My library hold came in! The new translation of The Odyssey by Emily Wilson. Here's a NYT piece on it: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/02/magazine/the-first-woman-to-translate-the-odyssey-into-english.html
This is the first English translation by a woman. In our language's 500-year history this is the first time society and academia and economics have aligned just right so that for once a member of the other half (more or less) of the human race got to take a crack at it.
@nev !!!! i have Many Feelings about this translation
@nev I've heard so many good things about this translation!!!
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
