We will be reading George Steiner’s overview of the history of English Homeric translation in “Homer in English,” selected Odyssey excerpts from Richmond Lattimore, Robert Fagles, and Emily Wilson, as well as Wilson’s Translator’s Note and a review of her recent translation. Readings can be found here.

Lunch will be provided but please RSVP to Eileen Robinson.

Though we hope for participants’ regular attendance, we encourage everyone in the Princeton community who is interested in a given session’s topic to attend.
