Blogging The Odyssey

Greetings, fellow journeymen on the road of life! For the uninitiated, I am Elodie. I’m one of the people on this hallowed site who blogs things. In the past, I have plodded through the terrible decisions and abrupt dictatorships of Lord of the Flies; I have trudged through the bizarre foreshadowing and unmistakable homoeroticism of The Great Gatsby (only to be disappointed by the utter and egregious lack of endgame Natsby). Now I’m back to blog THE ODYSSEY.

The Odyssey has everything I look for in a book, including but not limited to:

  1. Wacky sea monsters
  2. A wily protagonist
  3. Sirens luring weak-willed men to their untimely deaths
  4. Zeus doing the stupid things

Speaking of which…
