-Homer is great...Homer is great
I have first to struggle with the large army of preconceptions that I have. The problem is that I can't just remove them, they are just too rooted in my mind, but I hope at least to accomplish some peace accord between them and the strange thing that is Homeric Greek to them. If ever I accomplish that, all what I want is to throw the grammar through my window and just to read Homer as you can do it now.
