, and a member of the UMass Theatre Guild! More posts introducing myself to come!
Pictured: my current read, the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas and the Fairyloot dragon scale scarf!
