Homer�s epic has suddenly caught my interest. I always thought that I would not be patient enough or smart enough to read and understand poetry of this calibre. But hey! Not bad: so far the story makes sense.
Having been brought up on egalitarianism and pacifism, the glorified martial nature and treatment of women characters in the epic seems rudely out of tune for me. But can�t really blame the Greeks for that. I�m just through two books. Got twenty-two more to go.
