Idem nefastos dies fastosque fecit, quia aliquando nihil cum populo agi utile futurum esset. He also established days on which no public business could be transacted and days on which it could, because sometimes nothing profitable ought to be done with people. ...

Solve metus

Learning Latin



Solve metus

Best "scholarly" edition of the Iliad

Homeric Greek and Pharr's Homeric Greek - A Book For Beginners



Best "scholarly" edition of the Iliad

Van Thiel's edition has relatively large margins. It has also the advantage that the whole Iliad fits in one volume. Also, some "heretics" still think it's the most reliable scholarly edition at present. (But for a scholarly edition, I would personnally recommend West)


OK, ...

Where do you write your notes?

Homeric Greek and Pharr's Homeric Greek - A Book For Beginners



Where do you write your notes?

At the moment I use a sturdy notebook. However, as my notes grow less numerous it would be nice to just scribble them in the sideline. I have this vision of one day being able to (re)read Homer in my comfy chair or sitting ...
